2014 Fall A&E Guide: Game Theory finally gets reissued

Image

That Omnivore Recordings will reissue Game Theory’s looong-out-of-print 1982 debut, Blaze of Glory, on CD, LP and digitally on September 2, is exciting news for fans of the criminally underknown Northern California power-pop greats. That it’s just the first in a planned series of GT re-releases set to include twin album pillars The Big Shot Chronicles (1986) and Lolita Nation (1987) amounts to a musical miracle. The only bummer: Scott Miller, the genius songwriter at the group’s center who died last year at age 53, won’t be here for the celebration.
