a few thoughts about my new 3-cd set HOW I CHANGED THE WORLD ...
i suspect many of you don't really know what this
album is. it's 66 of my songs, written over the
last 30 years. most are performed by me, although
there are a number performed by artists who have covered my songs. the few people who've heard this collection have honestly been blown away. there isn't a throw-away cut on any of the 3 cds. the sound quality is excellent, even on the older recordings, which i recently remastered. the whole package comes in a 12" LP jacket, so it looks like a vinyl record. but inside are 4 cds...3 with music, and 1 with 60 pages of liner notes, pictures, and info on each track. you can load the liner notes cd on a computer or kindle ...it's a .pdf . the pictures trace my entire career, from the late 60s to the present. this is a massive project, and i've spent much of the past year refining it. it's now ready for your ears and eyes.
i promise you'll like most of it, if not all. it runs the musical gamut from a to at least v. less than 30 cents a song for something you'll listen to over and over again. thanks!
"What you’ve got here is a parallel history of white-boy pop music
over the last thirty years through the prism of one great songwriter
you may not have ever heard of... There are as many hits here as on
any album you’ll ever buy. Period." - paul rapp
