NEW ALBUM!ANTHOLOGY- Steve Dobrogosz & Berit Andersson (1983 -1993)
I am most happy to announce the release of Anthology, a collection of original songs recorded with vocalist Berit Andersson between 1984 and 1993. As the five albums Berit and I made have not previously been available digitally, a very large body of work is now presented to a new audience for the first time, decades having past since these 45 songs were written and recorded.
Anyone familiar with the original LPs (especially "The Final Touch" from 1987) will soon hear how much of the music has been dramitically remixed. I took this opportunity to edit and remaster, two good examples being - Oh Helen (from "SkinBalloon") and Salieri On The Throne (from "Jade").
Thank you, Berit. History.
On April 9, with the release of the "Sha-la" choir album from 1989, this season's project of restoring and re-releasing albums from the 80s and 90s will be complete. In addition to the Anthology collection with Berit Andersson, the albums Confessions, The Tender Arrow and Duckwalk are now restored and up at YouTube. Confessions and The Tender Arrow have undergone serious reformatting and sonic uplift, and are, I feel, vastly improved over the original versions.
In connection with the upcoming choir album release of "Sha-la", volume 4 of the Choir Songs series (pop/jazz) has been expanded and now includes 11 pieces.
Speaking of which, the B3z have released their 2nd single:
