'Shoot Out' was released on the
legendary Rick Rubin's American Recordings in 1996, captured the sound of a rock and roll movement that was unlike anything happening
at the time.
“I am very excited to see these records available to the public once again,” said Greg Loiacono,
band co-founder. “These were formative times in the band’s history and this music is particularly
unique and defining.
“It took a long time to get these two records back to the fans,” said Tim Bluhm. “We are grateful
that Joe Poletto and the team at Blue Rose Music were persistent and knew how much getting
these records back out would mean to the entire Hips family.”
“Just like the fans, we embrace The Mother Hips story,” said Joe Poletto, founder of Blue Rose
Music. “There have been many ups and downs for the band, but we are glad that they are still
creating music and that we have the chance to enjoy these two important records again with
them. This is something to celebrate.”
