Sleep with you gets makeover in next pressing

R.I.P. Sleep with you. In for its third pressing, the CD will feature the same front and back cover, but the booklet will change dramatically to make it more “retail/radio friendly.” The song order will also change. If you are one of the lucky owners of the original first two pressings of the Sleep with you CD hang onto it. If you are not and want to own the original, online stores are sold out of it and are now stocking the new version, but many retail stores still have stock of the original.

SLEEP WITH YOU to be released July 1st and Broken Spectacles compilation coming soon

The good news is that the brand new album by Ed Hale and the Transcendence entitled Sleep With You is wrapping up and should be out by late March. As soon as final mixes are available we promise to post one or two tasty morsels for your listening enjoyment here. We are very eager to get your feedback as to which song should be the band’s first single for the new album. So stay tuned.

But for those long time fans and friends there is perhaps even bigger news and a little something to tide you over until then. TMG Records has been working on a compilation of Ed’s work with his first band, the miserably unsuccessful but popular rock group Broken Spectacles. The CD version is not out yet but all of the songs are now available for streaming or for download HERE until the collection hits the streets.

The collection of 55+ songs from this period took three years to compile and is now being prepared for a 3CD compilation called Spectacularly Broken: 1988—1994. There will be no singles released or promoted to radio and a very limited number of albums will be issued of this mammoth bit of self-indulgence.

Highlights include old favorites like “Cawood,” “21 and 17,” “Brother John,” and “Nature boy,” as well as many never before released demo-versions of tracks like “the devil loves rock and roll,” “Alison street,” “my old man,” and “afraid to get in.” It is a very open and honest albeit quirky collection of material indeed, leaving no stone unturned, certainly not for the casual listener.

The compilation also includes several snippets of the Specs being interviewed on various radio shows through the years. And numerous segments of Ed rambling incoherently about matters purely irrelevant into his cassette recorder diaries of the time. An absolute feast for fans and assuredly a nightmare for everyone else. Check out some of the songs and enjoy. We’ll let you know as soon as the album is ready for release. Until then, keep on Transcending!
