It's good to see a band giving their fans a chance to own all of their recorded material without having to trawl around for it or paying through the nose. They may only have made 2 studio albums plus one EP to date, but in the course of their recording career Jettblack have stockpiled a cool selectiion of tracks that have only surfaced in limited form, and sometimes not at all. And the good news is that the quality of these tracks is excellent, and they occasionally feature some rather rockin' guests - take a bow Damon Johnson (Thin Lizzy / Black Star Riders) & Ian Paice (Deep Purple). So... what we have here are reworked tracks, covers, acoustic recordings and hard-to-find studio recordings, all nicely packaged and neatly contained. What's more, the band have chosen 'Black Gold' to highlight an early version of a track that will eventually feature on studio album number 3, and it's going to be quite epic, that's for sure. It's called 'Red Horizon' and I predict great things. Well done, guys... now get back into the studio and get that third album cookin'!
