*** The definitive reissues of VALENTINO’S PIRATES, now available on vinyl for the first time since its original release and also as a double CD set featuring the complete 13-song album, plus a 22-track “Naked Pirates” bonus disc.

*** "One of the most accomplished pop albums of the 20th Century's final two decades... Valentino's Pirates is a lost – or, perhaps more accurately, unknown – masterpiece of the genre and era, filled with epiphanies both large and small." (Stanton Swihart - AllMusic)

A long story short: In 1989 recording begins at Daniel Lanois’ Grant Avenue Studio for what will become VALENTINO’S PIRATES, under the supervision of producer Gary Pig Gold. Shortly after, DAVE RAVE leaves Canadian proto-punkpoppers Teenage Head and settles in New York City with Gary, where the album was completed and a band, known as The Dave Rave Conspiracy, was formed alongside Billy Ficca of Television and Lauren Agnelli to perform the songs live. Initially, Valentino’s Pirates received a limited, cassette-only release in Canada on the Mole Sound label. Eventually though, through a connection with the mysterious Rudolf Solovyov (owner of the Kismet company in New York), Dave Rave became the first Western artist signed directly to the Russian Melodiya label and the album (reduced to 10 songs, due to timing constraints, plus the Dave Rave Conspiracy renamed the Dave Rave Group to appease wary Soviet sensibilities) was released in the until-recently U.S.S.R. circa very early 1992.

Cue to today, 30 years since recording for the album took place, Hanky Panky Records is proud to release the first-ever vinyl reissue of Valentino’s Pirates as the 10-song original Russian pressing, and as a deluxe double CD set with the complete 13 song album, plus a “Naked Pirates” 22 track collection of demos, alternate mixes and unused tunes, most of which are previously unreleased.

Valentino’s Pirates features the talents of Jon Tiven, Bill Dillon, Malcolm Burn, Shane Faubert, Lane Steinberg, Coyote Shivers, Rick Miles, Cindy Beattie, James “Doc” Proctor, and Jack Pedler.

*** Reedición definitiva de VALENTINO’S PIRATES, disponible en vinilo por primera vez desde su edición original (con encarte y libreto de 8 páginas) y en doble CD con las 13 temas originales, y “Naked Pirates” un disco adicional con 22 canciones.

*** "Uno de los más perfectos discos de las dos últimas décadas del Siglo XX…. Valentino's Pirates es una perdida o, mejor dicho, desconocida obra maestra de su género y época, llena de grandes y pequeñas epifanías." (Stanton Swihart - AllMusic)

La version abreviada de esta historia se podría leer así: En 1989 las sesiones de grabación de lo que será VALENTINO’S PIRATES dan comienzo en los estudios Grant Avenue de Daniel Lanois, bajo la supervision del productor Gary Pig Gold. Poco después, DAVE RAVE abandona a los proto-punkpoppers canadienses Teenage Head y se instala en Nueva York con Gary, donde completan el álbum y forman The Dave Rave Conspiracy, junto a Billy Ficca (Television) y Lauren Agnelli, para poder tocar en directo. En un primer momento, el sello Mole Sound publica Valentino’s Pirates en Canada en formato cassette de edición limitada. Más tarde, sin embargo, a través de una conexión con el misterioso Rudolf Solovyov (dueño del sello Kismet en New York), Dave Rave se convierte en el primer artista Occidental en firmar un contrato directamente con el sello Ruso Melodiya y el álbum (reducido a 10 canciones, por cuestiones de minutaje, y The Dave Rave Conspiracy rebautizados como Dave Rave Group para apaciguar sensibilidades soviéticas) fue publicado en la ya extinta U.R.S.S. a comienzos de 1992.

Y así llegamos hasta el día de hoy, 30 años desde la grabación del disco, Hanky Panky Records se enorgullece en reeditar en vinilo por primera vez las 10 canciones que conformaban la edición rusa original de Valentino’s Pirates. Además, se publica también en versión doble CD con las 13 canciones originales, y “Naked Pirates” una colección de 22 canciones que incluyen demos, mezclas alternativas y temas desechados, en su mayoría completamente inéditas.
