New Godfather, Tarantura, Beano and Shades releases...
22 Jun 2011

...A powerful pack of titles to introduce this week but first off, we certainly mourn the loss of CLARENCE CLEMONS of SPRINGSTEEN'S E STREET BAND this past weekend.  He was iconic, distinctive, the bookend, the brother, the soul and underscored the signature sound of the ESB, truly a sad occurrence and loss.

Have a good one!
