The Truants

The Truants formed in Jackson, Ohio in 1964. As young teenagers, they played high school parties, teen dances, Jr. /Sr. proms, supermarket openings, fashion shows, community events and festivals. Like many fledgling garage bands of the day, they copied what they heard on the radio: The Kingsmen, The Rolling Stones, Johnny Rivers, and The Ventures, country music, folk music and R&B. After their appearance on the TV program, Let's Dance in Huntington, WV they quickly became one of the most popular bands playing in the 1960's. This CD is an opportunity for you to relive the good old days of that fabulous era of music that was the 1960's

Neil Young - "Let's Impeach the President"

Neil Young's 1989 anthem "Rockin' in the Free World" was scathingly critical of the social policies of then-president George Bush. Now the rock icon has found himself a new target: Bush's son. In a ticker on his official Website, Young has announced plans to release Living With War, a anti-war album addressing the conflict in Iraq which he recorded earlier this month in three short days. The album, being distributed by Warner/Reprise, takes sharp aim at the administration of President George W. Bush with the scathing tune, "Let's Impeach the President."

Stony Plain Records celebrates 30 years

Industry folk - along with Macleans magazine - call Holger Petersen's record label "the best small label in North America." It's the kind of plaudit that makes Petersen blush. The fact is, says Petersen, without financial whiz Alvin Jahns, Stony Plain Records would've folded up tent a long time ago, joining the dozens of blues labels that started with intent of supporting the genre, and not the bottom line. "Alvin never gets the credit that he should," says Petersen of his partner and financial officer. "But the reality is, we could've sunk several times without his financial leadership." Instead, Stony Plain is celebrating its 30th anniversary with a star-studded compilation that includes roots, blues and a DVD
