ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Legendary Brill Building-era composer-producer-performer Peter Anders, the voice of The Videls ("Mister Lonely"), The Tradewinds ("New York's A Lonely Town") and The Innocence ("There's Got To Be A Word") has released his first solo album in 38 years!

October 16, 2010 marked the release of the new Peter Anders album, “So Far”. The album is Peter’s first major release as an artist since his last solo album on Family Records in 1972!

The album is being released during a musical retrospective concert celebrating Peter’s 50th Anniversary in Show Business being held at the beautifully restored Park Theatre in Cranston, Rhode Island.

“So Far” is an autobiographical song cycle written mostly over the last five years with his current musical partner, Rhode Island songwriter Rick Bellaire. The album offers nine new original songs as well as re-workings of two of Peter’s classics and a very special cover version of a little-known Goffin & King song.

The songs chronicle the ups and downs of Peter’s life in and out of the music business and was recorded with the help of some very special friends.

Peter and Rick produced the album with one track being produced by Peter’s longest running musical partner, Vini Poncia, who co-wrote the song with Peter and Rick. This Anders & Poncia “reunion” marks their first collaboration in over thirty years.

There are two songs composed with Peter’s dear friend and collaborator, the late great Ritchie Cordell (Mony Mony, I Think We’re Alone Now), which are among the last tunes written by Ritchie before his untimely passing in 2004. Another is the newly completed version of a song begun in 1968 by Peter and Captain Beefheart which sat in the files for over 40 years.

Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, musicians contributing to the project represent friends and cohorts from throughout Peter’s career including Kenny Laguna (producer, composer and keyboard player for Joan Jett & The Blackhearts), legendary psychedelic pioneer Neil Merryweather (Mama Lion), classic girl group The Lovelites (for whom Peter and Vini produced their highly collectible single with Phil Spector back in 1964), and a contingent of Rhode Island musicians including members of Reminisce, FolksTogether and Brass Attack.
