Dan & the Electros IT'S NEVER TOO LATE [Opus 3 Records/hybrid Stereo SACD] A REAL TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE


Featuring the talents of Bert Ostlund, also known as 'East', this music is inspired from the era when rock and pop music was more or less 'born' during the years of 1954 to 1963! The idea was to make a tribute album to some of the most important bands in Britain and USA that were very influential for early, mainly instrumental rock music, but instead of using any existing material, Bert decided to use newly written songs, and in the exact style and genre of all these great bands! As much as possible the original instruments of that time were used, such as a Hammond Chord organ that Johnny & the Hurricanes used or a Fender Stratocaster from 1962 - like Hank Marvin & the Shadows used. Available on Sony's SACD Format in stereo, not multichannel (which is on purpose, because this is music from the time of mono).

Opus 3!!

We sold more than a couple pairs of Martin Logans & Acoustats, due to their realism when demo'ed with Opus 3.

In the 80's, one of our salespeople and I ran into the Opus 3 guys at Summer CES in the suite of a high end line. They were stunned since to us, it was if they were our favorite rockstars!

The REAL DEAL!!

Wikipedia
Black and Blue is the 13th British and 15th American studio album by the English rock band the Rolling Stones, released on 23 April 1976 by Rolling Stones Records.

This album was the first recorded after former guitarist Mick Taylor quit in December 1974. As he had done the previous time the Stones were between second guitarists in 1968, Keith Richards recorded the bulk of the guitar parts himself, though the album recording sessions also served as an audition for Taylor's replacement. Richards said of the album that it was used for "rehearsing guitar players, that's what that one was about."Numerous guitarists showed up to auditions; those who appeared on the album were Wayne Perkins, Harvey Mandel, and Ronnie Wood. Wood had previously contributed to the title track from the It's Only Rock 'n Roll album, and became a full-time touring member of the Stones in 1975 and official member in 1990. The Stones rhythm section of bassist Bill Wyman and drummer Charlie Watts appear on nearly all tracks, and frequent collaborators Nicky Hopkins and Billy Preston play keyboards on most of the album, with percussionist Ollie E. Brown also appearing on about half of the tracks. The album was the second to be self-produced, credited to "The Glimmer Twins", a pseudonym used by Jagger and Richards for their roles as producers.

Black and Blue showed the band blending its traditional rock and roll style with heavy influences from reggae and funk music. Only one single from the album, "Fool to Cry", had any significant chart success, and reception to the album was mixed. The album received a few positive reviews at the time of release, though many reviewers found it mostly forgettable, and tended to rank it very low compared to prior Stones releases. Retrospective reviews from more recent publications such as AllMusic have been kinder to the album, with critic Stephen Thomas Erlewine stating that the album's "being longer on grooves and jams than songs" ended up being "what's good about it".
