That's too bad. This album deserves a reissue, in whatever form that might be.
I would find the email of the bass player who, as he said, have the master tapes. But he is not easy to deal with!!jnfernal wrote: ↑Fri Feb 01, 2019 12:18 pmI got in touch with Bledar Sejko the guitarist because he speaks a perfect italian (he lives in Milan) and he is a really nice and educated guy. No, he told me that any amount of pressing is fine, he was just surprised that so many eople are interested in that album
But - as I said - the masters are lost along with the original producer, somewhere in the USA and he lost hopes to find them someday....
And he doesn't even have a decent tape where to rip the sound off as the only copy he has left has been used more and more and more times to make copies to friend.
Personally I have been to Albania 2 times and I stayed quite a long time but I never found anybody who may have the tape. I am going there again on the way back fron my travel and see if at the Albanian TV/Radio station they may have a copy but I see it difficult, very difficult, even because the album was recorded in Macedonia and not in Albania
At the moment there is no solution...but believe me that te guyitarist Bledar Sejko is the best guy to deal with, in case we can find a decent source to use
Actually Thuder Way, the early 80's/90's recordings of Ayasiin Salkhi (Mongolia), the first tape album of Feedback from Mauritius and the live tape of Scarecrew from Iraq are my top priorities to start a label for exotic metal reissues from unknown scenes...but for a reason or the other none of them can be released, due to missing masters, uninterest by the bands or simply impossibility to find an agreement....
By the way...speaking of albanian scene....the group Centaur confirmed me that during springtime they will release the new CD reunion album with Tiziano of Etrusgrave on vocals and they are thinking abot a reissue of the first tape somehow (the second album listed on M-A was recorded but never released phisically)
