Thumbs down New Phenomena Digi-pac

Hello,

Just to let you know that the new Phenomena digi-pac 3 disc set

has nothing to do with Tom Galley. It is being put out by a little

Weasle called Mervyn Spence who still has rights to the name.

The new tracks will be his and will have nothing to do with the

real Phenomena by Tom Galley. The bonus tracks will probably

be bogus as well. I asked Tom In an e-mail a week or so ago

and he told me he and Mel do not get any money from it.

He is trying to do his own box set soon.

Thanks,

galleyfan

Yeah, i meant to post this info when it was announced.

The 3 "new" bonus tracks have nothing whatsoever to do with the original concept.
The way the whole thing has been done is very underhand indeed.

It is listed as release date December 4th here.

Beese, the vinyl Phenomena albums are often on Ebay. But cd copies seem to be harder to find for some reason.

Whether Tom becomes able to release this stuff separately under his own supervision i really dont know so you may just have to buy it. When i spoke to him on his birthday he said that legal wrangles had been going on for years but he was hoping to sort it out. Then this happens. It's all been sneakily done behind Tom's back.

Its been remastered so it might be better to get this than an original.

Also, i should have put in my previous post that its the 3 "new" songs that have nothing to do with Tom or the original stuff.

Tom was hoping to put the video with John Wetton singing Did It All for Love out on the box set if he released it. That isnt mentioned on Escape Music website so dont know about that.

I'll see if i can find out more this end - or maybe Scott will beat me to it.

Icon49 Thanks for this information..........

I have 1, 2, and 3:
Phenomena
Dream Runner
and Psycho Fantasy.
(All with the Glenn Hughes contributions.)

So, according to your information, we shouldn't buy anything
else until we get the word from Mel and Tom Galley, right?

PS......How does somebody not connected with this project,
get to sell these fake versions? Isn't that called stealing?

Mervyn Spence was a short time member of Trapeze and then an even shorter time member of Wishbone Ash. I think I remember that he started up a label or publishing company of his own in the early 90's and he was able to acquire the rights to some material from liquidated record companies (i.e. Bronze, Legacy, etc).

I believe the 2 original Phenomena albums were released on Bronze? If so, label boss Gerry Bron must have sold the licensing to Legacy during bankruptcy proceedings, Legacy then went under themselves and must have sold what they had to others (Spence's company Escape and also to Sanctuary/Castle, etc).

What a mess...

just to let you know, Beese - and everybody else -
- there's a copy each up on eBay at the moment, and yes, they're CDs:

1st Album (1993 Castle Reissue), HERE.

and the ultra rare original CD pressing of "Dream Runner" HERE.

Happy Bidding and Good Look!

Christian
