Workin’ For The Music Man Gets Vinyl Reissue

October 11, 2012 | Posted in: Daniel Romano 0

You’ve Changed Records is very happy to announce the first ever vinyl pressing of Daniel Romano‘s debut solo album Workin’ For The Music Man. This limited edition 180 gram vinyl LP will be available November 6th.

Workin’ For The Music Man was originally released in 2010 on CD and Digital formats in a rush of activity that allowed no time for vinyl pressing, and time, from there, moved on. But in the words of the man himself “Time forgot to change my heart;” we’ve always loved this record and are happy to make it available on LP format with a beautiful new cover designed by Daniel.

New Release: Daniel Romano – “Sleep Beneath the Willow”

This album was recorded stereophonically. The vocals were reproduced through a Sennheiser 421 microphone; rhythm, Royer 121; piano and organ, Royer 121, violin, Royer 121; and guitars, Royer 121. The session was first recorded on Ampex audio tape at 15 inches per second.

Sleep Beneath the Willow mixes timeless songwriting with late ’60s AM country arrangements baring the influence of artists such as Lee Hazelwood and Wichita Lineman/Galveston era Glen Campbell. The album is constructed around flourishes of fiddle, honky-tonk guitar, banjo, and sweeping harmonies courtesy of a trio of Toronto singers; Misha Bower (Bruce Peninsula), Tamara Lindeman
(The Weather Station) and Lisa Bozikovic. The songs tell stories of regret, sorrow, love, and yearning; the stuff of life. They tell of ex-wives, bluebirds, and finding the strength to do the right and proper thing. It’s a big, warm sound.

Approaching his music like a true craftsman, Daniel produced, engineered, and performed the majority of the instruments on Sleep Beneath the Willow. It was recored to two inch tape in his home studio in Welland, ON.
