ARCHIVE JIVE RECORDS


<under construction>


ARCHIVE JIVE RECORDS was set up after I obtained the Marc Bolan as TOBY TYLER acetate of Dion DiMucci's The Road I'm On (Gloria) in order for fans to be able to hear the then earliest Bolan material having previously been kept in a private collection for around a decade

Amazingly not long after I had released the acetate, the ORIGINAL 1/4" tape was found!  The tape featured a considerable number of takes of Bob Dylan's 'Blowin' In The Wind' and the Dion DiMucci track, 'The Road I'm On (Gloria)'.  I joined-up with Zinc Alloy Records in Germany and Gypsy Explorer fanzine in order to obtain it

The first release from the tape was a CD EP (an Archive Jive / Gypsy Explorer / Zinc Alloy Production on Zinc Alloy Records) featuring the Master versions of these two tracks plus a working version of 'Blowin' In The Wind'

This was followed by a CD album of the entire Master Tape, using the tape box cover for the artwork (below) and a pseudo tape-spool for the disc itself
 

How sweet - Marc's stuck little pictures of himself on the tape box!
