ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
All songs written and recorded by AmyBeth Parravano; self-published with Parravano Music,ASCAP and released on her PERIDOT RECORDS label.Original release was on St.George Record label( had a hit song called 'Myrtha' record label Albany,NY). In 1973 on 33 vinyl at the height of the Flower Power generation!The HEAVEN album was reviewed by Columbia Records and offered a release by the now (subsidiary)defunct label Sunshine Records...but was even too provocative in it's content for the times!


Performering at that time for AmyBeth as a young emerging artist were solo gigs in Cambridge coffee houses where she also did cover songs by Laura Nyro,Mimi Farina,Janis Joplin,Melanie Safka,Janis Ian....
AmyBeth had a brief stint at Bethel,NY prior to Woodstock in 1969 and appeared in songwriter's hoots and gatherings.
Her songwriting style was inspired by John Lennon's 'Instant Karma'

Some songs on the album she had intended to pitch to Helen Reddy and Barbara Streisand( MIRROR,WHY DO WE TRY,...)
In 1975, Elvis Presley received a copy of her vinyl 33 HEAVEN album for his collection and rumor has it that he had considered to having wanted to record some of her songs even prior to the release of 'Suspicious Minds'!


Special thanks to Elle Schuster for capturing the photographic image to correlate with the HEAVEN album concept.

Electric Blu

Real music with no electronic hype!
The CD is a whole concept but has several messages in the lyrics and music; search for freedom, fufillment,hope from lonliness...to name just a few

SOZO

Smooth,ethereal,passionate,and HEALING!
CD is so captivating.We wonder why there was never a Broadway musical done about this album;even in it's 'vintage' day?

Dangerous Calm

MMMMMmmmmm.....soothing string ensemble
The string ensemble gives me GOOSEBUMPLES!!!

krissy Wears Cloggs

Sweet,innocent&nasty!
Sweet,innocent&nasty sensuous musical motifs!

Jus'Passin'Thru

The music is very moving and driving...unique sound!
I feel as if I'm on a journey when listening to this CD.It is almost like listening to a story with music to enhance the mode.Perhaps the album would also make a good musical too?

THUS SAID

The lyrics /music simple and so PROFOUND!!
There is only one anoymous quote that comes to mind about the entire CD:

"MAN HAS CONQUERED ALMOST EVERY DANGEROUS ELEMENT IN HUMAN NATURE: EXCEPT; HUMAN NATURE!!"

Plain Rain

Esoteric meanings and colorful intonations!
Colorful music passages with strings....music sets imagery too!

Wild Side

Cool and to -the-MAX!!!
Strong passionate vocals and lyrics that are thought-provoking!!

Lavender Pink

Lyrics with heart and passion!
The lyrics are so profound even with the music appearing to be simplistic in form at times ;but done very effectively!
Songs; MIRROR, LIFE, LONELY ONLY are examples of this...

Japonica

fragrant but bittersweet
close my eyes and I can travel in other dimension...1968-3005!!!!!
