Finally, Dan Melchior’s lost masterpiece is ready for release. After putting out two highly acclaimed albums for In the Red Records on 2001-2002, Dan wanted to branch out and explore new angles, but unfortunately, a fight with a new label left his follow-up to the well-received Bitterness, Spite, Rage and Scorn album on the shelf. Downloads from a leaked copy had fans begging for a vinyl version of the unreleased work, which sadly never came. Until now.
O’ Clouds Unfold is the record that links the heavy garage sound of Dan’s In the Red records to the more experimental pop side Dan has been exploring for the last seven years. It is a double album rich with pop anthems, moody brooders, and angry rockers. The record highlights all of Dan’s influences and talents, delivering the full range of what this man has to offer. While the album delivers a multitude of styles, the signature is Melchior’s hook-laden songwriting. Folks may argue, given the wealth of material Dan has been putting out over the last several years, but lots of people think this is the best record he's ever done. It has been a long time coming, but now it’s here. Hook or Crook is proud to finally make this previously unreleased tour de force available in a beautiful gatefold two-record package.
