Honey West — Bad Old World

Bad Old World - Limited Edition Vinyl

A British rock titan and an acclaimed member of New York’s acting community walk into a recording studio … and produce one of 2017’s strongest and most compelling albums.This odd couple consists of multi-instrumentalist Ian McDonald, a founding member of both King Crimson and Foreigner, and guitarist and lead vocalist Ted Zurkowski, co-founder of New York’s celebrated Shakespeare ensemble, Frog & Peach, and a long-time member of the world-famous Actors Studio.

Together, this unlikely new songwriting team conjured the album Bad Old World under the banner of their quartet, HONEY WEST.

Bad Old World is filled with memorable melodies and clever and sophisticated lyrics served on a bed of guitar-driven rock ‘n’ roll played by top-shelf musicians, including drummer Steve Holley, whose credits include Paul McCartney & Wings and many others, and McDonald’s son, Maxwell McDonald, on bass. The album also boasts a guest appearance by Graham Maby (Joe Jackson, They Might Be Giants) on bass (“Brand New Car,” “California,” “A Girl Called Life”). While it’s a modern sound stamped by Ian McDonald’s world-class musicianship and production, it also bears an instant familiarity, thanks to a sonic blueprint recalling such Brit-rock titans as The Move and Mott the Hoople.

Available as a limited edition, collectors’ release of the debut album from Honey West (Readout Records), featuring 12 newly-remastered versions of the original tracks on 180 gram audiophile vinyl, with band signatures, as well as liner and production notes from Ian McDonald.

Happy Holidays!

Wow, what a year 2015 has been.  Thank you to all customers, suppliers, and fans of vinyl for your support and patience throughout the year.  It’s been quite an eventful year — new vinyl colors, additional pressing capacity added, monthly pressing quantity records broken (twice), Generation Wax, and new faces joining the Gotta Groovie team and extended family.

We look forward to working with customers new and old in 2016 as we continue to expand our operation.  In the very near term, we will be doubling our record plating capabilities.  We hope that this will help to output test pressings in a faster manner next year, and it will also increase our flexibility when things go wrong with stampers while pressing.  We also anxiously await the launch of our very own new record pressing machine — the GrooveBuilt record press.  Stay tuned for new updates!

Check out our 2015 Holiday Specials here.   And, just for fun, check out our annual list of Employee Record Picks here.

Happy Holidays from all of the Gotta Groovies!
