Swedish bassist extraordinaire Marcel Jacob (TALISMAN, ex-YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, JOHN NORUM) has posted the following message on his official web site:"2004 has seen some activity...the releases of 'the remasters' has continued, with 'Humanimal', 'Life+ 5 Out of 5', 'Truth+Live at Sweden Rock 2001', and finally the rerelease of the first HUMAN CLAY album on 'Closing the Book on Human Clay' seeing the light of day...the work on the DVD has progressed, to the point that all production parts have been assembled, meaning recordings, edits, mixing, mastering, paperwork etc...it's been no teaparty :-)...with for example the original tapes from Sweden Rock lost, and the only hard disc back-up suffering an internal meltdown, thankfully Pontus [Norgren] had made a rough mix supposedly to be used as support for overdubs which was decent enough for usage..this of course means there are no overdubs for the [Sweden Rock Festival] concert...TRUE LIVE :-)!...the show was felt to be pretty good, so despite no overdub fixes, out of tune guitars, and sound quality suffering from recording flaws and no balanced mix, it is still possible to listen to it :-)...everybody knows [TALISMAN singer] Jeff Scott Soto released another solo effort, but Jamie and I got involved with LAST AUTUMN'S DREAM to do their followup CD to their successful debut... LAST AUTUMN'S DREAM is the band with Mikael Erlandsson and FAIR WARNING guitar player Andy Malecek...looks like there may be some shows in Japan in March 2005 to support this album... I have also been working with Tommy Denander on the upcoming SPEEDY GONZALES album, writing some songs and playing the bass...this to be released early next year...2005, maybe a new TALISMAN album :-)"
