New release: 2CD WALLY TAX – Bridges Are Burning
PSEUDONYM RECORDS are pleased to announce from the original master tapes of the album Bridges Are Burning by the legendary ex-Outsiders singer WALLY TAX.
From 1973-76 ex-Outsiders singer Wally Tax made some of the most accomplished and affecting music of his career. Teamed with a sympathetic producer (Martin Duiser) and a gifted arranger (Hans Hollestelle), Tax was at last able to make the kind of records he’d dreamed of: an alluring cocktail of romantic pop, folk, and rock informed by the work of Aznavour, Sinatra, Tim Hardin, Jacques Brel, Ray Charles, Hank Williams, Roy Orbison and Johnny Jordaan, but always delivered with his own personal touch.
Bridges Are Burning is an anthology compiling the very best of Wally Tax’s mid-seventies work for Ariola Records, including the hit singles Miss Wonderful, It Ain’t No Use, Evidently and Let’s Dance, along with sublime LP tracks like She’s As Lovely As A Breeze, She (Went Like She Came), It’s Too Late, No Life At All and the song Wally considered to be the best he ever wrote, It’s Raining In My Heart. These classic recordings are joined by a second disc featuring 20 previously unreleased demos from the same period. The CD booklet features rare photos along with full liner notes by Mike Stax, including interview material with Martin Duiser and Hans Hollestelle.
Release November 23rd, 2013.
