The Derelict's fifth album is coming together nicely. The album, Bergenfield Blues, was written by George Kapitanelis and sung by Terry Reid, except Brandy which was written by our friend and local Irish minstrel Sean Reynolds, the album definitely leans heavily toward Blues/R&B with a couple of acoustic ballads and two instrumentals thrown in to round out the bunch. I am currently working hard at completing this album. We still need to add some female harmonies to 4-5 songs and then we should be ready to mix. The musicians who have played on these songs are as follows; Terry Reid-guitar and vocals, Ed Rainey electric & acoustic guitars, slide guitar, lap steel guitar, vocal harmonies and drums on several tracks, George Kapitanellis-Fender Bass and songs, Galinos Kapitanellis drums, Scott Lauro vocal harmonies and guitar, Rob Clores piano, B-3 Organ, Wurlitzer and Fender Rodes piano, Joe Wilkinson-electric guitar and harmony, and Gary Schwartz-Drums, Danny Pavas-rhythm guitar. It's always a pleasure working with such good hearted and talented musicians. I am currently shopping around for a label/distribution deal for these songs as well as a publicist to help get the word out.
The songs are titled as follows;
Shame To See You Go
All About You
She Told Me
Now That You're Gone
Time Only Tells
December to May
We will be releasing this album on vinyl and CD. I hope to have it all wrapped up and out to the public by late summer/fall of 2019. We have at least 2 more albums worth of good songs to record for future release, so I reckon we will be recording for the next several years to get them all out to our fans. Lots of different styles, r&b, ska, country, and blues, southern rock. We have a bunch of shows coming up in April and in May with Terry, hope to see ya all there. Cheers and God bless you all..
