Bullett, for the most part, came out of Missouri and landed in Boulder, by way of Gainesville, FL, and Colorado Springs. They were a popular and regular fixture in Boulder during the Boulder music boom of the mid 70s to early 80s. They had 65 original rock songs in their complete set list when frontman Dave Small and their then manager, Robert Wolff, relocated to LA for one last shot at 'The Deal'. Enjoy their original blend of different rock styles influenced by the 'Colorado Sound' so prevalent in Boulder. It is definitely a piece of Boulder history reflecting the 70s boom time. By the time Dave Small had graduated High School, he had written over one thousand songs. By the time Bullett came together, he was approaching fifteen hundred. To say he was (and is) prolific is an understatement! By the time the band broke up around 1981, they had a live set list of sixty five original tunes. All except two were Dave's. He has continued that tradition today, as reflected in his solo album series, SmallSongs... This is a retrospective of 12 of the most popular Bullett songs that were recorded during the 70s and early 80s, some by the core group that was together for many years, and some by Dave Small, Richie Michalik (lead guitar), and L.A. or Boulder session players. They want this CD to be a reflection of Dave's vision, their experiences and relationships, as well as the guitar-based rock album that ran up against disco and punk. In fact, several of the songs were cut for record companies. Right place, wrong time, wrong deal. Almost 30 years later, it is the right time and the internet is the right place. This will be a valuable CD in Dave Small's fans' collections, as it shows his roots and the origin of the evolution of his current writing and recording. You will find Dave's usual collection of varied songs, from hard rock to ballads to country rock, and Richie's wonderful instrumental. This source material was, in some cases, over 30 years old and not the best; in some cases, cassettes. The sound quality will vary, but we are very pleased with the results, and a good song is a good song, regardless. Heart and Soul is the oldest and the most damaged, but turned out very well. Even if we could have found, restored, and remixed the original 24-track tapes, we kind of like that this is how they were mixed then and originally sounded, reflecting the times and technology.
