An unreleased studio session from 1979 with their original line up! Available as a limited pressing of 300 LPs with bonus CD featuring bonus live tracks or as CD only.
-Dear John-Frustrated Conversation - 30th Anniversary Re-Release 7" (BDR #5) – Originally released in 1981, and it's been a tough find for Power Pop collectors ever since. We found out why, when Robert Kuhlmann of Dear John let us know he found most of the original pressing in a closet on a visit to his mom's house! They had only printed a small number of sleeves, so we're repackaging the original 1981 vinyl in a new sleeve featuring a history of Dear John and more! A limited number of copies will also include a download card with bonus tracks.
-Max Load-collection LP (BDR #6) –Killed By Death stars! Straight up Midwest style Punk, basement psych and homemade ROCK from Belleville, IL, which is just over the river from St. Louis. Their brilliant X Rod 7” from 1979 and a bunch of demo recordings from '79-'83. Like a punk rock Monkees dreaming about the L.A strip circa 1976. Pop culture junkie overload music! We hope to also bring you a limited edition with a special surprise! Stay tuned!
-Page Three-collection (download only) (BDR #5.5) - 1983 saw Robert and George of Dear John with a new drummer and name change. After slaying the St. Louis locals for a couple years, they headed to L.A. This download only release will be a collection of studio material from their impossible to find cassette release, live songs from their energetic live performances and other things they turn up in their archives. Stay tuned for more details.
