You’d be wrong. Happily wrong I suspect.
Whilst excavating through the Festival tape archive sourcing the tapes to bring you the Black Diamonds box sets our intrepid miners happily stumbled across this.
Two completely unreleased, undiscovered, undocumented Sunsets sides for scrapped single release.
May 1967 The Sunsets single “The Hot Generation” / “This Is What It’s All About” (Festival FK-1818) was issued to co-incide with the release of Australian surf film of the same name. Both songs being featured in the movie soundtrack.
The film was screened and scheduled for release was another single from The Sunsets, two more songs from the movie.
The Sunsets “Animal” / “Uptight, Out Of Sight” (Festival FK-1895) was scheduled and prepared to be released in August 1967. August 1967 came and went. No single. Nada, zilch, zippo!
Since then the sides have sat untouched in Festival tape vaults.
The Blank Recording Company has happily rectified the situation and righted this wrong presenting these two stellar sides as they were intended to be enjoyed. Black vinyl 45rpm sides.
First release in our swank new full colour Blank Recording Company house sleeve!

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: After almost 4 years of spitting the week with mail order along with over the counter trading, the mail order side getting busier along with the release schedule for the Blank Recording Co starting to fill up for 2015 and beyond has meant the bricks and mortar trading as it's been done for the last 4 years will cease being at the end of September. The eventual model will be some kind of "pop up shop" trading. To make the transition easier for those who frequent to get a heads up beyond the internet, trading for the month of October will be Fridays: midday - 5:30pm & Saturdays: midday - 4pm. From November 1st the regular trading hours will cease and be mail order only. Anytime that changes and "pop up shop" trading occurs it'll be announced via online portals. Thanks.
