Good God it’s been busy on the run up to Christmas. Another new Western Star CD album packaging just signed off. Another great rockabilly band “Delta 88” have already released an album and a vinyl EP on the Western Start label over the years. This one features the gorgeous Betty Brosmer on the cover.
Artwork for another new band, “The Deadshots”, on the Western Star label just whizzed off to the pressing plant like a proverbial magic reindeer on Christmas eve. I’m told this is a hard hitting rockabilly band in the same vein as band such as “Jack Rabbit Slim” and “The Bullets” so not much to live up to there then! I know it’ll be stomping as Western Star keep all their production in-house for the whole process from recording the first track to delivering the final product and they don’t do half measures
This booklet started off as separate sheets per outing when I first worked on it in 1987! Here we are 31 years later and still producing this for North Walsham based Nenta Traintours but it’s now a glossy, full colour 40 page booklet (and has been for many years). Beautifully printed by Barnwell Print of Aylsham.
Vinyl is still cool! Here’s the cover of the forthcoming “Henry & The Bleeders” vinyl 7″ EP which I’ve been pre-pressing for Western Star this week and has just been approved so off it goes to the pressing plant for release early next year. Now working on their CD album too! The rock ‘n’ roll train just keeps on a rollin’!!!
The 2018 North Walsham and District Community Archive calendar has been delivered to my office from the printers today and looks lovely as always. This is the third year I have had the privilege to produce the calendar which has become a well loved and integral part of the town. We had lots of support from local businesses sponsoring the production and many calendars pre-ordered. A real community project.
