NEW TOMMY BOLIN RELEASES!

According to Mike Drumm, THE TOMMY BOLIN
ARCHIVES' next CD release will be
TOMMY BOLIN: ENERGY. It will have over
60 minutes of music with top notch fidelity. Most
of the tracks were taken from actual mix masters
from various "demo" sessions that Tommy and
Energy did to try and secure a record deal. Also
contained on the release is a very rare and cool
instrumental track Tommy and Energy recorded
for a short film "Break On Through" . They are
continuing to develop the final master, and going
through a few other steps, and soon will
send out a flyer announcing the CD's
availability exclusively to The Tommy Bolin
Archives members. This is the first of a series
of 1999 releases that will follow the April 22
release on ZEBRA RECORDS of the upgraded
version of TOMMY BOLIN AND FRIENDS:
LIVE AT EBBETS FIELD 1974.

On April 25, Mike Drumm said:
We are in the process of putting
together a deal to secure the rights
to put out TOMMY BOLIN: LIVE At SLUGS.
This was a Jazz Fusion live performance
from Tommy, Jan Hammer, Gene Perla,
Don Alias, and Jeremy Stieg. It contains
some of Tommy's most incredible fusion
work...I think we are close to finalizing
a deal with Deep Purple...I hope. Also,
we are going to begin a series called
THE TOMMY BOLIN COLLECTORS SERIES CDs.
These will be limited edition disks of
Tommy music for the rabid collector.
They will be digitally re-mastered
items from the Archives. We will put
limited graphics in the package, and
make the music available exclusively
to members of the Archives...they will
not ever be in stores. The first release
will probably be EBBETS FIELD 74: THE
ALTERNATIVE TAKES. You see, they played
basically the same set both nights, but
there was quite a difference in the tone
and arrangements of the songs. Look for
this in our new flyer as well. This
promises to be a great year for more
new Tommy releases. If you aren't
registered with us, what are you waiting for?

CTTB REHEARSAL/OUTTAKES:

DEEP PURPLE - DAYS MAY COME & DAYS MAY GO...
The Hollywood Rehearsals, 1975

Note: In the U.S., the spelling will be:
DAZE MAY COME & DAZE MAY GO...

This new CD, released by RPM,
comprises over an hour of the best
of Deep Purple's earliest days with
Tommy Bolin. There are DEMOS of songs
-- some of which later made it on
"Come Taste The Band", two lengthy
(ten minute plus) jams, and some other
material which didn't make it to the
final album. Formerly just a rumor,
this previously unreleased material
is a window to the collaboration
between Bolin and Purple that all Bolin
fans have been dying for. The notes
include first-hand descriptions of the
sessions and never before seen pictures.

The CD will appear on the newly
reactivated Purple Label, check there for more
details
(http://www.rpmrecords.co.uk/dpas/purplab.html).


There was a significant delay in this CD's
release. There were unresolved
issues between RPM records and the
Tommy Bolin Archives, Inc. over the
release of this CD. The bone of contention
was over Tommy's estate's rights to the music
and share of the royalties. Johnnie Bolin,
as heir to Tommy's estate, is entitled to
Tommy's share (both sides agree to that).
There was apparently some legal question as
to how much he is due (NOTE: Most
of the music on CTTB was written by Tommy).
Come back for more information, updates,
outcomes, and estimated time of arrival of
this CD A.S.A.P.
