If you've been hanging around this website since our inception in 1999, then bands like Fortune and this lot; Harlan Cage will be well known to you all. Of course, Harlan Cage are the logical successor to that mighty L.A based Fortune from all those years ago. Those one-album wonders who disappeared off the face of the earth before they had time to be found! The two founding members Roger Scott Craig and L.A (Larry) Greene keeping their trademark sound alive, by forming Harlan Cage ten years later.

The Songs
The history books will show that Harlan Cage released four albums: 'Harlan Cage' from 1996, 'Double Medication Tuesday' from 1998, 'Forbidden Colors from 1999, and 'Temple Of Tears' from 2002. The first three for MTM Music, the fourth for Atenzia Records. This compilation, released on Roger Scott Craig's label Gypsy Rock Records, is an attempt to take back control of Harlan Cage's music, and to assemble a worthy compilation of tunes from those four albums, for those who have yet to hear the band, or for those who don't own any of the four albums. Not only is there a great cross-section (pity that more tracks from the excellent 'Temple Of Tears' weren't on though..), but there are three bonus tracks, including a reworking of the Fortune ballad 'Stacy'.

In Summary
It appears though that future output from Roger Scott Craig and L.A Greene is unlikely, considering the poor state of the recording industry; both are frustrated at the apathy and piracy that appears to be rife. However, good news coming up is the re-release of the long-overdue digital resurrection of that 1985 'Fortune' album; again on Craig's Gypsy Rock Records. Along with the forthcoming RPM album, re-release collectors have never had it so good. And you wanna why these goodies are being re-released? Because a majority of the current crop of artists pale by comparison.
