Sunglasses after dark

For those with long memories, The Javelins release their long awaited (almost twenty five years!) follow-up / difficult second album in late August through Ear Music. This is another 16 track romp through the music of the Fifties and early Sixties. Once again it has been overseen by Steve Morris and features Don Airey guesting on piano. The band remain as they were in 1963: Ian Gillan; Gordon Fairminer (Lead Guitar); Tony Tacon (Rhythm Guitar); Tony Whitfield (Bass Guitar); Keith Roach (Drums).
It was cut in Germany at Chameleon Studios in Hamburg during March. CD and vinyl editions are due.
There is an official audio stream of the lead track Do You Live Me on YouTube:

The first album recorded in Liverpool was issued by RPM back in 1994…

Alt sleeve

Deep Purple Infinite alternate Australian sleeve

For those who only bought the regular CD (hands up!) here is the cover variation of the 2 disc edition of the new album, the one with regular CD and the DVD combined.  I imagine in the age of vinyl us collectors would be madly trying to locate copies as it does look very different with this image on the front! Still finding that type a bit heavy handed mind…
How’s the actual music on the album faring up a month on though? I actually put a few tracks on, then ran some from Now What right after to try and get a feel for the two side by side at the weekend (while I was testing the hi-fi having finally got it onto the new shelves!).  I think my faves from Now What have a bit of an edge, sounding more thought out and planned. The stand-outs on Infinite still hold good though.  Now we’re just four days from seeing which tracks make it to the new set!  Sweepstake anyone?
