JIM PETERIK (Survivor) – The Songs (2016)
Continuing with the JIM PETERIK-related requested music, here’s “The Songs“, a collection of his most celebrated songs freshly re-recorded in acoustic form, released via his own label World Stage International Records.
For years Peterik fans and friends have been asking him to do an acoustic album of Jimbo biggest songs done in an intimate and more revealing way.
Peterik enlisted long time collaborator Fred Mollin to help on this journey. Fred has produced albums in the unplugged style for brilliant artists such as Jimmy Webb, Art Garfunkel, America and Kris Kristofferson.
On “The Songs” Jimbo has reached out across generations to both classic and current hit artists to guest on this project as well.
We have songs from the Ides Of March (Peterik fist band still active today) such as the classic ‘Vehicle’ o ‘L.A. Goodbye’, to Survivor staples like ‘High On You’, ‘I Can’t Hold Back’, and of course, the huge hit ‘Eye Of The Tiger’.
It’s very nice to hear as well ‘That’s Why God Made The Radio’, co-written by Peterik for The Beach Boys, done here with a lovely set of strings, piano and lots of harmony vocals.
“The Songs” also features two new songs, the great ballad ‘The Same Muse’ and the soulful ‘Miracle at Ground Zero’, both written by Peterik which grew out of suggestions from Fred Mollin while preparing the album.
Additionally, we have as bonus (not present on the CD) the new Peterik track presented few days ago: ‘We All Bleed Red‘. Written and recorded following the recent shootings at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, this song is about violence and intolerance and hatred everywhere, and how we are really all the same inside – in other words, we all bleed red.
A delicious album from the superb artist that is Jim Peterik.
Thanks for the great music Jimbo.
