Requested in "Request & Fill Corner" section...
Many of you may have noted in my blog that there are several albums of Pete Sandberg posted, one of my favorite vocalists.
Whether in ALIEN, SNAKE CHARMER, MIDNIGHT SUN or SOLO, his vocal ability allows him to sing in any style, and always fine.
In the mid-nineties meets Jonas Reingold, eventually became very good friends and wanted to start a band in which to focus their musical appetites: MIDNIGHT SUN.
While the group were put together, they decided to record a handful of songs composed long time ago, and would have no place into the new band style.
The duo baptized this project "SAND & GOLD" (Pete SANDberg & Jonas ReinGOLD).
"Remember My Name" is plenty of acoustic guitars and many Wurlitzer keyboards, being Sandberg's voice 'the big star' here.
Songs with great melody and emotion, in a typical scandinavian style, to name an immediate reference: BAD HABIT without electricity. Also american mid-western influence too.
Almost recorded by themselves, some friends contribute with their talents: Kee Marcello (EUROPE), with a cool electric guitar solo on track 11, Johan Glossner (GRAND ILLUSION) on guitars, and excelent session drummer Rasmus Kihlberg (LA Project feat Bill Champlin, PETER FRIESTEDT).
This is a very good album, solid and organic. Last track is simply fan-tas-tic.
First class recording quality, despite the self-managed production, and released by a small danish label.
Out Of Print and hard to find.
