    "Hey bud...Check it out! Click on that little pic to get a better look at what I'm offerin'. In addition to a bunch of intangible music files, get yourself a real artifact, a genuine compact disc to hold and admire. Try parking a glass of cold rheingold on a flac file. Look at that ring it leaves on your tabletop. You leave that there till next morning and that ain't goin' away.
    :(
    So to ensure maximum carbon footprint and tabletop protection, the CD comes in a non-degradable jewel case with artwork printed with high-VOC inks. Breathe it in...hold...and exhale... Oh yeah, feel that buzz? That's what I'm talking about! Now play the album."

  • "Check this one out, too! I mean really check it out. The ultimate package for the ultimate fan. You get the non-biodegradable compact disc in a jewel case. You get the full album download. You get a swell 11x17 inch unframed poster, with graphics even more terrifying than the album cover, personally signed by the Devils.
    Wow! Unframed!
    And how about this last little kicker...you get top secret access to extended liner notes, which feature an illustrated essay entitled "The Making of Homage." Yes indeed, you gearheads, musicians, producers, and curiosity-seekers can read about how each of these fabulous tracks were created. Real insider stuff! Written by Komitas Smithee himself, the legendary talent, greatly admired creator of musical wizardry, and extraordinarily gifted gasbag. So fascinating you will not fall asleep until your normal bedtime."

About the Album
..
Welcome! The first album release by the newly-formed Party of Devils, entitled "Homage", features incredible new versions of songs from the period 1967-1977 from The Rolling Stones, Neil Young, and others. These are songs that mean a lot to band members MG and Komitas Smithee. And they will to you, too, even if you weren't born yet. Trust me on that.
..
You will hear a brand new interpretation of The Rolling Stones' iconic "Sympathy for the Devil" (1968).
..
There is a powerful take on David Bowie's incredible track "Heroes" (1977).
..
Neil Young's "After the Gold Rush" (1970) is perhaps his most exquisite song. Listen to the Devils' delicate interpretation.
..
Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit" (1967) is another iconic track, an emblem of the brief and gentle psychedelic period leading up to the summer months of 1967, soon to end.
..
You may be familiar with another piece of psychedelia of the period, courtesy of the Chambers Brothers, called "Time Has Come Today" (1967). This is a mind-blower best played in a dark room with black light and swirly fluorescent posters.
..
Two Bad Company songs, the acoustic number "Sea Gull", and the soulful "Don't Let Me Down", are lesser-known songs from their self-titled debut album, Bad Company (1974).
..
The album is rounded out by an intriguing new instrumental called "Ride", written just for us.
..
Check it all out, and take the ride!
