ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
GEMS UNEARTHED is the second PLANET 3 album and the songs are written and recorded by the stellar song writing trio Jay Graydon/Clif Magness/Glen Ballard AKA Planet 3. They wrote these songs during the same period of time as the first Planet 3 album - MUSIC FROM THE PLANET, which is also available here at CD BABY.

It is an album that indeed lives up to its title! The music style is adult contemporary pop with many strong melodies - power ballads mixed with tough 80s synth rock, in the spirit of TOTO, CHICAGO and the like.

Jay Graydon is a twice Grammy awarded and 12 times nominated Los Angeles top songwriter, recording artist, guitarist, producer, arranger, engineer, and more. His production credits include e.g. mega stars such as Air Supply, George Benson, Al Jarreau, DeBarge, El DeBarge, Sheena Easton, Art Garfunkel, Manhattan Transfer, Johnny Mathis, Patti LaBelle, Lou Rawls, Kenny Rogers, and Dionne Warwick just to name a few, and many of the more than 200 songs he has written are included on Gold, Platinum and Multi-Platinum selling albums.

This second PLANET 3 album opens up a jewel case of music treasures. There are fun and raw uncut diamonds with major energy like PUSH IT IN, blended with glowing precious stones like the beautiful ballad TONIGHT YOU'RE MINE.

"Old" Planet 3 fans will love it and be happy that the second Planet 3 album is finally released and "new" Planet 3 fans will find this album to be a rare gem to discover.

Jay says in the liner notes...

"The three of us were a song writing team before we became Planet 3. We wrote songs for Al Jarreau, DeBarge, films, etc. We simply had too many songs to choose from so these were most likely for a follow up album so about 15 years later, here is the follow up album! The bottom line is raw energy similar to a live real time performance!"

This sure is ear candy for quality music lovers!!! Published by Noted For The Record (ASCAP), Magnified Music (ASCAP) and Aerowave (ASCAP). Released on Sonic Thrust Records.

I have listened Mr. Graydon since Airplay...
There is a lot of great compositions. The guitar playing is unbelieveble.I`d like to say that the singing parts could`nt be better...but the machines(dropped out the fifth star from me). Anyway-this kind of music from this kind of mucisians will always get it`s place where it`s needed.Thank You Misters!

Tony Onstad

There are a few lumps of coal in there as well...
For the most part,when producer/session masters like Jay Graydon attempt something more commercial,or "radio-friendly",such as the Planet 3 project,it's an idiomatic shift in gears that usually ends up in a roadside wreck.The songs "Tonight You're Mine" and "I Don't Want To Say Goodnight" are top-drawer AOR;as for the rest of "Gems Unearthed",being a major Graydon fan,I'll humbly forego comment.

Jay Graydon has putting together some old demotracks, unreleased songs and remastered them to this Planet 3 production. Amazing that after 15 years the songs has a nerv and are in this great shape. For you who likes Graydon's earlier releases this is one you must have in your collection.

Tom

A great cd..it`s a shame we had to wait so many years for the 2.nd. one!

Jan

Like going back to the eighties with cutting edge production
What a dream...a new release that sounds like something long out of print with a $70 price on Ebay. If you were alive during the eighties buy this and remember.
