SAGA TO RELEASE NEW LIVE ALBUM “SO GOOD SO FAR – LIVE AT ROCK OF AGES”

2017 marked SAGA’s 40th (!) anniversary. The band that has combined hard rock, progressive rock and pop like no other celebrated their anniversary with a tour around the globe, saying thank you and farewell to the fans… for now. Now, one year later, the exciting live recording “So Good So Far – Live At Rock Of Ages” sees its release.

Featuring the most iconic of songs that SAGA has been known and loved for by fans for more than 40 years, “So Good So Far” delivers the epitome of the band’s long and proud history – all recorded at the Rock of Ages festival in Seebronn, Germany in 2017 on both audio and video. SAGA, the headliner of the evening played, an energetic 1,5 hours set in front of thousands of festival-goers, featuring the best of 21 SAGA studio albums with classics such as “On The Loose”, “Humble Stance, “Wind Him Up” or “Don’t Be Late”.

Says Michael Sadler: “SAGA has a very special history with the legendary ROCK OF AGES festival in Seebronn, Germany. Founder Horst Franz invited us to perform for the very first one in 2006!

Fast forward to 2017 – SAGA returns to the coveted Saturday night stage by special request, celebrating the band’s 40th Anniversary with our Final Chapter Tour.

This release captures the sound and atmosphere of that spectacular night with our musical family and friends that will never be repeated…or will it?”

Adds Ian Crichton: “Over the years it’s been a privilege to play to audiences in Europe, it all started in Germany!”

“So Good So Far – Live At Rock Of Ages” is going to be released as 2CD Digipak, 2LP Gatefold+download code, DVD, Blu-ray and Digital on September 28th, 2018 on earMUSIC.

ProgStock 2018 Sizzle Reel:

Lisa LaRue’s Twenty Five Year Retrospective “Origins” is now available for Pre-order

Origins is a sixteen track double album which include one hidden bonus track and celebrate’s 25 years and 11 release by LaRue.

The songs on “Origins” were written and recorded over 25 years. Some in a small recording studio in Tahlequah, OK over a year’s time with John “Yakfe” Timothy, and some in Los Angeles working extensively with John Payne as a co-producer, mixing engineer, bassist, and vocalist. Also, certain songs were known as some of the first prog projects done via internet transfer and finalizes with “Sussuration” and “Lemniscate,” completely produced and mixed by LaRue.

According to Lisa, “This album is extremely important – it’s important to me, as it represents 25 years of my life and some of the best work I’ve done with some of the best friends in the world. It’s important because it represents the unity and bringing together of many musicians, big and small, through the universal language, music. Lastly, it’s important to fans, as it represents some of the obscure work of many top-notch artists that they may not have in their collection. Melodic Revolution and Nick Katona have always been known for bringing artists together, so there is no better label to showcase this 25-year effort.”

“Lisa has a unique perspective to her music. Her Prog rock style is highly influenced by her Native American roots. The listener is drawn in by the mystical and avant-garde approach. From my point of view, it has always been a pleasure and great experience working with her music.” – John Payne

“A very atmospheric composition, with a lovely tranquil finale. I hear a lot of my father’s influence in it, a beautiful arrangement.” – Aaron Emerson (son of Keith Emerson) regarding the song “Aspiration”

Origins also features John Payne (Asia, GPS), Michael Sadler (Saga), Mitch Perry (Talas, Aerosmith), Gilli Smyth (Gong), Don Schiff (Rocket Scientist, Kracked Earth), Federico Fantacone (Orchestre Celesti) John Baker (Forever Twelve, Mars Hollow) as well as Steve Adams, Brenda K, Michael Wheeler, Merrill Hale, Svetlan Raket (Par Lindh Project), John “Yafke” Timothy, Michael Alvarez.

Origins is housed in a new style of Digipak called a Digipack Lite™ this is one of the most unique and eco-friendly packages on the market, in fact, the CD tray actually flexes and is more durable than the standard ridged plastic tray as it is made from recycled water bottles.

1) All pre-orders get shipped before the release date.
2) All Pre-orders supporters will receive a personalized thank you postcard.
3) All Pre-orders of Origins also come with 2 tracks now (streaming via the free Bandcamp app and also available as a high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more), plus the complete album the moment it’s released

All orders include a digital booklet with purchase
