It's a start.  I hope the mastering is good and consistent.  I have a hodgepodge of C5, One Way, EMI, BGO, Sundazed...

I wonder if EMI will issue corresponding CDs with bonus tracks?

That's great news after all this time.

Is this in any way connected with the re-releases talked about elsewhere?

Great job Mark!
The guy that wrote the notes doesn't say anything about Jan being the producer of all that great music. Maybe you can write a review??

OK, the top right of this page explains it. You are doing the liner notes. Very Good!!!!

Yeah . . . Each of the original Liberty albums will eventually feature a PDF with new liner notes.

Even those initially posted without notes will have them added later.

WE have had problems with some CD issues - with compression taking away the highs and lows. I hope the downloads will deal with this. Really looking forward to good quality releases and the liner notes.

iTunes will be 256kbps AAC (yeech).  If these are going to be downloads only, I hope .wav or .flac is an option at other sites.  Does iTunes have exclusive rights?  Would like to see cover art reproduced exactly as the LP originals (although a case could be made against using the pink/black "Dead Man's Curve... LP)

Same for USA, along with "Surf City...", "Drag City", "Dead Man's..."  and "Pop Symphony No. 1" (with no booklet).  No indication of CDs yet.  There have been other digital releases recently but no booklet.  256k MP3 (sigh).
Title: Re: New Digital Releases

Pop Symphony and the few others currently without the PDF notes will have the notes added later.

Bummer to hear only the stereo versions will be available (again), but at least the music will be out there. Seriously though, how hard is it to put out mono versions of these albums, especially if it's only via download? I mean, i'm guessing the market for these releases is us plus about 1,000 other people, all of whom already have the one-way stereo cd's. Just sayin...
Looking forward to your notes, Mark!

Will the albums and digital liner notes be on ITunes.

Yes, it's my understanding that they'll be on iTunes.

The main post now has a list of links to iTunes and Amazon.

As more of the new releases become available, the list will be updated.

Okay, all of the original Jan & Dean Liberty albums (1962-1966) are now available in the digital market . . . via iTunes and Amazon (Capitol Records).

Extensive new liner notes have been completed for 10 albums so far.

The remaining five albums for which new liner notes are forthcoming include:

1 - Golden Hits Vol. 1
2 - Ride the Wild Surf
3 - Pop Symphony
4 - Golden Hits Vol. 2
5 - Golden Hits Vol. 3

My schedule is booked through the end of May . . . but I look forward to getting back into the groove for the J&D liners in June.

I just purchased COMMAND PERFORMANCE from Itunes.  No liner notes were included with the download.  Have the liner notes been deleted from these downloads for purchase?  I bought this primarily for the liner notes, so this is a tad bit disappointing.

Hmmm . . . The notes were turned in for that album. Not sure why the booklet isn't listed. It's supposed to show up as part of the track list (available for full-album purchases).

You might want to e-mail Capitol and call their attention to it. Tell them you paid, expecting to get the notes.

I don't really have time to investigate it right now, as I'm trying to plug away on the Sessionography stuff.

Thanks.  It was not part of the track list.  I have emailed both Capitol and Itunes.

I got in touch with Itunes regarding the missing Digital booklet liner notes.  This was their response:

"... After a careful review of your purchase, our records show that the album "Command Performance (Live)" you
purchased doesn't have the digital booklet included. My apologies for the
confusion this has caused."

I subsequently checked the downloads at Amazon.  Most of the Jan & Dean downloads released contain the digital booklet.  However, three do not:  COMMAND PERFORMANCE... RIDE THE WILD SURF... and JAN & DEAN'S POP SYMPHONY.  My hope is that Mark will post his new, detailed liner notes for these three albums on this web site, as there seems to be no other way to see them commercially.

Yeah, iTunes wouldn't know anything about it.

It's up to Capitol to place the tracks and notes on Amazon and iTunes. They have a department that handles that.

On the good side, the info in those liner notes (in slightly altered form) will be included in the Sessionograpjy book, for historical context.

Post by: AlJolson59 on July 24, 2013, 05:02:49 PM
There is no direct access to anyone at Capitol that handles those issues.  The only way to get a response from Capitol, as I discovered yesterday, is if you actually purchase the item directly from Capitol, on their web site, or rather, through their website.

It appears that Capitol either didn't bother to use your liner notes for these three releases or have withdrawn them.

So I assume, based on your response, that you will not be posting your missing liner notes liner notes from these three releases on this website?

At first, there was a lag in getting some of the notes posted . . . and then they appeared. It's just an oversight on Capitol's part. Nothing has been pulled. Working with them was actually a very cool experience.

Beyond that, Command Performance is the only thing missing. I haven't submitted notes for the other two, because I've since been focusing on the Sessionography project.

The notes will not be posted on the Website.

Such a shame no-one can or will help out with this problem, caution advised when considering purchasing digital downloads in case the liner notes have been omitted with no way of getting them elsewhere.  May cast a shadow upon those planning future hard copy publications due to being unhelpful.  Don't forget we're all brothers & sisters in Jan & Dean :)

Yeah, you have to check the track list carefully. If "Digital Booklet" is not listed, there will be no notes with the download.

what a difference the artists of today are,buy looking at this,Jan and Dean were pumping out 3 albums in a year,when nowadays artist pump out one album in 2-3-4 years,and both Jan and Dean were full time students as well,

Well done to Jan and Dean,
