THE CONTINUUM GROUP INC. ROGER DALTREY

 CRANFORD, N.J., Dec. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- The Continuum Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: CNUU) today announced that its Continuum Records label will release a solo album by Roger Daltrey, lead singer of The Who, sometime during the second calendar quarter of 1994. The album will be recorded during a live concert at New York's Carnegie Hall in late February, which will be telecast worldwide on a pay-per-view basis. Daltrey will perform classic songs made famous by The Who, together with a full orchestra and several guest musical artists. The first such guest artist to confirm his appearance is Eddie Vedder, lead singer of Pearl Jam, whose album entitled "Vs.," released last month on the Epic label, broke all Soundscan sales records in its first week of release.
 "Roger Daltrey's career with The Who spans what is considered the 'prime growth' years of rock & roll," said Tim Brack, President and Chief Operating Officer of The Continuum Group. "His voice made famous and brought to life the genius songwriting of Pete Townshend, whose work is currently thrilling a new generation of fans in the Broadway hit musical 'TOMMY.' Roger's debut album for our label promises to be a very special event chronicling his entire career, including a heartfelt celebration of The Who, to be shared onstage by many of his friends and peers in the music business. We believe that the worldwide sales potential for this project is tremendous."
 Mr. Brack confirmed that the label is in the final stages of lining up guest performers for the Carnegie Hall concert, and that full details will be announced shortly.
 The album will be the first under Daltrey's worldwide deal with Continuum, which was signed last August. Under the agreement, Continuum will participate in net revenues from the pay-per-view showing of the live concert performance.
