(reissues of ‘London Daze’ and’Hollywood Ghosts’ are also included in the deal). “We are extremely proudto be affiliated with a band like Spiders & Snakes. Lizzie Grey is one ofthe true unsung Godfathers of Modern Hard Rock, and an incredible talent,as well as a true inspiration as one of those rare people who TRULY makesmusic because he loves to.” said CPR President Thom Hazaert. “And whileit’s a little left field of the usual CPR release(s), S&S has made a 15year career out of releasing brilliant, pure records, solely for the loveof their craft, and it’s definitely an honor to be a part of that.”
