Release Date Upkeep

After searching through the U.S copyright database, the release dates for a few Primetime songs have been clarified.  Thanks to skors on the Discord server for finding the database search and for pinning down the release dates for Racing to Victory & Determination.  I also added the correct date for Showdown and confirmed the already listed date for Grid Lock.

NFL Primetime Music Discord Server

Josh Ochs & Benjamin Lane have started an NFL Primetime Music Discord Server.  So, if you'd like to discuss Primetime music or help ID stuff, you can do that at the following link:

Out Front - Album Link

Benjamin Lane found that CHAP 121 is on the Nichion Sounds Library, so I added a link on the Out Front/US #22 post.

Unknown Song #21 Identified

Back in my first post from this late-July extravaganza, I mentioned "at least three, possibly four" newly identified NFL Primetime songs.  The fourth one, "Overdrive," only had the song title mentioned when it was copyright flagged on Godzfire's YouTube account.  Less than a day later, it was fully identified by Moleoman on the Library Music Themes message board.  Overdrive comes from the Amphonic music libary and was written by Howard Jones & Tim Shaxson.  I couldn't really find any info on either composer.  There is a Tim Shaxson who's a Technical Sales Manager for the mixing-board company DiGiCo, but I'm not 100% sure that's the same guy.  Anyway, thanks to both Godzfire and Moleoman for getting this one ID'd.

Unknown Song #40 Identified

The other Rick DiFonzo piece in this mini-flourish of identified Primetime tracks is "Surf Your Own Wave." I'm not sure why this one didn't get used more on the show since it fits perfectly with football highlights (much better than it does with surfing), but oh well.  In addition to its official BRg album, Surf Your Own Wave is contained on a 2015 compilation album titled Surf's Up:  Surf & Beach Rock Jams.  This album is available on both Apple Music (linked) and Amazon Music.  Again, thanks to Godzfire for ID'ing this one.

Unknown Song #39 Identified

The second of the four unknown songs to be identified on July 23rd., "Power Plant," is also the first of two to be written by Rick DiFonzo.  Rick DiFonzo was a member of The Bleeding Heart Band that backed Roger Waters around 1990, and he's also associated with the BRg production music company.  Power Plant, as well as the song I'll post the ID for tomorrow, comes from the BRg library.  This library is hosted on the Manhattan Music website.  Unfortunately, Manhattan doesn't appear to show album release dates anywhere on their streaming service.  I also couldn't find these albums on Discogs, so the year that Power Plant was released will remain murky for now.  Again, thanks to Godzfire for getting this track ID'd.
