SURIANO, GREGG - Peace Of The Rock

"It all started for Gregg Suriano when he began writing songs in his early teens and people quickly took notice in his home town. It soon progressed beyond his local area and in 1974 he began performing his tunes in churches and piano clubs across Long Island, Manhattan and the tri-state area. His local following continued to grow and artists began to use his material in live shows and recordings. By 1977, he had won his place among the best with his song "Play The Game" at the American Songwriter's Contest. He finally decided to record his first album entitled Peace Of The Rock, released in 1978 on the Behold Record label. Christian contemporary radio stations began playing "The Last Days" and "Where Do You Stand." The coffee house venues were picking up on his music and he was often invited as a guest artist every Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday on Long Island and as far away as Dubuque, Iowa. Once again in 1980, Gregg was a winner at the American Song Festival with his song, "Some Kind Of Loneliness" (which ended up on his next LP). He was then noticed by the legendary songwriter Burt Bacharach who was so impressed, that he had Suriano play piano at his restaurant every Friday night. Gregg began working with notable artists such as Kathy Triccoli, Magaret Becker, and a host of others who went onto become well-known in the CCM market. Gregg opened up for such artists as BJ Thomas and Glad. In 1983, Suriano released his second album, Single Minded Man. Songs such as the title cut climbed to #3 on the Christian radio station WLIX from the Long Island, New York area. Yacht-rockish, with funky basslines and key stabs, some congas occasionally and PLENTY of excessive sax. Dig the track "The Last Days," which includes prescient and oddly upbeat-sounding lyrics about The End Times. Includes three bonus tracks." - Riverman Music .

After nearly a decade of false starts, multiple game plans veering off the rails, and a handful of shattered hopes and/or dreams, the odyssey is finally complete—the new Fusetron site is here.

This is the first phase of a multipart rollout that will span the next few months: the currently browsable stock includes miscellaneous new releases from the past 8+ months (we have a lot of catching up to do), plus approximately a third of our backstock. Note that we’ve reduced/slashed prices on many titles and will continue to do so in order to make room for new stock. We’ll also be expanding / tweaking / improving / debugging the site itself (for example, we still have work to do on the automated international postage system, not to mention the inevitable inventory discrepancies that come with transferring an ancient and massive database to a new system).

Over the next few months, as we take inventory, clean house, and delve into our storage, we will be uploading thousands of additional items, gradually, on a near-daily basis. This will include the majority of the LPs, as well as many titles, in all formats, once thought long-gone. Many currently “sold out” items are likely to resurface.

Finally, once our general backstock is up (probably in the next two or three months) we’ll begin making our extensive stockpile of rarities available online for the first time: tons of random out-of-print titles, "deadstock," warehouse finds, secondhand collectibles, etc., accumulated over the past few decades.

Frequent/returning customers will be getting early access to these items. Details to follow on how this will work (a priority mailing list? a 'frequent flyer'-like program?), but it will not be based on dollars spent. We want to reward those who consistently support us, especially in the discogs marketplace era (to those who show up trying to poach five copies of a one-off rarity, and nothing else, ever… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ).

So—we suggest you take some time to dig through the site—even we’ve been surprised by what’s been turning up, and there’s much more to come.
