Los Angeles, CA–June 20, 2005- Davie Allan & The Arrows rewrote the music history books in the 60s creating unique and exciting instrumental rock that made its way into many films. Allan has the distinct honor of being the progenitor of biker rock and opening more doors for musicians to market their music.
Sundazed Records has given the Allan legacy its due with a series of reissues. The critically acclaimed albums are Apache ’65, Blues Theme, and Cycle Delic Sounds, and they all get the remastered treatment. Each individual CD is accompanied with a booklet detailing each recording session with candor and archived photos.
