CD/DVD Releases: ''Charlestown'' Update From Manning

Posted on Sunday, August 22 @ 23:00:00 UTC by nightowl

Charlestown - Coming October 2010 on the Festival Music(F2) label.

"The new album has reached its mastering stage with the artwork now in full production," says Guy Manning. With a good headwind and weather, we are on course for our Autumn release schedule (OK, that's enough of the sailing imagery I think).

"Charlestown is made up of six new recordings including the epic mulit-sectioned title track. The album features the new live band line-up (except for Conor Lawrence, who arrived after recording was concluded) and includes Dave Albone's last work with the band before his retirement. Once again, some extra guests have been drafted in to help add to that unique sound which is Manning music! (Information on the Manning website - www.guymanning.com).

"The front cover has been especially created by Rosie Manning (who also did the Songs From The Bilston House artwork).

"Definitely a more challenging listen this time around, lots of quirky time signatures, stark lights and shades plus more band ensemble / orchestral playing...I always liked albums that I maybe did not get into right away, but kept coming back to time after time to really appreciate... A Passion Play and Topographic Oceans spring to mind ... my first reaction to them was 'what the F*?/*!^' but now I love them dearly.
