Birmingham Sunday - Prevalent Visionaries: The History of Birmingham Sunday
This is my description text 1. It can support html.

 

Featuring 46 tracks, this band-authorized collection is the definitive word on the legendary Carson City, Nevada band Birmingham Sunday. Formed in 1966, Birmingham Sunday signed to Bill Holmes' All-American label and recorded their only album "A Message From Birmingham Sunday" in December 1968. Paul Buff was the engineer for these Original Sound Recording Studios sessions. The album included the single "Prevalent Visionaries"/ "Egocentric Solitude," which was a Top 10 radio favorite on stations such as KCBN in Reno, Nevada. Original copies of the All-American LP have recently sold for more than $1,200! Thanks to some recent tape discoveries, Birmingham Sunday's entire recorded output can now be yours!
 
The "Prevalent Visionaries" collection features:
 
The entire All-American album "A Message From Birmingham Sunday" remastered in brilliant sound
Unreleased alternate mixes of album tracks
Single mixes of "Prevalent Visionaries" and "Egocentric Solitude"
"Studio 'A'" with The Buff Organization
The Freedom Five's "It's Gotta Be Grant" from 1966 (featuring lead vocalist Joe LaChew)
"Movin'" by the second Birmingham Sunday lineup
 
Reunion recordings by all the surviving original members – in fact, they've done so many that they ended up creating the second album ("It Is What It Was") that they never got to originally!
 
AND MOST IMPORTANT…
All 14 pre-album demos from 1968 – none of which have been heard before! Fascinating early versions of nearly all of their All-American album debut in this collection.
