MAGICK POWER

Just the most amazing song (and video)

Just noticed that the "Verified Artist" page for Opal on Spotify--while including an authentic band photo and bio--completely features music by an unrelated artist using the same name.

nice! it's nice that for a relatively obscure band, Opal/Clay Allison was pretty well-documented, bootleg-wise. here's one of their earliest live gigs: https://doomandgloomfromthetomb.tumblr.com/post/611039000197775360/clay-allison-mccabes-guitar-shop-santa-monica

"Rocket Machine" is such a jam. What a band.

(Release date on record shop sites I use went back to April the other day.)

So I think I read that the opal reissue from 2019 wasn't authorized? I see it up for pre-order now. Confused

god_of_hell_fire, Thursday, 27 February 2020 16:34 (five months ago) link

My guess (genuinely only a guess) is that it was put together by someone who thought they had the rights or didn't think there would be a problem with them, then a few copies got out, then there was a problem with the rights, subsequently resolved, release is back on.

otm imo

three months pass...

how did I space on the Early Recordings vol 2 mentioned upthread? I'm having a very enjoyable afternoon catching up. If I'd been handed a copy of this 25 years ago my brain would have exploded.

...is this available for purchase? It's on youtube for streaming.

that's not my post, Friday, 19 June 2020 03:36 (one month ago) link

It's a boot, apparently from a tape stolen from David Roback. A few of the songs are not Opal but another member of Rain Parade I think.

I can ysi if u ILXmail me

also paging f. hazel, I did email you but never got that link

sleeve, Friday, 19 June 2020 05:01 (one month ago) link

At least one of the songs on Early 2 is from the very first Rain Parade recordings. Matt Piucci talks about it in one of the recent episodes of the paisley underground podcast.

Elvis Telecom, Friday, 19 June 2020 07:33 (one month ago) link

yeah when Matt P was first made aware of Early 2 iirc he got mad because he thought it was a legit release and Dave R was ripping off his songs or something?

four weeks pass...

hrmmm

Sadly - they may never come out now - difficulties with David Roback’s management
