 Notes & Reviews
 
Godfrey Townsend is a New York based musician who has worked with many of rock music's most influential names. In the past decade alone, he has been recruited to work with: John Entwistle, bass guitarist of The Who Jack Bruce, bass guitarist/vocalist of Cream Dave Mason, guitarist/vocalist of Traffic Alan Parsons, producer/engineer/recording artist He has also worked with Ann Wilson from Heart, Todd Rundgren, Christopher Cross, Mark Farner, Joey Molland from Badfinger, Denny Laine from Wings, Spencer Davis, Mitch Ryder, Billy Squier, Terry Sylvester of The Hollies, Felix Cavaliere...just to name a few of Classic Rock's royalty... Taking influences and inspiration from such guitar greats as Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, David Gilmour, Robin Trower and more recently, Joe Satriani and Steve Vai, he has compiled a CD of soulfully passionate guitar compositions from several decades of demos... 'I am very excited and pleased with how good the final masters of these tunes have turned out...it would not have come to fruition without the masterful help of my musical partner, Steve Murphy...he played drums on all the tracks as well as engineered, mixed, produced and composed with me on this...other members of The Alan Parsons Live Project, John Montagna and Manny Focarazzo (bassist And keyboardist, respectively) lent their extraordinary talents to the recording...my son Joseph, who is a fine bassist and keyboardist, also makes a special appearance...Bill Murphy, (Steve's brother) masterfully co-engineered the final mixes at his studio in Florida...I couldn't have hoped for a better finished product than what I have here...every song is another exciting journey that leads into the next track...if you are a fan of Classic Rock music and guitar playing, I think you will really enjoy this...please feel free to give me your review of it with any suggestions or requests you may have for what will definitely be a soon-to-follow-up 2nd CD'...please enjoy, Godfrey Townsend.
