New Jan & Dean Purchases
« on: September 21, 2010, 12:45:43 PM »
Anyone purchased any Jan & Dean releases recently?

Just got Drag City (£3.33) and Surf City (£3.22) on C5 Records, the first CD editions released in the U.K. in 1990.

Would like to purchase a copy of Command Performance/Batman but it is either £127 or £194 on Amazon!  Wish they would re-release it with the original artwork.

Purchased Ride The Wild Surf/Folk n' Roll on BGO for the original wide, better-sounding stereo mix of "Folk n' Roll" -- got the mono mix for Ride The Wild Surf LP on the same CD.

The "Command Performance/Meet Batman" One Way two-fer is OK but the mastering on Meet Batman is kind of flat (but stereo and the only issue I know of on CD).  Generally I'm not too impressed with One Way's masterings.  The C5 you found are great!

That's good to hear that the C5 CD's have good sound, will probably get all the Jan & Dean ones, I think they are as follows:

Dead Man's Curve / The New Girl in School C5CD 550
Drag City C5CD 560
Ride The Wild Surf C5CD 562
The Little Old Lady From Pasadena C5CD 574
Take Linda Surfin' C5CD 584
Surf City and Other Swinging Cities C5CD 585

Pity they didn't release Batman, shame to hear that the mastering is not too good on the One Way version, especially as it is the only version on CD that I am aware of.

That's cool!  Some of those sound rare!

Just had 'Dead Man's Curve/The New Girl in School' arrive on C5!

In the last two weeks, I got hold of Carnival, and Second Wave. Interesting pair to get at the same time. Doing some serious listening...

If you'll go buy Second Wave, buy it from Gertie Berry by mail, sending $20 plus a order request avaible in pdf in Jan's website.
The Memorial Edition rules! With new cover, some rare photos and great liner notes by Mark Moore.

No. I sent cash in the mail direct to her (I live in Brazil).

I'm still working with Gertie to get the Memorial Edition of Second Wave up on CD Baby and iTunes, etc.

It won't be much longer.

would be nice if Capitol/Liberty stopped sitting on their hands and re-released the Jan & Dean catalogue for the USA fans....
