      Seems like Empress Valley is collecting money and reissuing some old stuff these days. Let's hope they are on a good way to release some new soundboard.

      Finally, the label has just released Candy Store Rock sampler from already released Jesus box set as a separate, two-track set with individual artwork as pictured.

      Wendy has also reissued one of their older titles, On Stage Sydney. It is not a straight rerelese though.

      Finally a completely unhearded show has its debut on silver disc! Rocks In Atlanta is a single set from Empress Valley that features great quality audience recording for Hampton on July 5th, 1969. Unfortuntaley, this show is incomplete, and missing likely last three songs that have been accidentally erased. Still a gem and a great find here.

      The non labelled aka Lighthouse version just followed this path and reissued this show as Atlanta Pop Festival 1969, yet with exact same content.

January 27th, 2021

      Budokan 1972 1st Night Revisited is a double disk set from Budokan, Tokyo, Japan on October 2nd, 1972 released by Lighthouse team. This is likely a reissue of their previous set from few years back so nothing new here this time.

      The first title of this year is Stronger Through Shuffle, a double disc released by Wendy Records and documenting live performance from Rotterdam on June 21, 1980. The set consists of excellent sounding but partial soundboard tape completed with audience recording. Nothing new here nor significant upgrade in quality, this title is dedicated for completists rather than for casual collectors looking for new document.
