London (February 8, 2011)—Abbey Road’s Studio One recently hosted an orchestral recording session for the upcoming rerelease of the late Kevin Gilbert’s rock opera, The Shaming of the True.
Nashville based producer, engineer and author of the blog/book Sounds Great! Now What? Mark Hornsby went to the iconic studio to record a 48-piece orchestra for “A Long Day’s Life,” which will appear as one of several bonus tracks for a new remastered re-release of The Shaming of the True.
The unifinished rock opera was originally written and performed by Kevin Gilbert, one of the principle figures of Giraffe, Toy Matinee and the original Tuesday Night Music Club musicians/co-writers from Sheryl Crow’s 1993 debut album of the same name. Shaming was originally left unfinished following Gilbert’s untimely demise in 1996.
Additionally, Hornsby worked on tracks for artist Kat Bowser’s Hollywood and Broad album and “In The Cage” from Rewiring Genesis’ version of The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, which Hornsby has worked on with Spock’s Beard drummer/frontman Nick D’Virgilio and which is also due to be re-released in 2011.
