HEADBAND RELEASES DIGITALLY RESTORED ALBUM AND SPECIAL EDITION DIGITAL BOOKLET
We are very honoured to announce the release of the digitally restored and mastered "HeadBand - A Song for GTooley" and the special iTunes digital booklet. The Blue Pie graphics team have digitally restored all of the images in the booklet and it has been an incredible process to get the booklet to showcase this incredible album.
This album is arguably one of the best Australian PROROCK albums to have been released from the early 1970's. The album and digital booklet are now available online at the iTunes store.
Headband became one of Australia's most popular progressive, blues rock bands that formed in early 1971 by bass guitarist Chris Bailey; drummer Joff Bateman; singer-songwriter and keyboardist Peter Beagley (later known as Peter Head); and singer-songwriter and guitarist Mauri Berg. Headband played progressive blues rock with symphonic, country and pop influences.
A year after their album “A Song for Tooley” was released in 1973, Headband had separated, Chris Bailey joined the Australian rock group "The Angels" in January 1977, and he was later a founding member of GANGgajang. Berg joined a new line-up of Fraternity in late 1974; it included John Swan on drums and vocals, and his brother Jimmy Barnes (Cold Chisel) on vocals. Peter Head formed a loose musical collective, The Mount Lofty Rangers, in 1974, which began with various musicians from Fraternity and Headband. It included Bon Scott, who left to join AC/DC before year's end.
Even though the band members had parted their ways into different musical avenues, their music was not parted from their progressive rock fans hearts. By the early 1990s, the original vinyl pressing of "A Song for Tooley" became a collector's item for psychedelic and progressive rock fans. Everything from the music to the original photo archives from the album were digitally remastered and retouched to give you the fans this incredible new release.
