We finally did it. Despite all recent recording action, our first release in three years is just now available, BETTY’s Snowbiz. It’s nice to know that Miracles Can Happen, although awful things take place at the Holiday Office Party. Don’t let it get to you. Total running time is about 27 minutes, so we ask just $9.99. You can preview songs for the seasonally depressed on the Stereo Society site in RealAudio. Check out the raucous rock+roll style of Georgia or the pure vocals of Happy Holidays.
This isn’t a standard holiday album with jolly remakes of White Christmas and other clapped-out vehicles of seasonal exploitation. It’s a set of all-original material without a cheesy cover tune to be heard (although there are a few passing references to faded icons). As far as we know, Tin Pan Alley never went much on the idea of Xmas Ain’t Coming (This Year). As we hope you’ll find out, they really missed out.
The CD is performed and recorded to the highest standards. Rock+roll rhythm tracks were recorded at Avatar Studios New York, (formerly Power Station and still one of the finest). Completion was at the Stereo Society studio, production as ever by Mike Thorne. It’s right up there with the best any of us has delivered. Guests include Genya Ravan and Gloria Steinem.
