Exciting news from Artistry

We were pleased to hear from Colin Richardson, head honcho at the Artistry label this week, who tells us of some more archive recordings heading for CD release shortly. Colin revealed:

"The next CD is 'Artistry Remember the Stars of Easy Beat and Saturday Club'. This is a 21-track disc with vocals by the three stars of the show, Danny Street, Laura Lee and Tony Steven. Release date is Oct 16, 2012. 

"This will be followed by 'Artistry Beat Club', a 30-track compilation from the vaults of Artistry, with early sessions by Elton John, David Byron, Ray Dexter, Chester Kamen, Paul Wilson and others - with Accompaniment Direction by Alan Caddy, Richard Franklin, Steve Cameron and Chester Kamen."

So there you have it - more treasures unearthed from the vaults and coming to CD for the first time, which is bound to be of great interest to collectors.

We should take this opportunity to remind readers of Artistry's two David Byron session CDs (below), which are currently available through Ebay. Both contain material originally recorded between 1968 and 1970, for the Avenue label. David Byron is supported on vocals by artists such as Peter Lee Stirling (Daniel Boone), Reg Dwight (Elton John) and Dana Gillespie.
