FANNY’S CDs FACING EXTINCTION. HERE'S A WAY WE CAN AVOID THAT...
Rock Group Fanny negotiates to become the sole source of their four albums on CD.
TUCSON, AZ, August 27th, 2019 - When rock group Fanny first hit the music scene in 1970, no one could fathom what their future would be like. The group reached moderate success with the single “Charity Ball” cracking the Top 40, but Fanny’s true legacy was never fully realized.
That is until now.
With the release of a live video performance of Fanny posted on YouTube from the German TV program “Beat-Club”, nearly a million new fans have discovered Fanny’s music. But sadly, their albums are on the brink of no longer being available on CD.
With a heavy contribution from Fanny drummer Alice de Buhr, independent record label Real Gone Music contracted with Warner Music Group to bring the first four albums originally released on Reprise Records to CD starting back in 2012. But Real Gone Music’s stock of the albums has run out and they are not going to reproduce any additional CDs.
Starting September 4th, 2019, Alice is taking up the challenge of raising money via Indiegogo to cover the cost of replicating and licensing new CDs for fans new and old alike to enjoy Fanny’s music. As part of the arrangement, the CDs will be available only on the band’s “FannyRocks” official website.
To entice contributors, Alice is offering up a variety of rewards ranging from reproduction of classic Fanny stickers, autographed drum sticks, signed copies of the new CDs, plus limited copies of the Rhino Fanny CD pack featuring autographs of three of the four members. A big bonus is you do not have to wait as all rewards will be shipped out by Alice as the contributions are made. (See below for complete list)
