Just read today that Aztec has gone into receivership. What sad news - they are such a great reissue label. I have the first Masters Apprentices album and a whole swag of Lobby Loyde reissues. Aztec certainly did wonderful packaging. I always wondered how they would have covered their costs with such lavish packaging. I know from firsthand knowledge how the Half A Cow reissue cds sell. A whole lot better than any of the current releases do. In fact, some of the cds such as the Missing Links (60s) and Eastern Dark (80s) have sold 3000+ which is fantastic for me in this age of low cd sales. Purple Hearts, Wild Cherries, Someloves and Python Lee Jackson haven't done that well - especially locally but all the reissues do better on export than locally. This would be mainly due to the stores that could stock them (through my distributor) don't bother. Itunes sales of the reissue releases are up amongst the top sellers of the Half A Cow catalogue. And I reckon half the time it the original fans from the 60s diggin' on their iPod. And I love the 20 minute-plus phone calls from these original fans who ring up with their credit card number ready and then go on to tell me stories of the old days! Back to topic: Skyhooks, Triffids, Saints, Lighthouse Keepers, Mental As Anything, X. My faves.
