A Review of Toots Hibbard’s Reggae Version

Pam/Amazon/April 15, 2012
The sound is so good. I love the beat and as always, Toots’ voice. And I love the art work on the cover; it is really well done. May Toots live forever! He always has a new surprise for us. Jah love.

Katie Carpenter has a beautiful voice that really soars over this lovely and enchanting arrangement of “Unchained Melody.” You can tell this song is sung form the heart and is a really moving performance. Very happy I just listened to it!!! : ) ~Aiyana Cadwell (LA based singer/song-writer.)

The Neon Lights are Bright…

Tonight is the night that the musical, Ghost premieres on New York’s Broadway.  Playbill has all the details of cast and crew. You might be familiar with the story, “Ghost The Musical is a timeless fantasy about the power of love. Walking back to their apartment one night, Sam and Molly are mugged, leaving Sam murdered on a dark street. Sam is trapped as a ghost between this world and the next and unable to leave Molly who he learns is in grave danger. With the help of a phony storefront psychic, Oda Mae Brown, Sam tries to communicate with Molly in the hope of saving and protecting her.” The previews are buzzing with great reviews and fans will be thrilled to know that Dave Stewart composed the music and Alex North and Hy Zaret’s classic love song, “Unchained Melody” figures prominently in the stage version. We’re headed to New York to celebrate and represent the North clan.
