Tommy Bolin's Teaser gets deluxe vinyl treatment

Tommy Bolin’s debut solo album Teaser is being reissued in a deluxe vinyl package to celebrate its 40th anniversary.

The one-time Zephyr and James Gang guitarist originally released the work in 1975 while he was a member of Deep Purple. He died of a drug overdose the following year, at the age of 25.

UDR will issue Teaser 40th Anniversary Vinyl Edition Box Set on May 18. The 3-disc collection is accompanied by two live CDs featuring long-lost outtakes and alternative mixes. The live CDs are made up of performances from Ebbets Field, The Northern Lights, My Father’s Place and Albany.
