LAST CHANCE TO GET A RIVERA RAKE HEAD - JAY GRAYDON SIGNATURE AMP!
You people probably know Rivera makes a signature amp called the Rake Head. At this point there are enough
panels, circuit boards, and key parts to build around 7 more and that will be the last run forever!
So if you like my tone, check
out my comments at the Hot News page, where you can also
find the link to the Rivera website with more data on the amp, plus images and a video in which I explain more about it. - Jay
PAST TO PRESENT - THE 70s - REMASTERED!
I just remastered Past to Present - the 70s and as usual, the incredible Fab
Filter plugins and some others as well allow so much
flexibility! This album is interesting as it is an adventure through my history leading up to the point of before
becoming a 1st call studio guitarist up to the point when I made the move to producing and writing. - Jay
AIRPLAY FOR THE PLANET - Remastered at 96k - now available as a physical CD!
As noted below we released
AIRPLAY FOR THE PLANET - Remastered at 96k
as a digital download at Bandcamp a while back. Since we have
been getting so many requests for a physical CD of this
remaster and since the 2002 version of the physical album has sold out, we have decided to make the 2017 remaster available as a physical CD
at CD Baby.
So, this remaster is derived from a source with more enhancement and with new artwork, and slightly new liner notes.
Here are a few comments from Jay on the various releases:
Please note that all but two tracks were recorded on a modified MCI 24 track analog recorder. I used the analog mix files to start with. The first CD version released in Japan
used the analogue mix files and recorded to 44.1k 16 bit digital for CD. The mastering was fair at best.
The next release in 2002 used the digital files and I tweaked EQ as to make sound better using the ADAT EQ, which does not allow automating the EQ.
Available at Bandcamp for download. This digital album includes unlimited streaming
via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.Liner notes for download in PDF format at the
Sonic Thrust Records page.
My album AIRPLAY FOR THE PLANET has been selling well and we are running out of stock so when almost out
of stock, CD BABY requests more. That opened a can of worms since the program Kerstin used for
the original artwork is out of date so she needed to start over using a new program. Since she
needed to redo the artwork, I thought it would be a good idea to re-master the audio.
JaR Fans, while we're mixing preparing our new project for release we offer this track Sometimes You Win which was the
bonus track from our Pony Canyon release of Scene 29. Please savor this classic Westcoast ballad while we're busy in the studio
putting the finishing touches on our next album project titled - CODE - Randy and Jay
