Ytterligare information gällande Clif Magness ”nya” album
Fredagen den 27:e maj släpper bolaget MelodicRock Classics albumet ”Road To Gold – Official Colletion Of Lost Demos” med sångaren och låtskrivaren Cliff Magness. Så här går att läsa i ett pressmeddelande:
”One of 5 songs written by Glen Ballard and myself for a project we called MISS TEXAS in hopes of securing a recording contract. These are some of my favorite songs I’ve be involved with. No contract was forthcoming.”
The time has come to showcase Clif Magness’ songwriting career, by opening his demo vaults to
fans for the first time.
‘Road To Gold’ is the unleashing of 40 years of writing, covering different styles, eras and purposes, all with Magness’ own brand of melodic brilliance on display.
Given the brief to ‘look through everything’, Clif, together with A&R guru Magnus Soderqvist and MelodicRock Classics CEO Andrew McNeice, found 60 tracks, which are compiled over 4CDs in chronological order.
Clif Magness: “A lot of the songs included here in this compilation are songs that were written and recorded (with my vocal mostly) with the hope of securing recordings by major artists of the day. Therefore, song and singing styles vary depending on who I’m pitching to.
For example, “Collection Of Hearts” was written with Alee Willis for Stevie Nicks. “The Boy Delirious” and “Forget That Girl” were written for Aerosmith; “Running Away” for Hanson; “Saving Grace”, “The Children”, “The Other Side Of Love” for Michael Jackson and “Love With a View” for Barbra Streisand.
To make this package a truly special tribute to a great writing talent, Clif has been working on detailed song credits and liner notes to explain each song on the compilation.
The 4CD Set will be housed in a double sized jewelcase and will be limited to 1000 units worldwide.
It is expected CDs will be ready to ship at the end of May.
A digital release will follow at a later date.
Pre-orders will be available from April 19.
Direct pre-orders of ‘Road To Gold’ will be priced at USD$75 (including worldwide shipping)
All those that pre-order will receive a 1CD sized digital download, with highlights from the set for advance listening. The full digital audio will be delivered the day the sets ship out.
