Hi all

A quick update on the Fairview compilation project!


Fairview Studios, Hull

The compilation album release date is 15 November.

The planned release event will be the Salem gig on that day at Fruit in Hull – with Soulflame – and a pretty cool after-party too \m/

As mentioned before, you probably remember that we made our first two recordings at the Fairview Studios in Willerby, Hull – the first demo in 1981 and the Reach To Eternity/Cold As Steel single in ’82.

 Many excellent artists recorded at Fairview Studios, not least Hull’s own legendary guitarist Mick Ronson and Trevor Bolder, and other rock and metal bands such as:

  • Uriah Heep
  • Def Leppard
  • Witchfynde
  • Gaskin
  • Tokyo Blade
  • Geddes Axe
  • Saracen
  • etc

Local music historian, Andy Richardson, has already worked with the owner Keith Herd to release a collection of music recorded by local artists from the 1960s and early ’70s called Frontroom Masters.

We are delighted that Andy approached us to include some our music on this compilation.

You can read more about Fairview on – and on Wikipedia where the Salem single is cited as a “notable recording”!
