From PR-Inside:

AMOEBA TO LAUNCH WITH LOST PARSONS RECORDINGS

A collection of lost collaborations cult rocker GRAM PARSONS recorded with the GRATEFUL DEAD will launch a new label created by the man behind US music store chain Amoeba.Amoeba boss DAVE PRINZ reportedly uncovered the 15 unreleased Parsons tracks while sifting through the Grateful Dead's 'vault' earlier this year (06) and the recordings will launch his Amoeba Records label early next year (07).

Most of the tracks are taken from a previously unreleased 1969 concert recording.The release will mark a year of Parsons celebrations - he would have turned 60 in 2007.Prinz, a huge fan of Parsons' music, hopes to follow the CD with other archival material, only a fraction of which appeared before the country rocker's death in 1973.
