Canadian Label Trend Records Inks with Fervor

Trend RecordsFervor Records is proud to announce an exclusive deal with Trend Records of Canada. A majority of the Trend catalog from the 1960s and 1970s is now available via one-stop licensing from Fervor Records. Trend was formed in 1965 by Toronto disc jockey and record producer Merv Buchanan. The forward thinking Buchanan launched the indie Trend label filling a void in the Canadian market. Mr. Buchanan states, “At the time only a few majors were active in Canada and their main activity was the pressing and distribution of records for foreign artists signed by US or international offices.” Trend coupled their recording studio and music publishing division, with pressing, promotion, and distribution providing a single solution for their Canadian roster. According to the Museum of Canadian Music, “The label is responsible for some of the most collectible Canadian music in existence… Most notably, Bent Wind’s “Sussex” album, which is considered to be the holy grail of Canadian psychedelic recordings.” In addition to Bent Wind, other Trend artists available via Fervor Records include; Sedum Shadows, Cargo, Ultimate Image, Terry & The Pyrates, Bryan Pickering, and Friday Afternoon. You can experience some of the music from Trend Records immediately on the Museum of Canadian Music website.

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!
