In July 1947 rancher Mac Brazel discovered unusual debris strewn across his land near Roswell, New Mexico. Reporting his find to the authorities resulted in personnel from the Roswell US Air Force Base carrying out a thorough investigation. Shortly after, the Base issued a press release stating a crashed "flying saucer" had been recovered, only hours later to withdraw this statement and to report instead that the debris was nothing more than material from a downed weather balloon.
Now fifty years later, and after exhaustive research by many parties, this may not have been the case. There have long been rumours of a crashed saucer, alien bodies and a cover-up of the real facts. What actually happened in the desert of New Mexico remains a fascinating mystery to this day.
Following the initial release of Roswell by Janus back in 1998 the album went on to top numerous internet album charts for several months at the time including the New Age,Classical and Electronic music ones. Owing to the creative diverity of all of the tracks making up the album it quickly established itself with music lovers across the board worldwide and its impact and popularity continues to this day.Works from it have been used in many film and television productions to date as well as being the regular theme music to numerous radio shows around the globe.Gulf Breeze from the album has been used as the show signature intro tune by renowned broadcaster Jerry Pippin on his popular weekly show now for 13 years.
Due to both its timelessness and ongoing popularity throughout the years, Roswell - The Album has continually been re-issued and re-released establishing itself with new generations of fans along the way. A special limited edition run of 500 copies of the album was produced by Janus in 2004 which incorporated the original 1947 ABC News broadcasts at the time of the incident and quickly became collectors items. Janus currently has plans to remaster that special version of the album and make it available once more for all to enjoy in the very near future.
For now both the orignal CD version and digital download are available from his official music store.
