Yep, absolutely confirmed by Russ De Salvo that they are two entirely different guys.

Marc Phillips and Tommy Calton both have websites with some great Hotel info and Marc recently started up a Hotel FB page following the Fireworks featur that allowed us to kick this all off with the long awaited releases on CD of the albums.


Super!

Dave do you recall exactly which issue (no. and/or month or at least who was on the cover......) featured your piece on Hotel? thx

Hey Dave has Rock Candy ever mentioned doing the classic MOXY albums...I have Unidisc versions but I think they'd make great Rock Candy reissues...The Hunt albums would be cool also.

Hotel & Shelter being released for the first time is really sensational. For that I fell in love with RC in the first place! I'm betting my life that both of these will sell a WHOLE lot better than that NUTZ stuff...

Of course over the moon that these are done by RC (I lost hope...) but I'd be really curious to know the real figures two very unknown and commercial failures at the time can sell each in 2018...500 copies each? 1000? what do you realistically think?hmm!

Rostoned, that's a good question. I think, that these obscure aor/pomp albums probably sell better these days than they did back then. Don't forget that they are now available pretty easily worldwide for the first time. And based on opinions from the internet there's a pretty solid aor fanbase around, that will pick this classic stuff in a second.

One example: I've been to a concert of Claudia Simonetti's Goblin in Hamburg last week. It's an italian prog band from the 70s specialised an horror soundtracks - Dawn of the dead being the most famous. Simonetti told me after the show that they are selling way more albums now due to numerous reissues and worldwide distribution. Internet is definitely a good thing for obscure stuff!

But you're right: It would be really interesting to know Rock candys biggest and worst sellers. The only thing I read somewhere was that the Roadmaster cd sold very good.

Speaking with Derek many moons ago (2010) back then if I remember correctly he told me Riot Narita was one of the strongest sellers of the label up to that point, I could be wrong after all this time but probably he mentioned about 5k copies sold in 5 years since it was first released? hmm!

Very good news from RC !!
