Just got an email from Amazon this morning, Nektar's classic album A Tab In The Ocean is being reissued in the "Deluxe Editions" series with a bonus disc of unreleased material. The release date is 2/22.

The is the album that Crying In The Dark/King Of Twilight comes from. A must for Prog Rock fans!



Here's the Amazon page:

Great album.

Saw Nektar back in 2004. DAMN, they were heavy.

There is also a 2-CD Deluxe Edition of Remember The Future scheduled for release on Mar 15. More deluxe editions in the pipeline after that (supposedly the entire 70s catalog).

I wonder if the bonus tracks are any good? I'll sample them later on today. I've always been a pretty big fan of these guys.

The bonus tracks are excellent. It's the first official release of a 1970 recording in Boston, it's circulated around as "The Boston Tapes". Some of the songs were later re-recorded and ended up on "Sounds Like This".

Thanks for the info. I'll definitely check it out.

I've never owned "Sounds Like This" I borrowed a coworkers vinyl copy years ago. I only have "Journey to the Center of the Eye," "Tab in the Ocean" (no bonus tracks), "Remember the Future" and "Recycled."

Again, I was quite impressed when I saw them live.

I was about to buy this and saw the label is releasing the album on cdr instead of silver pressed...

They have this album at my local CD Warhouse, but I have passed it up since it's too overpriced for my po' blood. Great band though.

Well. Sorry guys, I think this one is a bootleg.

However, the band themselves issued this album several years back...and after doing a side by side comparison, this new "deluxe edition" borrows the UK mix from that issue, it's the exact same master.

They're not cheap however:

Looks like "The Boston Tapes" is also available as a twofer with Journey To The Centre Of The Eye.
