Omega Music

The most comprehensive archive of Silverhead's brief but shining time in the spotlight. Featuring their two excellent albums plus bonus tracks. And, including the hard to find 'Show Me Everything' and a host of other live recordings. In 1971, Deep Purple's management set up Purple Records, not just to release Purple's own releases, but also the various side projects the band members were developing, and artists that they respected. Along with early albums by artists as diverse as Ronnie James Dio and Yvonne Elliman, Purple Records tenth release was from a new band called Silverhead who featured future Blondie bassist Nigel Harrison, future Robert Plant guitarist Robbie Blunt, and legendary front man Michael Des Barres. Their much-feted self-titled debut was released in 1972. That self-titled debut 'Silverhead' (CD1) was produced by Martin Birch, famed for him work with Iron Maiden, Whitesnake, Black Sabbath, Rainbow, and of course, Deep Purple. A heady mixture of hard rock, glam rock and of proto-punk, this edition also includes 7" single versions of 'Ace Supreme' and 'Rolling With My Baby', plus 'Oh No No No' (the B-Side of 'Ace Supreme'). Silverhead's second album for Purple Records, '16 And Savaged' (CD2), kicked off with 'Hello New York' plus 'More Than Your Mouth Can Hold', and now features the debut solo 45 from Michael Des Barres, 'Leon' b/w 'New Moon Tonight'. Most exciting is the inclusion of 'James Dean' and 'Marilyn', two tracks from the shelved, third Silverhead LP. When Silverhead supported Nazareth at London's famed Rainbow Theatre on November 9th, 1973, they didn't even know that they were being recorded, which no doubt added to the spontaneous mood on 'Live At The rainbow, London' (CD3). Released in Japan in 1975, by which time the band had sadly disbanded, it features the best songs from their two albums, plus 'James Dean' from what would have been their third. This release also includes the band's In Concert recording at the BBC's Paris Theatre on August 31st, 1973. This six CD set is the most comprehensive archive of Silverhead's brief but shining time in the spotlight, and now includes the rare and hard to find 'Show Me Everything' (CD4), featuring tracks recorded at London's Alexandra Palace on 29th July 1973, as well as the self-explanatory 'Berlin Backlash' (07/02/1973) (CD5) and finishes off with 'Live In Japan' (19/01/1974) (CD6).
