ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Sounds of Pleasure, the first solo album by Ben Reece is a mix of lyrical honesty and musical uniqueness. Ben says, 'I was born in the 60's, conditioned in the 70's, remodelled in the 80's and rebelled in the 90's, no wonder the album sounds as it does'.

In his formative years, Ben performed with and sessioned for many artists. He even proudly talks of (tongue definitely in his cheek) appearing on children's TV back in the eighties. He appeared on a one-off series called Cheggers Checks It Out, where Keith Chegwin investigated bands trying to break the big time. He also sessioned for The Adventure Babies, famously known for being the last band to sign to Factory Records (of New Order fame) before it famously went bust in the nineties.

Indeed, he says, 'I'd play anything and everything for anyone and everyone'. At the turn of the millennium though, Ben decided to 'look within' to see what was happening there. He explains, 'Although I'd been writing for many years, much of my time was spent playing and writing stuff that 'wasn't me'. Subsequently, I ended up playing everything, including Jazz, Classical, Rap, and I believe that at some point I was playing Wham! Anyway, a couple of years back, ideas kept coming to me that made me sit up and listen. Now you have the best of my best, Sounds of Pleasure.

Ben wrote and produced the album over a two year period, relying on his skills as a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist to produce his unique sound. He notes, '...for me, the album was a kind of cathartic release. Having spent the best part of my musical life soaking up the fruits of other musicians and writers, there had to come a time when it would all come out. Fortunately for me, it was reconstituted in a way that made me get up and listen. Thankfully, other listeners seem to have that opinion of the album too.'

Sounds of Pleasure is a thirteen track album. Each track offers something unique yet something that is common to the whole enterprise, music that is honest and different.

NEW RELEASE: 'The Deal' This new album by Ben Reece will again lift you with inspirational songwriting and creative production. An eleven track album of guitar busting songmaking and dynamic vocal work. Buy it NOW on cdbaby. http://cdbaby.com/cd/benreece2

This boy realy does sound like 5-Star but without the Bra. Nice photo of the new age gardens in Milton Keynes Idaho on the sleeve.

This boy is the new Francis Dossie of Status Low the travellin Willbury of Old London town a Pez thief a Dib Dab Junkie.

The pork pie of pop a ... rolling bone.

"Aint it Strange" ... yes indeed! A back-combed Sonic Poodle of Guitar pedal fuelled pump-Action reaction.

You, my jaundiced equity, May be the proud purchaser of a little piece of heaven ... bit-streaming from the plastic mirror disc that is the "Sound of Pleasure" ... but then again you may prefer James Blunt
