japan, sabs & more!

Japan are one of those groups that people seem either to love or to hate. Spin Cycle falls into the former category… always has, ever since a first sighting of the band around 1977 inspired hopes of a wholesale glam rock revival. Which, in truth, Japan themselves swiftly disavowed. But Quiet Life, their 1979 third album, quite possibly remains the dusty old genre’s final glorious fling, at the same time as signposting the directions in which Japan were set to move. You can hear ambition straining its sinews, not only in their own material, but also across their cover of the Velvets’ “All Tomorrow’s Parties,” probing electronics and keyboards echoing out around a building beat and defying any chance of recognition until finally, almost a minute in, David Sylvian gives the…

Goldminereaders should know record collector Stanley Panenka. Since the 1980s he has become one of the biggest Beatles vinyl collectors around. But in the last few years, Panenka has decided to sell parts of his collection, including the above “Factory Sealed Numbered 1 Beatles White Album.” Panenka calls this copy the only one of its kind. At the beginning of the year, Goldmineasked its readers to send in the rarest items in their collection. Of course all were outdone when Panenka once again displayed his White Album on us. To show off your rarity in Readers Rarities, send in a photo(s) and description to goldminemagazine@aimmedia.com, with the subject title “Reader Rarities.” Incidentally, Panenka has teamed up with auctioneer Gottahaverockandroll.com to auction off this collector’s gem in the upcoming April 2021 “Rock &…

STOCK 10 Add this to the growing list of stores that could bankrupt me if I’m left alone in the store too long. You will find new and used records, cassettes, CDs, DVDs, posters, band shirts, record supplies, stereo equipment and a nice selection of store swag. STAFF 10 I had the pleasure of getting the grand tour from the owner, Terry. All owners should be like Terry. He is everything that is good and aspirational for a store owner. He is passionate about his store and takes a lot of pride in every aspect of operations. The store has a staff of 35 employees. SOCIAL MEDIA 9 The store has an active Twitter and LinkedIn account that is not only utilized to promote new releases but to show live performances. The stores website seems…

post-boston barry goudreau

BARRY GOUDREAU reached the Top 40 five times in the 1970s, as a guitarist in the band Boston, with “More Than a Feeling,” “Long Time,” “Peace of Mind,” “Don’t Look Back,” and “A Man I’ll Never Be” from the Massachusetts quintet’s first two albums, and was very entertaining on stage, exchanging twin guitar parts with the group’s leader Tom Scholz. Goudreau told Goldmine, “At the end of the fall of 1979 tour, Tom got us together and said that he wasn’t going to do any writing or recording for a year and said that if we wanted to do a solo project, now would be the time to do it, so I decided that I would do a solo album. Brad Delp and I started doing some writing, got a…
