ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Good Productions is thrilled to announce the world premiere of “Good To Mention,” the collaborative brain-child of Marshall Mandell (Founder of The Good Productions), and longtime friend and bandmate, Mark Will. Their debut album, titled “96,” will be released on digital retailers April 15th.

Heavily influenced by British Progressive Rock from the late 60s, and new-wave, pop-oriented rock from the early 80s, “96” entwines classic rock anthems, power-pop hits, and indie-pop ballads with emotive instrumental interludes that allow for listeners to catch their breath during the whopping 27-track epic.

The title “96” is a tribute to the 96 individuals who tragically lost their lives on April 15th, 1989, during a FA Cup football match between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest at Hillsborough Stadium. Known today as the “Hillsborough Disaster,” it remains the worst tragedy in British sporting history. A detailed recollection of what transpired, including the ensuing media response and attempted police cover-up, can be found via the Hillsborough Justice Campaign.

The album, broken into 4 segments, uses multi-perspective storytelling to encapsulate the array of emotions leading up to, during, and after the disaster. The first segment, titled “Innocence,” portrays the beauty and joy of everyday life (Missing Stockings, Fifteen), and the excitement of fans leading up to the match (Next To Graham, One Day). The second segment, “Tragedy,” imagines heartbreak and anguish as told through the eyes of victims (The 96, Let Me Out) and their loved ones (The Sum Of It All), as well as the perspective of former Chief Superintendent David Duckenfield (Duckenfield, The Fix Is On). The third segment, “Redemption,” embodies the families grieving process (Tears Falling, I Can Never Go Home), and the Liverpool community’s lengthy fight to seek justice for the Hillsborough victims (We Shall Overcome, Tell The Judge The Truth). The final segment, “Hope,” reveals the families resolve as Duckenfield is finally indicted, and their healing process begins (Love is On The Way, This Is Christmas, Here’s to).

Victims of the Hillsborough Disaster and their families finally received a glimmer of hope on January 14th, 2019, when after 30 years, David Duckenfield officially began trial for 95 counts of manslaughter by gross negligence. In support of these families and their enduring struggle, 5% of all proceeds from the first year of sales will be donated to the Hillsborough Families Support Group, with an additional 5% being donated to The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, a cause near and dear to Marshall’s heart.

While the vast majority of “96” was written, performed, recorded, arranged, and mixed by Marshall and Mark, several Liverpool artists made significant contributions that helped give life to the album. Scott Whitley (Bassist for “Big Country”), and Scott Daivd (Studio musician and guitarist, Parr Street Studios) can be heard on multiple tracks, and Callum Williams (current touring bass player for Queen) and Emily Morrison both assisted in recording the cover of Roger and Hammerstein’s Liverpool F.C. anthem, “You’ll Never Walk Alone.” On collaborating with local Liverpool artists for such a heart-rending topic, Mark says “on an emotional and spiritual level, it speaks to the connection we all have as humans, and the strength that love can provide to get us through the most difficult times in our lives. Our hope is that this album might be a way to give closure for some people on this episode of their life.”

Mastered by U.S. powerhouse Bernie Grundman (Steely Dan, Prince, Michael Jackson), with additional help from London’s legendary Abbey Road Studios (The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Radiohead), “96” is sure to elicit a powerful listening experience.
