A true underground legend, Madeleine Bell may not be a household name (yet) but her position as the pre-eminent session singer for the past forty years means her warm, soulful tones are instantly recognizable. Her beautiful voice has floated across radio, television, film soundtracks, the internet & now is finally available solo on CD. 'Doin' Things', her second Phillips LP, is being re-issued for the first time with two non-album singles from the same period as well as a b-side to a single that prefaced this LP, Go Ahead On, a co-write with Dusty Springfield, who also recorded her own version.
Being a member and composer of Citizen Cain, Stuart Bell release his first solo album playing all the instruments and sharing the vocals duties with 4 others singers such as Simone Rossetti and Arjen Lucassen. The addition of those vocals makes this Cd a Rock Opera. The concept is dark in nature and explore the mind of a lucid dreamer facing the reality and the world of dreams. The music contains some new soundscapes with heavier guitars, but the main attraction is like in Citizen Cain the keyboards and piano showing the numerous rhythm changes in the music.
