Hey fans,

I'm back from the States, saw some supercool concerts by Yes and Foreigner and guess what Daddy brought home with him??

A vocal-less demo of GETTIN' TIGHTER by Tommy Bolin in January 1975!!

Actually, I found it at the BOBBY BERGE site (one time Bolin drummer) Here:

P.S. David & Shirean: I got the goodies from the GHPG shop!!!! Thanx a lot!

Bolin- USA

Hey Ad-

Did our common friend Bobby know you were coming to the States? If we had known- we would have encouraged a visit to Galvatraz-Houston. The Bolin Demo you spoke of- is also included in the 15 CD box set called "Fever". This is the whole archive that the "TBA's" early releases were mostly derived from. Both Bobby and I have it- sounds like we need to get it to you some time! It's a whole lot of material- I'm not even positive that I have got through it all, but I know it's got lot's of other neat surprises too.
Pretty cool.... Ritchie left Purple in April of 75.

"getting tighter" -demo

Hello Mark,
yes, it is from Fever-box. I'm at summer cottage right now and can't check this but isn't there also a song written by T.Cook - which later also appeared on CTTB? Cretited Coverdale/Cook????



The Glen Holly Studio Recordings *9.08.02*

The Tommy Bolin Archives are preparing two CD titles. These will be sourced from material obtained from the Glen Holly Studios, where Tommy Bolin worked on new songs for many months prior to recording his first solo album. After his death the tapes were kept by the studio owner and copies were not leaked, so none of this material has ever been heard before. It includes jams, as well as acoustic and electric demos. The first CD is likely to be titled 'The Glen Holly Jams', the other will be a compilation called 'Naked Vol 2'. MM#90046

Summer IS great!!!!
