Rock Candy Records Brings New Masters To EDDIE MONEY Classics

Artist: 
 
The following two new Rock Candy titles are available now from www.rockcandyrecords.com for a discounted price including postage to anywhere in the world for the next two weeks ending on February 9.  

EDDIE MONEY 'WHERE'S THE PARTY' CANDY253
 
WHEN THIS ALBUM was released, in 1982, Eddie Money was a hugely successful and famous artist with a string of hit singles and platinum albums to his name. Eddie's raspy tones and his penchant for earthy blue collar rock had served him well, yet his lust for living life to the full had, before the release of his last album, taken a turn for the worse when ill-health nearly ruined his good fortune.
Luckily, Eddie continued to recover from this health set back and commenced the recording his fifth album 'Where's The Party?' an album largely produced, as was his previous platinum smash 'No Control', by veteran studio wizard, Tom Dowd (Derek & The Dominoes, Cream etc) in Los Angeles, surrounded by a number of top sessions players, including members of Mr Mister, The Steve Miller Band and Rod Stewart's band. In keeping with previous recordings Eddie co-wrote a selection of radio friendly, tough-guy rock tracks that gave full reign to his mellifluous voice.
Whilst it's true to say that none of the tracks on this album achieved hit single status, the body of work is beyond reproach, serving up a choice selection, songs such as 'The Big Crash', 'Club Michelle' and 'Backtrack', that fit firmly into the Money trademark sound of solid riffs and big shout-it-loud hooks. Indeed, as one of the best male vocalists of the era, Eddie stands out like a sparkling diamond.

EDDIE MONEY 'CAN'T HOLD BACK' CANDY252
 
YOU CAN SAY what you want about American rock in the 80s, but it was mostly all about feeding FM radio with huge hit singles. That was something Eddie Money had plenty of experience of, having scored a not inconsiderable amount of bonafide hits and airplay since he started recording during the previous decade. For Eddie, every move was calculated for maximum commercial impact, which more often than not meant wrapping his raspy voice around the best songs possible.
'Can't Hold Back' was Eddie Money's sixth album and the first to be produced by Richie Zito, a man with an impressive resume, including crafting records by Cheap Trick, Heart, Bad English and the Cult. Issued in 1986, the album moved Eddie's career firmly back in the spotlight, giving rise to no less than three hit singles, including 'I Wanna Go Back' and 'Endless Nights'. However it was the killer track 'Take Me Home Tonight' that put the icing on this particular cake, with Eddie duetting with iconic vocalist Ronnie Spector. The result of the collaboration and accompanying video was spectacular, helping to send the track to #4 on the US singles chart.
Joined by the cream of the session world including bassist Randy Jackson (Journey), drummer Mike Baird (Michael Bolton) and keyboard maestro Steve George (Mr Mister) his voice is triumphant and the material is first class. Every reason to believe, in fact, that this album is the pinnacle of Eddie's career.

EDDIE MONEY Hopes To Release New Album 'Within The Next Six Months' (Billboard.com)

Artist: 
Titled "Shake That Thing," the album may also lead to a revival of his "Two Tickets To Paradise" stage show.
 
Eddie Money may lament that "I can't sing the Beatles' 'When I'm 64' anymore" now that he's turned 65, but he hardly considers that an age of retirement. In fact, he plans on shakin' some new music loose in the not-too-distant future.
 
Money tells Billboard that he's "written about five or six really good songs. It's very hard rock 'n' roll. I don't have the greatest rock 'n' roll voice in the world -- I'm not Paul Rodgers, but when you put me on the radio, you know it's Eddie Money." Among the new tunes are "I Ain't No Wishing Well," "Missing You Blues" and "I Ain't No Good," and he's also planning to include a live version of the title track from his album "Life For the Taking."
 

 
Money's already started recording the album, which he plans to title "Shake That Thing," in California with Gary Mallaber on drums and a variety of other players. "It should probably be out within the next six months," Money predicts. Meanwhile, he's helping some of his children with their musical aspirations: daughter Jesse, a onetime contestant on MTV's "Rock the Cradle," continues to be part of her father's band, while son Dez Money is leading his own group, The Faze, that occasionally opens shows for his father.
 
Eddie Money, meanwhile, is also planning to breathe new life into "Two Tickets to Paradise," the autobiographical stage musical that premiered in June 2009 on Long Island. Money, who co-wrote the book and penned six new songs for the production with director/playwright John Blenn, says he wants to find another home for it soon, perhaps on Broadway but possibly in Las Vegas or in the Money stronghold of Detroit. "It's a great play and it's wonderful tunes and I've got a bunch of Broadway-type songs in it," says Money, who appears at the end of the show to sing duets of some of his hits with the lead actor.
 
But, he adds, "I don't want to make it into a movie. 'Rock of Ages,' they turned it into a movie with Tom Cruise and everything and he looked ridiculous. And once they put it out as a movie the play didn't do as well in New York. It takes the mystique out of it. So I just want it to be on stage, where it was meant to be."
