Another CD packaging job sorted, this time for my mates in Norwich; The V8 Rockets. A hard working and well respected bunch of local musicians playing traditional rockabilly at rock ‘n’ roll clubs across the country for many years.
Latest CD packaging artwork job for the legendary “Western Star” label. This time for The Pat Winn Combo. Been having a chat with Pat this week and turns out he used to live about 4 miles down the road from me and work at one of the places we used to play back then! More Rock ‘n’ Roll goodness whizzed off to the pressing plant!!
Rockabilly hero Boy Butfoy, front man of “Jack Rabbit Slim”, with his first solo album backed by many top musicians including the guitar legend that is Darrell Higham. Artwork and packaging now approved and zipped off to the pressing plant!
Been a great day in the studio for music today as three CD album designs I worked on arrived in the post this morning. Two of these are compilations, one rockabilly the other psychobilly and it makes you realise the quality of bands and the amount of bands in the Western Star ‘stable’. I guess this is what happens when a record label only release recording from their own studio just like Sam Philips and Sun Studios, everybody associated with the studio becomes a family and guesting on other artists tracks. It’s awesome.
The other CD is the fantastic and long overdue second album from Stage Frite sounding considerably more ‘metal’ than the debut CD somewhere between the Long Tall Texans and the Krewmen I thought. Proper job
Just had another packaging project approved for Western Star. This is the second compilation CD in the “Rockabilly Riot” series with some great, current rockabilly bands like Darrel Higham, Hicksville Bombers, The Bullets, Jack Rabbit Slim, Devil’s Deuce, Rusti Steel, Delta 88, The Retrobaits, Sharna Mae and The Mayhems, Lew Lewis, and lots more. The first album in this series is fantastic (and playing in the studio here right now!!!).
