Christopher Blue – Happy Just To Be Alive

Christopher blueIn 1970 singer/songwriter/producer Doug Davis inked a deal with Floyd Ramsey’s Phoenix, AZ based Ramco Records. Doug’s band Christopher Blue quickly churned out their first single; “Happy Just To Be Alive” b/w “You’ve Got What I Like.” The success of their debut convinced Ramco to offer Davis his own label imprint. Dubbed “Blue Ram,” the new label issued their first release in 1971, Christopher Blue’s “It’s Not Too Late” b/w “Don’t Worry Tracy.” The label followed up in 1972 with Christopher Blue’s “I’m Gonna Let Her Know” b/w “Floating On A Cloud.” The three 45s were the only recordings from the band, and by the mid 1970s they had faded into obscurity. Enter Fervor Records, who began looking after the Ramco catalogs in 2007. Fervor has breathed new life into these classics, seriously escalating the band’s cult status. This was accomplished via numerous high profile film, television, and major motion picture soundtrack placements including; Mad Men, Vacation (film & soundtrack), The Conjuring 2, Ashby (Main Title Theme & soundtrack), Red Oaks, Hot In Cleveland, The Bridge, Carnage Park and many more. Now you can enjoy the sensational sounds of the 70s with this definitive collection of all of Christopher Blue’s recordings on the Fervor Records release: “Christopher Blue – Happy Just To Be Alive.” Experience now on AmazonApple, Spotify and beyond!

Simplistics complete 30 year journey with Fervor!

Simplistics coverFervor Records is thrilled to reissue the self-titled album by California rockers Simplistics on June 3rd, nearly 30 years to the day it was originally released. A band that is equal parts pop, punk, and surf rock embodies a sound that can only be described as California New Wave. Simplistics, playing under with the kickin’ aliases of Kris Karr (Skaie Knox), Steve St. George (Steve Schroeder), Bob Hotel (John Wardell) and Crazy Frank (Frank Servas), cut their teeth throughout the early 80s playing house parties across Orange County and San Diego – with their record winding up in heavy rotation on the legendary station 91X. Whether rocking out on the Sunset Strip or playing acoustic in-store sets in Tower Records, Simplistics made their presence known. They are a true rock n’ roll story; Skaie made balloon animals around town to pay for recording time, while Steve kept the lights on by driving limos. The band continued playing shows along the West Coast until 2000. Simplistics’ raucous, self-titled debut can be experienced all over again on iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify.
