JOHN FARNHAM – Break The Ice [1987 unreleased album +2] *0dayrox EXCLUSIVE*
As requested here we have a rarity; “Break The Ice“, the JOHN FARNHAM album that never was… After Farnham success with his solo LP Whispering Jack his record company wanted to capitalize the moment and release this LP with songs he recorded back in 1984.
“Break The Ice” was meant to have the catalogue number INT 147.730 on Curb Records, however, for unknown reasons, this album was never manufactured or released. This is a German LP Test-pressing for this album.
These songs were subsequently used on a number of movie soundtracks like ‘Voyage Of The Rock Aliens (1984)’, ‘The Slugger’s Wife (1985)’, Fletch (1985) and RAD (1986), all cult pieces from the ’80s, and as the LP “Break The Ice” never materialized, were effectively “lost” in time.
In 1984, whilst John Farnham was in California working on the Little River Band album “Playing To Win” he recorded some vocal tracks at The Pasha Music House in Hollywood.
At the time, John was somewhat disenchanted with LRB, and was also in financial trouble as LRB failed to pay the bills. John, in an effort to make some extra money on the side, provided his amazing voice to 10 studio tracks.
These tracks were subsequently used on a number of movie soundtracks and were effectively “lost” in time due to the success of “Whispering Jack” and John leaving LRB.
Song quality is excellent, and the material, a must have for ’80s AOR / movie soundtrack fanatics. As 0dayrox extras, we added a couple of rare tracks / versions from the RAD movie performed by Farnham.
