Initial reactions to Meld, our new CD, is overwhelmingly great! We think you're
in for a real treat when you buy the CD! Order now because THEY'RE HERE!!!

WLVR, WDIY/WXLV, and WMUH are already playing tracks from Meld as well as many
internet radio stations!!!!!

The CD was mastered at Star City Recording by Carl Cadden James (of InsideOut
recording group Shadow Gallery) under the supervision of legendary producer Jeff
Glixman (Kansas, Yngwie Malmsteen). The cover art was done by Martin Kornick
who has done covers for Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Transatlantic, and the mighty
Spock's Beard.

While you're web surfing, check out the Pinnacle web site at the NEW address: You can order Meld there right now! You can also buy
the CD (and our forst one, too) at CD Baby.

Our first CD of five original tunes and one extra bonus surprise is available
there and at CD Baby! Check it out at . You can
also see any member of the band to buy your very own copy of our first release
called "A Man's Reach..." We had fun putting it together and still love the
results. You can read the CD's first public review at the ProgGnosis web site:

Beatles, and other top shelf groups. The group includes Greg Van
Allen (guitars and vocals), Rod Gilkeson (vocals), Bob Ashmore (Keyboards), Bill
Fox (bass and vocals), and Billy Fenstermacher (drums and vocals).

Greg Waltzer, and Bill Fox. Our debut CD is called "Moons of Saturn" and is

This progressive and classic rock band's first gig was at Bethlehem Musikfest,
the largest outdoor music festival in the nation. Although ShadowPlay has
disbanded, most of the members continue on.

Greg, Bob, and Bill are playing in a Classic Rock band called Pulse.
(See above.)

Bill, of course, sends you this message every week to keep you informed of all
the different things going on in his life.

The Critters were uncaged for the last time at the Alburtis Rod and Gun Club on
October 16, 2004. Thanks to everyone who came out for our last gig and to
everyone who showed their support through the years. We love you.
