New CHASTAIN "For Those Who Dare" Anniversary CD and Video!


David T. Chastain has gained a reputation over the last 35+ years as a powerful, progressive guitarist whose music has been centered around his melodic and technically fluent fretboard mastery. Besides David's virtuoso style, the other major attribute to CHASTAIN's instantly distinct sound is vocalist Leather Leone's superior and ultimately commanding presence.
Originally released in 1990 on Roadrunner Records, CHASTAIN's fifth album, For Those Who Dare, was yet further proof that David T. Chastain was not just a great player, but also a talented songwriter and band leader with an exceptional group of collaborators to help make his visions a reality. That being said, the album had been remixed by the label without the group's involvement, resulting in an overly dry, unpolished sound. To date, the original band-approved mix has never been granted an official CD release.
That all changes now, as Divebomb Records is excited to present the 30th Anniversary edition of For Those Who Dare, adhering to CHASTAIN's original intent by restoring Steve Fontano's (Prairie Sun Studios) more balanced mix-as well as additional background vocals, ad libs, and "ear candy" that have long been missing from the Roadrunner release. As usual, the disc has also been remastered by Jamie King Audio and will be packaged alongside a detailed booklet-revised and expanded from Divebomb's initial 2010 reissue to include additional photographs and a retrospective interview with David T. Chastain and Leather Leone. For the fans, by the fans!
 



  

 

 
Also just reissued on DIVEBOMB Records are the 2 CJSS Cds "World Gone Mad" and "Praise The Loud!"
 

 



 
Legendary guitarist David T. Chastain formed CJSS during the mid-'80s, bringing with him two former members-Mike Skimmerhorn (bass) and Les Sharp (drums)-of his prior outfit, Spike, alongside charismatic vocalist Russell Jinkens (formerly of Prizoner). The intention was for Chastain to focus on writing and performing his own original material in a manner true to his artistic vision.
Over 30 years after the fact, Divebomb Records is excited to present these expanded editions of World Gone Mad & Praise The Loud-for the first time ever on standalone CD! The core nine-song full-length has been bolstered by four rare demo tracks that never found their way onto a proper CJSS album. Fully remastered by Jamie King Audio, the set will be housed alongside a detailed booklet including a retrospective interview with David T. Chastain and Russell Jinkens. For the fans, by the fans!
 

 


 
"Neoclassical Compositions No. 2: Duets" is collection of compositions that were written for 2 guitars that are sometimes in counterpoint and at other times very in sync with each other. There were Acoustic Guitars and 6 & 7 string electric guitars used with no amp distortion. Music for the enhanced brain.
 

 
COMING IN OCTOBER
SGDOUBLE20!
