TORONTO, CANADA -- Klaatunes Records, the newly established indie record label for the band Klaatu, is pleased to announce that a new remastered release of their first album, Klaatu (3:47 E.S.T.) is now available on CD.
The remastering, marking the 35th anniversary of the album, was completed at The ‘E’ Room with audio restoration guru Peter J. Moore at the helm. Also in attendance were members of the band, plus the man who knows Klaatu’s music best, their original producer, Terry Brown.
“It was a magical experience,” says Terry Draper, Klaatu’s drummer who has taken on the lead role in establishing Klaatunes Records. “Now that we are in control of the Klaatu katalogue we intend to revitalize our presence and offer our new and future fans the ultimate listening experience... and this remastering is an exciting first step.”
Peter J. Moore’s credits include Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Oscar Peterson, Diana Krall, Neko Case, Bruce Cockburn, Murray MacLauchlan, Finger Eleven, Sloan, and hundreds of others. He’s won three Grammy Awards, two Genie’s, two Gemini’s and been
nominated twice for a Juno.
Klaatu (John Woloschuk, Dee Long and Terry Draper) is the Canadian progressive rock band that attempted to “let the music speak for itself” in 1976 by releasing Klaatu (3:47 E.S.T.) with all credits simply attributed to their collective identity, Klaatu. Even their label, Capitol Records in Los Angeles, didn’t know their names when the rumour they were the Beatles in disguise swept the globe.
