One of the most energetic bands in the business, The Fleshtones will celebrate their 40th anniversary with the release of their 21st album, The Band Drinks For Free. Featuring 12 songs about love, deceit, and death in classic Fleshtones style, the album carelessly (to the purists) tosses together the fuzz-guitar and Farfisa organ riffs of so-called "garage rock" with rockabilly, soul, and surf. And, yes, the band still drinks for free. Dubbed "America's Garage Rock Band" and "The Kings Of Garage Rock," The Fleshtones have been the subject of books (Sweat by Joe Bonomo, Continuum Press 2007) and movies (Pardon Us For Living But The Graveyard's Full, 2009) as well as amazement from fans and detractors alike. The Fleshtones are well into their fifth decade of making believers out of the most jaded naysayers with their mongrel stew known as "Super Rock."
This is the most comprehensive collection of the rockabilly era that was ever assembed in one box. On these 40CDs there are 1000 carefully chosen songs. A booklet is also included with information, biographies and many rare illustrations.
Produced by Ken, "Trouble” is not only his third record fronting the band Live Fire, but now one of over 50 albums Ken Hensley has recorded or featured on!
Live Risen Sun is a live album by the English-American progressive rock band Asia Featuring John Payne. It is the first release to use the name Asia featuring John Payne, a spinoff featuring the longtime Asia frontman formed after Downes's return to the original lineup. This is the last live recording with the pair before their split in early 2006.

This project was recorded during our short tour of Germany and Switzerland in late 2012. These were the last live shows for this particular incarnation of Live Fire, so it's cool that we got this piece of our collective and individual musical history recorded! It was a lot of work and a lot of fun. I hope you enjoy it… Ken
