In case you missed it yesterday, AOL’s Spinner music Web site posted a stream of the lead single and title track of Legacy’s new Jimi Hendrix vault compilation, Valleys of Neptune. Me? I dig it quite a bit. It’s a solid track, and not a patch on his greatest hits (that can sometimes be the trick with posthumous works, especially when they’re released as singles).
Journey to “Neptune”
Michael Duquette (Founder) was fascinated with catalog music ever since he discovered there was more than one version of John Williams' soundtrack to E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial. A 2009 graduate of Seton Hall University with a B.A. in journalism, Mike paired his profession with his passion through The Second Disc, one of the first sites to focus on all reissue labels great and small. His passion for reissues turned into a career, with bylines on catalog at Discogs, City Pages and Ultimate Prince and credits on titles including the Grammy-winning 'Squeeze Box: The Complete Works of "Weird Al" Yankovic.' Born and raised in New Jersey, Mike lives in Astoria, Queens with an ever-expanding collection of music.
