Retro Old 97's
PR reports: Rhino Records will be releasing an Old 97's retrospective, Hit By A Train: The Best Of Old 97's, on June 20th. The 1st-ever retrospective from these pop-savvy roots rock icons spans 1994-2001 including 18 songs from the band's first five studio albums, plus singles, live performances and a soundtrack contribution. Includes indie-era standouts ("Stoned," "Victoria"), the cream of their Elektra catalog ("Timebomb," "Niteclub"), and two live cuts ("Barrier Reef," "Nineteen"). 

The Old 97's, led by Rhett Miller, have a rich, organic sound that effortlessly fuses roots rock, alt-country, and pure pop. Known for the raw intensity of their live shows and the authentic Americana punch of their recordings, the band formed in Dallas in the early '90s. Their early singles and 1994 indie debut, Hitchhike To Rhome, led to a trio of critically acclaimed and crowd-pleasing albums for Elektra, beginning with 1997's stellar Too Far To Care and running through 2001's Satellite Rides.

Beach Products
PR reports: The surf's always up, the sun is forever at high noon and the summer never ends in the fun and frenetic life of founding Beach Boy member Al Jardine, who has his customary slate of exciting activities happening throughout 2006-including dates with his own Endless Summer Band (which includes sons Matt and Adam), a pending endorsement deal with a bottled water company, and an upcoming limited edition Signature Fender Guitar based on the classic 1962 Stratocaster he used on tour in the 70s and 80s.

For Jardine, "Endless Summer" isn't simply the name of his band or a perpetual state of mind-it's also a brand. His Endless Summer Brand, an extension of the harmonies of sun, surf and music, is being developed as a license for application on products in virtually every merchandise category. From sunscreen to schnapps, board wax to wearables, the label will resonate the popular theme, offering shoppers a never ending summer experience.[sounds like someone has been hanging out with Gene Simmons... see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
