Live In Texas - October 6, 1973A never before released full length concert album from one of the greatest undiscovered gems of '70s rock, Captain Beyond.
Formed in 1971 by members of Deep Purple, Iron Butterfly & Johnny Winter's band, Captain Beyond is heavy, spacey and most definitely far out.
This show was recorded just after the release of the band's second album, Sufficiently Breathless, during their tour with King Crimson.

Johnny Winter And LiveMastered from the Original Columbia Records Tapes by Joe Reagoso and Kevin Gray
There are live albums, and then there are definitive live albums from the classic rock era which were events on their release. Johnny Winter And Live is one of those rare releases. Recorded during his short-lived and much revered Johnny Winter And era, this early supergroup with Rick Derringer (The McCoys, Edgar Winter Group, Steely Dan), Randy Jo Hobbs (The McCoys /Johnny Winter) and Bobby Caldwell (Captain Beyond) were known for their incredible live rock performances. Two of these phenomenal shows are captured on this historical rock album.
Bill Grahams Fillmore East in NYC and Pirates World in Florida were the settings for this live extravaganza, featuring stunning renditions of blues classics Good Morning Little School Girl and of course B.B. Kings Its My Own Fault. As a nod to his favorite rock and rollers, Johnny even found the energy for more foot stompin interpretations of tracks which became his own definitive versions like The Rolling Stones Jumpin Jack Flash and the legendary Johnny B. Goode by Chuck Berry. This album was so jam packed with excitement that rock radio at the time would play the entire album sides because of the ground breaking performances contained within the grooves.

At Her Majesty's PleasureGentlemans Pistols formed in 2003 as a three piece with initial influences being the classic glam bands, Slade and especially The Sweet and heavy 70s bands such as Deep Purple and Captain Beyond. In 2006, the band released their first 7, Just A Fraction b/w Heavy Petting on the Leeds based Art Goes Pop imprint. Soon after, Rise Above records released another 7 for the band with the tracks, The Lady b/w Creamy Lid which was followed a year later with self-titled debut album. The album was well received by the music press with Classic Rock giving it 8/10 and Metal Hammer scoring it 9/10, saying Put simply, there should be more bands like Gentlemans Pistols around.
At Her Majestys Pleasure was produced by singer/guitarist James Atkinson and represents a labor of love, not to mention copious late nights, equipment malfunctions and frayed nerves. Despite developing a broadened musical palette including the use of strings and supplementary percussion, the recording nonetheless aimed to capture the band as they are in the raw, with little in the way of editing used. Indeed, what you hear on the record is how it was played, warts and all, with much of what is on the record captured within a couple of takes.
The album was recorded at James own Mutiny studios in Bradford, where the band practices. They had completed demos of the LP by the end of 2009 and were looking forward to getting the real thing laid down in the New Year. Come February however, they were all ready to go into the studio. Unfortunately, it seemed to be the coldest it had been in a long time. Due to the studio being in an old mill building, warmth wasn't a luxury we were entitled to, laughs James. Undeterred by this, the band soldiered on.
Despite quite a few issues with keeping the guitars in tune due to the temperature changes between rooms, most of the basic tracks were laid down relatively easily and by the end of Feb, they decided to take a little break before tackling the vocals and overdubs.
The end result is a collection of storming and strutting rock that should have little problem in putting Gentlemans Pistols at the forefront of UK rock n roll.Side 1
