Without A Song 2013

Without A Song

Paul's debut album, Without a Song, is a carefully crafted concept album inspired by his father's unfulfilled dream to have been a professional singer. It is a meticulously culled, exciting, and varied selection of standards on which Paul is accompanied by an array of Chicago's finest musicians. On Without a Song Paul incorporates the beginnings of his love affair with music, when at the age of five, he found his father's homemade 78RPM acetate discs in the attic, heard him singing "That Old Black Magic," and was mesmerized. Little did his father know that this scratchy recording would be Paul's first musical inspiration…and little did he know that it would be restored and used to open his son's debut album 66 years later.

Deluxe Vinyl Edition

After a long wait and much careful preparation, Paul is beyond thrilled to announce this Deluxe Vinyl Edition of Without a Song. For an album whose inspiration was born out of the scratchy homemade 78rpm recordings of his father in 1947, it was always Paul's dream to bring it full circle and onto the magical format of VINYL.

Much effort and care has gone into the mastering, placement, cutting, and pressing of the music on this edition to ensure the very best audio quality possible, spreading the wide grooves over four sides of beautiful, thick 180 gram virgin VINYL.

Pressed by the historic Rainbo Records, with a full color gatefold, a newly designed original label, and including new notes by Grammy Award winning writer Neil Tesser, this edition also comes with a digital download card.

Limited Pressing | Double LP Vinyl Edition | Critically Acclaimed Debut Album Remastered | 180 gram HQ | Audiophile Virgin Vinyl | Full Color Gatefold Jacket | Free Digital Download included | Additional liner notes | Pressed at the historic Rainbo Records Plant
