ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This digitally Re-Mastered concept album is a pop rock opera (operock) - based on the life of President Abraham Lincoln and others during his presidency, highlighting - love, struggle, loss, death, conflict and hope. Digital re-mastering has brought to life the enormous detail and rich sound of this tremendous original cast recording.

IN SPITE OF REASON is presented as a sung-through musical portrayal of the personal trials and tribulations of one of the most well known figures in history and others during that period. Although it can be called a pop rock opera, IN SPITE OF REASON can also be labeled as a pop musical drama with rock overtones and intelligent lyrics that touch the heart and mind.

This recording will appeal to those who embrace and enjoy diverse styles of pop and rock music. Fans of actual civil war era music should look elsewhere. The intent of IN SPITE OF REASON is more than merely recording the fiddles, fifes, banjos and drums of civil war songs. Instead it weaves a tapestry of modern music as a sound bed for sung-through storytelling.

This musical work is neither high-brow nor rudimentary. After listening a few times, you too will be singing along with these great songs just as many folks worldwide have already done.

Those interested in history, as well as fans of pop rock concept albums such as Jesus Christ Superstar, Tommy, Evita, theater, story music and even modern musical stage enthusiasts will find IN SPITE OF REASON a refreshing presentation of this famous story and time in history. IN SPITE OF REASON attempts to maintain historical accuracy of events and incorporates words and phrases actually spoken or written by the individuals portrayed.

You get almost 90 minutes of music in 36 songs.
