    Reverend - Ultra Rare David Wayne recordings un-earthed

    Hi. 1st I wanted to say I can't get into my old profile with the same handle, so I made this one. Exciting news!! So as you can see from the heading here I bought something very, very rare recently. I have been collecting Reverend related items since 1990 and until about a week ago thought I had there entire catalog, and all the rare items that could be had. Wrong!

    I made contact with a seller over the xmas holidays, insisted he had David Wayne recordings (studio) I had never heard of, of course I was very doubtful. Since the cost was so high, I had him play some over the phone and sure enough it was David Wayne. So $$ well spent!

    It is a full Reverend album (not another EP) from 1993 of un-released material, song titles no one has ever heard mention of....until now! I have the only copy that exists and I have been in touch with the band as some members I know and they have confirmed this. All copies were on tape and they were lost.

    I decided that I will give it back to the band and not sell it or hoard it as I feel this is the right thing to, they agreed I can upload all the tracks, then everyone can enjoy them and keep the memory of David Wayne alive.

    I had one request for them, to give me some full audio live concerts in return. I think that's a fair trade. I am just waiting on those recordings to come to me, I don't think it will be long, then all the tracks will be uploaded. This material is amazing - spine tingling good.

    What I have bought myself is a small place in the bands history as they desperately want to have these recordings again, and I have brought that back to them.

    Ironically I spent Jan 1st which was David Wayne's birthday converting everything to digital from a 23 yr old cassette. For now here is a track from these sessions called "Rolling Thunda".

    That's really exciting news! Can't wait to hear it. I must admit that I was pretty clueless about his post-Metal Church output but your posts and comments have made me go back to re-visit that material. It also goaded me into a small classic USPM phase lately. Those 80's powerful singers really pushed the envelope for what a voice could do.

    From what I've heard, this is excellent. Shame it hasn't been released at the time.

    Great find, great story, and you have an excellent attitude towards it all, not holding the music hostage from everyone, especially the band. I imagine the members were pumped when they heard that the songs had surfaced? :)

    They are all excited to get it back, they thought it was gone forever. Music stored on tapes is a bad idea. Apparently my copy is the best quality they heard, came from a sony producer - that was the seller & I didn't know that. They promised a professional re-master at some point down the road. There's plans to make artwork and it doesn't have a name yet, it should be finished. I'm friends with them all now, how cool is that?? I hope this is all uploaded for you guys in the next week or so.
