Out Oct. 30 from Reimagine Music.
Goodbye My Love introduces emerging musical innovator Frankie Siragusa, as he creates a Beatles record from an archive of songs written by members of The Beatles for other artists of the era. "Most of these pieces were never recorded by The Beatles themselves—but what if they had been?” This question drives Siragusa as he performs, records, and mixes each track of the collection. Inspired by the group’s creative and innovative studio work, Siragusa's choice of instruments mirrors The Beatles' own. He even goes so far as to steer away from modern 48-plus track recording technology, limiting himself instead to only 4-track recording, as The Beatles themselves had done. He performs the songs alongside Ken Stringfellow (The Posies, R.E.M., Big Star), Roger Joseph Manning, Jr. (Jellyfish, Beck), and Keith Slettedahl (The 88, Ray Davies Band).
Producer and Reimagine founder Jim Sampas says of these three projects: “Great art is malleable, and these new interpretations are reaffirming and multi-faceted. They allow us to experience the genius of The Beatles’ seminal work from a fresh perspective, and this youthful approach will serve to introduce these iconic songs to yet another, younger generation. Then from across the universe comes the icing on the cake—The Lost Songs project. These are Beatles songs that most people have never, ever, heard. The approach that Frankie Siragusa has taken, keeping true to The Beatles’ esthetic and assembling the perfect vocalists for this project, will make this a major discovery the world over.”
