Welcome, You Are My Prized Guest
I’ve prepared a lavish, though perhaps a little unusual, banquet for you. Read the liner notes, they may go where liner notes have never gone before and listen to the music, over one and a quarter hours worth of listening pleasure. This will be the best medicine. Let the healing begin.
If you’re broken-hearted, come. If frustrated, come! If you seek peace and renewal, come! If you’re a doubter, leave that behind. If you’re sarcastic, leave that behind. If you’re just too clever for your own good, leave that behind as well. Debts, pain, commotion, complaining, people giving you the finger, leave all that behind. If you like music, come, step into my world as my special guest. I have talented and intriguing friends who will entertain you, perhaps amaze you, (though that word is over-used, as is others like awesome, unbelievable, very unique – if unique means one-of-a-kind in the universe very unique means what?). I think this album will make you content, at peace, reflective, muse, smile, at your ease. And when you do go back into that other world you’ll be more able to handle things, maybe even help others to handle things as well.
Think of this album as you would a special 20 course feast, served by highly skilled and differential servers from India and other parts of Asia. Dine on the finest handmade China, with crafted golden goblets and lovely silverware. The crystal is hand blown and painted with gold leaf. A matre’d never far away, with award winning French chefs (love their chefs, hate their waiters), with the tasteful sounds of classics and jazz wafting over the meal. And your only responsibility . . . enjoy. Oh, did I mention the lovely paintings and sculptures tastefully decorating the dining area. Before each course the servers offer glazed ice sherbet to cleanse your pallet. We actually start that cleansing with the first song, Right From Wrong. It gets the taste of that other world out of your mouth.
Brenda Tarpley, Bonnie Koloc, Muriel Deason, Mathias J. Pimperl, Loretta Webb, Virginia Patterson Hensley, Eleanora Fagan Gough, Joey Scarbury, Teresa James. These are all fine singers, some are famous under a different name, and some are not famous at all. Had they not changed their names would they have become famous anyway? Can’t they be great even if you haven’t heard of them? Maybe sounding great has nothing whatever to do with becoming well known. Brenda Tarpley became Brenda Lee. How about the others? You’ll find out as you get further into the liner notes.
The well known publicist Sandy Brokaw suggested I do a Desperate Housewives album at a brain-storming session in October of 2005 that included my video, graphics and promotion people. We had just worked a year on Jeannie Kendall’s album All The Girls I Am (which I co-produced), that received rave reviews, great chart numbers and even a nomination of Adult Contemporary Single Of The Year and for Jeannie Crossover Artist Of The Year. What should we do next? Was there anything more we could do to promote All The Girls I Am?
