Good news via Artist Shop specialist music website <http://www.artist- shop.com/ wounded> (Oh Yeah! long been n my top 10 all time jazz rock fusion albums and the last of my essential 110 LPs, I listed in 1987(!!!) as must get on CD).

Coming soon from Wounded Bird
Jan Hammer/Oh, Yeah?
Jan Hammer & Jerry Goodman/Like Children
First time worldwide CD release for this 1976 Jazz Fusion album by
keyboardist/ songwriter Jan Hammer. Featuring musical assistance from bassist
Fernando Saunders, drummer Tony Smith and violinist/guitarist Steve Kindler.
The album reached #22 on the Billboard Jazz Album charts. Also available by
Jan Hammer on Wounded Bird: first time on CD for Like Children (with Jerry
Goodman). First time on CD for this collaboration album by the two former
members of Mahavishnu Orchestra, keyboardist Jan Hammer and
guitarist/violinist Jerry Goodman. Features 10 tracks including 'Country And
Eastern Music', an apt title that truly describes the musical feel of the
album. Take note, our two most requested CD reissues have been these two Jan
Hammer albums!

Robben Ford/The Inside Story
Reissue of this 1979 album, originally on Elektra Records, by the
multi-talented Jazz/Blues guitarist Robben Ford, a founding member of the
Yellowjackets as well as sideman to such legends as Tom Scott, Miles Davis,
Jimmy Witherspoon and Sadao Watanabe amongst others.

Available now from Wounded Bird

Alphonso Johnson is regarded as one of the foremost jazz bassists in the
business. His stint with Weather Report really put him on the map. In the
70's, he recorded three outstanding albums for Columbia Records. Yesterday's
Dreams was issued in 1976 and features Grover Washington Jr., Lee Ritenour,
Ernie Watts, Patrice Rushen, Philip Bailey, Diane Reeves & Sheila E.
