Hey all, here it is: 8-track album sampler ep as the precursor of the album “Imagine’ being ‘John Lennon”. The album will only be ready during the winter,but it was important to me that something came out this year,as it is both dull and golden wedding for the “shooting stars” broadcasts in 1996, and for the song imagine.. and today is also the sad day for John Lennon fans,the 41st anniversary of his death..
today would also have been Anders Frandsen’s 61st day R.I.P…Anders was the host on the program “shooting stars” in 1995 and 96, and was with me in the Netherlands when, as someone knows, I absolutely did not win the International final..oh well, can’t win ‘ em all can ya?..
Well, anyroad so the first issue is Imagine from the inaugural Danish program 9, which begins with a small pre-interview with Anders Frandsen and comment from Michael Elo. The sound has been tapped from a VHS tape, but with Tin Soheili’s help has been fixed up.
The Ep’s 7 other tracks are Outtake’s and work-in-progress’s early mixes from the recordings of my 2 John Lennon tribute albums released in 2015 and 17. These outtakes have been sent back and forth during the recordings between me and Michael Theet who was co-producer on the recordings,thanks for the help Michael. Also thanks to Rooster music and the network site Thorvaldsen.. stay tuned for the complete works version.
