On Record Store Day (April 18), Rounder Records offered a remaster of the first mix of the debut album by George Thorogood on blue vinyl. The first mix was a three-piece band, then known as George Thorogood and The Delaware Destroyers before being truncated to just The Destroyers for the remixed official release back in 1977. Not long after the tracks were recorded, the band invited bassist, Bill Blough into the fold. His contributions were so good that the band remixed the debut with Blough’s new bass track incorporated.
On June 16, Rounder Records will release a CD version of the remixed Record Store Day vinyl release. This first-take issue will also include the rare bonus track from the original sessions, “Goodbye Baby”, not included on the eventual release of the official debut issue.
