ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Godfrey Townsend is a New York based musician who has worked with many of rock music’s most influential names.
In the past decade alone, he has been recruited to work with:
John Entwistle, bass guitarist of The Who
Jack Bruce, bass guitarist/vocalist of Cream
Dave Mason, guitarist/vocalist of Traffic
Alan Parsons, producer/engineer/recording artist

He has also worked with Ann Wilson from Heart, Todd Rundgren, Christopher Cross, Mark Farner, Joey Molland from Badfinger, Denny Laine from Wings, Spencer Davis, Mitch Ryder, Billy Squier, Terry Sylvester of The Hollies, Felix Cavaliere…just to name a few of Classic Rock’s royalty…

Taking influences and inspiration from such guitar greats as Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, David Gilmour, Robin Trower and more recently, Joe Satriani and Steve Vai, he has compiled a CD of soulfully passionate guitar compositions from several decades of demos…

”I am very excited and pleased with how good the final masters of these tunes have turned out…it would not have come to fruition without the masterful help of my musical partner, Steve Murphy…he played drums on all the tracks as well as engineered, mixed, produced and composed with me on this…other members of The Alan Parsons Live Project, John Montagna and Manny Focarazzo (bassist And keyboardist, respectively) lent their extraordinary talents to the recording…my son Joseph, who is a fine bassist and keyboardist, also makes a special appearance…Bill Murphy, (Steve's brother) masterfully co-engineered the final mixes at his studio in Florida...I couldn’t have hoped for a better finished product than what I have here…every song is another exciting journey that leads into the next track…if you are a fan of Classic Rock music and guitar playing, I think you will really enjoy this…please feel free to give me your review of it with any suggestions or requests you may have for what will definitely be a soon-to-follow-up 2nd CD”…please enjoy, Godfrey Townsend

Way to go Godfrey!!
I have a 6 CD player in my car and this CD is a staple, I never take it out.
I also have it on my Ipod........Love this CD!!

Chris Padgett

Incredible!
Godfrey Townsend has put out one of those CDs that just jumps right up into the "Top Ten CDs You'd Want On A Deserted Island" list. This is a magnificent, eclectic mix of beautiful crying guitar melodies and electrifying rock riffs that will make you press the repeat button on your player and just let it go...infinitely. A magnanimous work of purity for his first solo outting, and I cannot wait for more!

Christine

EASY JOURNEY TO OTHER PLANETS is a musical masterpiece!I've seen Godfrey townsend several times with Alan Parsons Live Project where I was first introduced to his true talent as he traversed his way through the awesome licks of one of rock musics most tasteful axemen,Ian Bairnson.And now we can enjoy Godfrey's own guitar magic.Great job!!to everyone else aboard this awesome cd..Steve Murphy,John Montagna,Manny Focarazzo(APLP),Steve's brother and Godfrey's son.See You in Kansas City soon!!

Alessio Perardi

Fantastic CD
A great CD, the musicians are fantastic and guitar work is a unreal. I've listened to it numerous times and it's still really fresh to me.

Tina Carlson

Impressive work from an impressive musician
From its first note to its last note, this CD really delivers what it promises. Filled with inventive and skilled guitar playing, informed by passion and spirituality that shine through in every track, this disc was well worth the wait.
Many classic rock guitar influences can be heard here from Gilmour to Townshend to Beck to Clapton to Harrison, Rundgren and beyond, but Godfrey's personal stamp is always at the fore. Can't wait to play it again!!

Guido

Brilliant.
A phenominal collection. Not a copy of other classic rockers. Whole new ideas. Very fresh. All the musicians are amazing. The drums blow me away as well as the guitar.
Definately one of my (stranded on a)desert island discs.
