New Muse-ic Monday is BACK! And we are proud to fire up the column with a fantastic new record from the solo work of Reeves Gabrels.

Gio Pilato interviewed Gabrels last year, you can read that article here: Between True & Imaginary Friends - An Interview with Reeves Gabrels.

Fairfax, VA -- In the period between American Bandstand and MTV, several shows tried to bring rock n' roll to televison. In the wake of Elvis Presley and the Beatles' debut on The Ed Sullivan Show, '60s series like Hullabaloo, Shindig and The Music Scene featured rock and pop performers. But it wasn't until The Midnight Special premiered on August 19, 1972, that rock n' roll found its own home on the air.

This September, the TV DVD archivists at StarVista Entertainment/Time Life will bring consumers back to the '70s for the seminal, groundbreaking live music TV show on DVD, featuring extensive bonus features! THE MIDNIGHT SPECIAL COLLECTOR'S EDITION, available exclusively online at MIDNIGHTSPECIALDVDS.COM beginning August 12, 2014 will be released in a beautifully-packaged 11-disc set, featuring nearly 5 hours of specially-produced bonus features and a 32-page collector's book.
