Live cd and dvd!
Frontiers Records is pleased to announce the release of the SEVENTH KEY “Live In Atlanta” CD and DVD on november 7th 2005.
SEVENTH KEY is the successful band / project put together by KANSAS bass player and singer Billy Greer together with his former STREETS bandmate Mike Slamer.
The idea of a live album and of a DVD came when Frontiers Records President, Serafino Perugino, got a look on the band's videos for the songs “An Ocean Away“ and “Love Train“; songs originally included on the SEVENTH KEY second album “The Raging Fire”.
He therefore approached director Nicole Slamer, Mike’s daughter, to shoot a live DVD for SEVENTH KEY. On May 23rd the recording for the live concert DVD/CD was completed. For the first time in almost 22 years Mike Slamer performed live again. The recording was done at Crossover Entertainment Group Inc. in Atlanta, in front of selected friends, invited guests and families.
Joining the duo Greer/Slamer live on stage are former STRANGEWAYS singer Terry Brock on guitars and background vocals, David Manion on keyboards and drummer Pat McDonald. Guest appearances came from KANSAS violinist Robby Steinhardt and Billy’s brother Johnny Greer, both joining the band for a breathtaking acoustic version of the song “Forsaken“.
Featuring rousing live performances of songs from the band's previous two studio albums, SEVENTH KEY's first ever live concert DVD/CD is a true enrichment for any Melodic Rock collection. Also included is bonus studio material for the cd (including the only collaboration between Billy Greer and former KANSAS mastermind Kerry Livgren on “Remember You Well”) and 3 bonus videos and exclusive interviews and behind the scenes footage on the DVD.
The live cd tracklisting is as follows:
The Sun Will Rise (click to hear an mp3 sample); An Ocean Away; It Should Have Been You; Sin City; Always from the Heart (click to hear an mp3 sample); Forsaken; You Cross the Line; The Kid Could Play; Only the Brave (click to hear an mp3 sample); When Love is Dying; Winds of War; Cold Hearted Woman; The Storm Rages On (bonus studio track); Remember You Well (bonus studio track); Love Train (bonus studio track).
The DVD, apart from the entire concert footage, includes bonus music video for “Always From The Heart”, “An Ocean Away”, “Love Train” , interviews with band members and a photo gallery. The DVD will exclusively be release in NTSC Region free format.
