Aviary, Airrace, Surgin' etc.

I'll second Koogles and Misterpomp ... the Aviary re-issue is possibly THE best remastering I've heard ... ever!

As for Surgin', I haven't heard it myself, but the responsible label did it with the full cooperation of Jack Ponti (who wrote the liner notes), so it'll be okay, I think.

According to many regulars here, Airrace's "Shaft of Light" was apparently done without the aid of the original master tapes, and is hence best avoided ... a shame, as Beau Hill's production was an excellent one ... not too dissimilar soundwise to the brilliant "Crimes in Mind" by Streets (also Beau Hill, of course...)

Surrender ... which one? The late '70s Alfie Zappacosta venture, or the excellent independent '91 US band?

Oh, and I feel compelled to mention the excellent Bighorn album from '78 ... re-released by Sony Japan a few years back along with Trillion, Morningstar, Harlequin ("Love Crimes") ... a great series of mid-price releases, and not too difficult to find, either... (Got the Bighorn just this week via Amazon!)
