Ron の電話インタビューは約20分で、その前後に Come and Get It と Day After Day が流れました。
Hello, everyone - Ron Griffiths here:
Regarding the Iveys live in Reading U.K. 1968 on CD, which I fortunately can finally make available for you. Again, I feel so grateful to be able to share any of the legacy of Badfinger/The Iveys from the 60s era. Thank you for anyone supporting this endeavour and I hope you enjoy the music.
The pre-ordering will start very soon, but I need to state that the actual shipping won't start until the end of June. There are still some things for me to get in order and I need a little more time than I originally thought.
Yes, some of you who have shown interest in this will get a private email as how to order just before the announcements on FACEBOOK.
As I've stated, this will be a limited edition project on CD because I don't want lots of stock sitting around for years to come. There will be downloads available, too, and those will come out at the same time.
But, be aware, the CDs could sell out so some of you may not get a CD copy. CD's will be first ordered, first served. There will be a limit of three CDs per customer.
Watch out on these sites for my PayPal address for ordering. Payment will simply be processed that way as of now, though other alternatives may be offered in the future.
Please, be patient with the mailing on this project, too ..... every effort will be made to get them out promptly.
Let's make these projects fun and keep it positive for me. I can't wait for your feedback.
Cheers for now Ron.
The Iveys - Purple Haze (September 6, 1968 at Thingamajig Club, Reading, England)
Pete Ham - lead guitar, Mike Gibbins - drums, Ron Griffiths - bass, lead vocal, Tom Evans - rhythm guitar
At last I am able to showcase more of the legacy of The Iveys - the band I was in with Pete Ham, Mike Gibbins, Tom Evans and David Jenkins and partake in the fruits of our work with the first release from my new venture “RL Griffiths Presents”.
I don't want to reiterate the past sleights and financial issues now. I just want to thank all who helped and have allowed me get to this point. And now I am able to have some of our rarer music out there for all of you toenjoy.My first release is a CD called The Iveys Anthology - Vol. 1, Live at Thingamajig Club, Reading U.K. - September 6, 1968.
I hope you enjoy this set, which was cleaned up and edited by Dan Matovina with help from Kevin McElligott. Because I do not have the facility to distribute myself : to avoid over-manufacture there will be limited edition releases that are distributed by Dan from the U.S. I can not enter into this complicated business aspect with my life as it is, so I appreciate his help in doing so.
There may be two limited CD editions. The first is to test the waters of interest and if that sells out, there will be one other limited edition extension of the CDs. Otherwise, downloads should be available.
Tieing into a Pete Ham tribute event being held today in Los Angeles, April 24th, I've allowed that some CDs be sold to bolster this event.
To start, there will be email offers sent out based a list of past Badfinger/The Iveys die-hard fans who will get exclusive first opportunity to order. Mailing will not commence until second week of May. I'll post the official start date of that and when a link on the FACEBOOK pages are available for ordering, plus any download opportunities.
This is my special treat for all of you who have stuck around and supported me over the years. I am forever indebted.
Yours truly, Ron G .
