October 10, 2010, 8 years ago
HELIX mainman Brian Vollmer has issued the following update:"Over the past two weeks we’ve been hard at work at A Studios here in London, Ontario with Aaron Murray on our upcoming acoustic CD entitled Smash Hits Unplugged. The CD is comprised of all our hits plus the JAMES LEROY song 'A Touch of Magic' which I’ve always wanted to record. I actually met and talked to James Leroy long ago (around 1980) when we played The Belgium Club in Delhi with Major Hooples Boarding House. The other songs we’re going acoustic versions of are: 'Rock You', 'Heavy Metal Love', 'Gimme Gimme Good Lovin’', 'Make Me Do (Anything You Want)', 'Wild In The Streets'/'No Rest For The Wicked', 'Deep Cuts The Knife', 'The Kids Are All Shakin’', 'Dream On', 'That Day Is Gonna Come', 'Dream On' and 'Good To The Last Drop'. Sean Kelly (CRASH KELLY), Aaron Murray, and myself are the producers. Sean also played some guitar on it along with Brent (Doerner) and Kaleb (Duck). We’re using such diverse instruments as mandolin and fiddle, plus all sorts of different percussion instruments. It’s been great fun so far and we’re very happy with the results. We’re hoping to finish up this week and then it’s off to mastering and then the pressing plant. We’re shooting for a November release."
