I recently received an e-mail from Mr. John Compton member of the great late sixties "APPALOOSA" band, for the promotion of his music -- "Appaloosa" & his personal "To Luna 1972" album -- here in my blog. (see archives) There are some great news from this legendary band but I guess it's better to read the e-mail below: ............................... Hello Georgie! I am writing to thank you for creating a post for my 'To Luna' LP on your Small Town Pleasures Blog. My band Appaloosa has reformed and is presently recording our follow-up record.
News: I have suggested to Raven Records (Australia) that they consider reissuing our Compton & Batteau 'In California' LP. (Collector's Choice Music recently passed on the reissue suggestion) Feel free to ask some people to send emails to Raven Records saying "Please reissue Compton & Batteau" Here are the names and emails to people at Raven Records:
In closing, please find below rough mixes of two tracks form Appaloosa's forthcoming yet untitled CD: Bill Elliott who played keyboards on 'Compton & Batteau' and 'To Luna' will be adding his amazing piano parts. Daivd Reiser will also be adding his great bass playing. I Forgot To Ask Your Name MP3
Thanks again for helping to promote our music. Keep up the good work! Best, John
