Last year's SG101 Convention, as many of you know, was professionally recorded by THREE-TIME Grammy Award winning producer and engineer, Mark Linett. He mixed and produced 27 tracks by 15 bands that are represented on "Reverb Nation: Live at the 2017 Surf Guitar 101 Convention." The CD will arrive in time for this year's Convention on August 4.
"Reverb Nation" is an amazing collection of tracks that serves as much more than a nice memento of last year's event for those who were there. This CD presents some of the best contemporary instrumental surf music in a well-designed package (from our own Duff Paulsen), with wide distribution that hopefully will reach the ears of the non-initiated around the country and world. The hope is that this will act as a digital "ambassador" of sorts to help bring more into the fold. Having Mark Linett directly involved is a BIG plus for SG101, the Convention, and the music in general.
The official street date is August 7, but I believe the CD will be available on Amazon a few days before the Convention. After August 7, it will be available pretty much everywhere.
The CD is being released by Entree Records, a division of Sierra Records (the company that released the latest record from Chris Hillman last year). The SRP will be $17.98. CDs sold at the Convention are expected to have a special price of $12. After the Convention, I'll have them for sale at $15 on my website and eBay.
This is BIG, everybody. Please help promote this release however you can.
