Blue Ash Special Bonus CD's!

Blue Ash Special Bonus CD's!

There will be a special limited free bonus CD when ordering Blue Ash's "No More, No Less" from Not Lame or Kool Kat Musik. The Not Lame bonus CD will feature unreleased songs from 1973 that were done "live" in Peppermint Studios.

http://www.notlame.com/BLUE_ASH/Page_1/CDBLUEASH1.html

The tracks are:
Hippy, Hippy Shake
(Chan Romero)
Baby You Lied
(Secich- Bartolin)
Now All You've Got Is You
(Kendzor)
She Cried For 15 years
(Secich-Bartolin)

(Lennon-McCartney)
I Thought I Knew You
(Secich-Bartolin)
Say Goodbye
(Secich-Bartolin)

The bonus CD album with Kool Kat Musik will feature a "live" performance
of 12 songs recorded on January 31, 1974 at the Packard Music Hall in Warren, Ohio! The band was opening for the Raspberries at this show - and, as you'll hear, they definitely had
their "game face" on as they rock through these covers and originals:

Hippy Hippy Shake
One After 909
Do You Love Me
Anytime At All
Start All Over Again
Plain To See
What Can I Do For You
She's So Nice
Baby Baby Come On
All I Want
Twist and Shout
My Generation

It must be noted that this is an audience recording (the
only type that exists according to the band) that, while not
of the highest audio quality, captures
the band at a magical moment in their career, and serves as
an archival testament to the power they exhibited as a live
band! You'll still be awfully
glad you snagged this little piece o' Power Pop
history!

About The Deadbeat Poets
The Deadbeat Poets were formed in Youngstown, Ohio in the summer of 2006. The band consists of veteran Ohio musicians with eclectic credentials: Frank Secich (Blue Ash, Club Wow, Stiv Bators Band), Terry Hartman (Backdoor Men, Napoleon In Rags, Terry & The Tornadoes), Pete Drivere (Infidels, Pretty Demons) and John Koury (Infidels, Slackjaw). Their debut album (which was recorded over the first few months of 2007 at Youngstown's Ampreon Recorder) is now available on Pop Detective Records in America & in Japan on Vivid Sound Records. Also, making guest appearances on the album are Bill "Cupid" Bartolin on guitar and Chris Leonardi on piano and organ.

Soon, you'll be able to sit back and relax (pop the top and set the sail) as the Deadbeat Poets take you on a timely journey. To such places.... romantic places like Beaver Falls (via Mahoningtown) you'll go. You'll travel to the exotic northside of Youngstown, Cleveland, the depths of the Atlantic Ocean, Toronto, Geneva-On-The-Lake, New York, LA, London, the far reaches of outer space, Paris, Mt. Pilot, The Bering Sea, St. Paul and of course Buffalo, NY. You'll meet fun lovin', sex-crazed aliens in "The Truth About Flying Saucers". You'll hear the tale of the legendary Ray Robinson who once roamed the dark, back-country roads of Western, PA in "The Green Man". You'll encounter semi-romantic mountain men and their passions in "Ernest T" and ride along with Stiv Bators as he once terrorized the western world in "The Stiv Bators Ghost Tour". You'll find out the connection between Ernest Hemmingway and Gertrude Stein and French bidets in "Where Was I When I Needed Me?". You'll raise glasses and bottles with the lads in "No Island Like The Mind, No Ship Like Beer" and be sadly disappointed by gangsters and thieves as "The Goody Wagon" never arrives. If floating in a psychedelic flutter is your inclination then "What Part Of Cognitive Dissonance Don't You Understand?" will probably be your cup of tea. Then again, you may find that after all of this .....well that "It's Nothing" to you. Then again, you may start getting "A Funny Little Feeling" that you will enjoy the Deadbeat Poets.
