TONY MITCHELL - Beggars Gold (Showcase)

MelodicRock Records is very excited to announce the signing of TONY MITCHELL – the voice of British hard rock band Kiss Of The Gypsy.
September 14 will see the release of Tony’s high-energy melodic rock masterpiece, TONY MITCHELL ‘Beggars Gold’, his first solo album since 2011.
‘Beggars Gold’ started off as 22 songs, later trimmed to 13, only the best of the best included on the final cut.
Tackling issues like self-confidence, bullying, drug/alcohol abuse & homelessness in songs like ‘Stone by Stone’, ‘Beggars Gold’ & ‘In Everyone of Us’, only adds more dynamics to the album.
‘Take a Look at Me Now’, highlights Mitchell’s songwriting craft, written about the disillusioned, talent show generation, with a tongue in cheek, sinister twist.
The ‘Beggars Gold’ album tries to give everything that any true melodic/AOR rock fan would want to hear from an album. Mitchell has thrown everything at this one, huge guitar riffs, anthemic choruses, gospel choirs, epic harmonies & raw, honest powerful rock vocals.
‘Beggars Gold’ will be released via MRR September 14 in two formats - regular jewel case CD and a limited Special Edition.
The Limited Special Edition (500 units only) will be a double CD format (jewel case). Featured on the bonus disc is Tony’s 2011 solo release ‘Far Away From Home’.
This hard-rocking release was previously only ever available for a short time direct from Tony and on digital platforms. In this format the double disc set will be housed in a special cardboard slipcase and once sold out, is gone forever.
But that’s not all - there is one more bonus! All Special Edition pre-orders of either will receive an exclusive digital download of a second acoustic solo album Tony recorded to accompany the ‘Far Away From Home’ release.
‘No Man’s Land’ features amore reflective side to Tony Mitchell the ‘rock star’.
TONY MITCHELL ‘Beggars Gold’ SPECIAL EDITION (2CD, Slipcase)(500 only) $25 (incl. shipping)
TONY MITCHELL ‘Beggars Gold’ Regular Edition $20 (incl. shipping)
Tony Mitchell comments: “Beggar’s Gold is an album that has taken many twists & turns as I was writing & recording it. I wanted to write an album that had everything I would want from a melodic/AOR album & more, as a songwriter, I wanted to craft songs that had depth, dynamics, power & anthemic qualities.
I wanted to capture energy & attitude along with meaningful, emotional moments & I think that I have managed achieve that with this album. From the start, I wanted a barrage of songs that would get into the ears of those who like melodic rock with powerful guitars, huge harmonies & memorable hooks.
After pouring my heart & soul into the making of this album, I am very proud of it & in this age of writers/musicians not making any money from releasing their work due to free streaming/downloading etc., it’s my way of saying thanks to all the fans that have kept their faith in me & my music & to all the new fans who want to join me on this journey.
Climb aboard this rock n roll train, put the needle on the record & let’s dance!”
A regular edition version will be released in Japan via AnderStein Music with the exclusive bonus track ‘Kiss Of An Angel’, in October.

New Book - BERNIE MARSDEN 'Tales of Tone and Volume'

Bernie Marsden is one of the UK’s foremost rock and blues guitarists, famous for his time in professional bands since 1972 and a founder member of one of the biggest rock bands of all time, the mighty Whitesnake.
But, there is a lot more to this man, from his first band UFO to treading the boards of the National Theatre in London, on stage with Ringo Starr in Monaco, playing the Beacon Theatre in New York with The Allman Brothers Band, writing and playing with Joe Bonamassa and Motorhead.
His long term friendships with so many top names in the guitar business, Billy Gibbons, Steve Lukather, Warren Haynes, rejoining the new Whitesnake line up of recent years and a solo career that keeps him both on the road and in the studio. He became interested in guitars as a teenager watching the Beatles, his fascination continues to this day.
Bernie has developed one of the most unique and expansive private guitar collections in the world. 
Over the last two years the collection has been extensively photographed by Melvyn May and the Rufus team using a special “light painting” technique to reveal them in all their glory, from the unseen wonders of the world famous “The Beast” to the intricate detail on his much signed and cherished Martin Coletti. Every guitar comes with its own story, from how it was acquired to where and when it was played, you will be able to see the very guitar he used during the writing and recording of some rock classics, many anecdotes of some pretty famous people encountering his guitars on the road and in the studio.
The images have been assembled into this beautiful, 340 page full colour luxury book, Tales of Tone and Volume, available in three stunning editions. Accompanying the book will be a CD of original guitar backing tracks written just for this project. The CD will contain a backing track for the user, plus lead guitar from a vintage guitar seen in the book. The two high end editions also ship with a genuine piece of an original 50’s Lifton guitar case, taken from Bernie’s collection and carefully cut down to include with each copy.
As Bernie says “I love guitars and I’ve seen and collected many books on the subject, the time and effort spent creating these images and the finished book makes this an extraordinary project by any standard. I’m really proud of what has been created here. I’m bound to say it, but, if you are a guitar collector, a player, or simply an official guitar nerd you are going to love this book and the photographs of “The Beast” took my breath away”
A great cross section of vintage Gibson, Fender, Gretsch, and Martin guitars, the PRS Bernie Marsden Prototype, his legendary Les Paul, the 1920’s acoustic Martin Coletti signed first by bluesman “Honeyboy Edwards, Gary Moore, Peter Green, Billy Gibbons” and many, many more musicians Bernie has worked with and admires.
The Beast Edition” is a large, and we do mean large A3 Portrait book, quarter bound in brown re-cycled leather, that comes in a wooden clamshell case, engraved with The Beast Logo. It also ships with exclusive framable prints of The Beast, a CD of music, a 7” vinyl single and a folder containing a piece of vintage 1950’s Lifton guitar case.
