Music on the Bones… Reimagined 1960s Hits Recorded At Abbey Road Studios.
The first two singles from the upcoming Music on the Bones album were recently released along with exclusive behind-the-scenes video of the inspired recording sessions that took place at the iconic Abbey Road Studios in London. The album and debut tracks, powerful new renditions of Louis Armstrong’s “What A Wonderful World” and Janis Joplin’s “Me and Bobby McGee,” are now available on all music platforms including Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon Music.
Playing on the album are some of the most renowned session musicians from the UK, including the late great Mo Foster on bass, Clem Clempson, formerly a member of Humble Pie, and Dzal Martin on guitar, Ian Thomas on drums, Jim Watson on keys, and percussionist Corrina Silverster. Brilliant vocals are performed by Katie Kadan and Chris Weaver, standouts from The Voice television series in the United States.
The nine-track album also includes such time-honored classics from The Beatles as “Here Comes the Sun,” “Don’t Let Me Down,” and “Let it Be.” Dynamic new versions of Van Morrison’s “Brown Eyed Girl,” The Byrd’s “Turn Turn Turn,” and Leslie Gore’s “You Don’t Own Me” are also featured on the debut album, as is the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin’s “Do Right Woman.”
Inspired by the Music on the Bones book, the tracks are being released by Music on the Bones Records and distributed worldwide by Beatroot.
Raising the cool factor even higher, Producer Marriott Bar-Lev also has the actual 1960s x-ray records for each of the tracks on the new album. These elusive records were created at great risk behind the iron curtain in the 1960s, during a time when music from America was banned in the USSR.

The recording sessions were deemed an experience of a lifetime by everyone involved, with Foster stating, “It was a treat!” Clempson agreed noting that the sessions were extraordinary with, “fantastic musicians, delightful company, and great songs. It doesn’t get any better!”
