I received a press release a few days ago from Joe & Darlene Lacey (of the awesome sites: Maiden Wine - The Ultimate Leonard Nimoy Music Site and The Candy Wrapper Museum):
"One of the great pleasures in life for music lovers is not so much to find a great recording, but to have a great recording find you. We first heard "Two Sides of the Trilogy" through a vinyl sharing site(*). The album was rare: it was a souvenir made to be sold at the Trilogy's South Florida shows in 1973, and only 500 copies were pressed.
Intrigued by its high level of musicianship and the charisma of its three members, Kurt, Lori, and Ike, we decided to create a tribute site to the album and the band. We contacted Kurt and Ike and they turned out to be two great guys: they collaborated with us to make an awesome website, and personally digitally re-mastered the album to CD with all new artwork and liner notes.
Sadly, Lori, Kurt's wife and lead singer, passed away a few years ago. The memory of her, however, lives on in her music, which is beautifully restored for this release.
Be sure to check out the Trilogy's site for samples of their cool lounge music, two free downloads, stories about the band, the 70s South Florida music scene and lots of groovy photos! And don't forget to order a copy of this collectable CD!"
Check it out!!
(*) Note from mrdnatefontana: Maybe Joe and Darlene, just like I did, found this precious gem through my fellow Swede Magnus' wonderful site Bellybongoback in 2004 (now since long closed)?
