Melissa Manchester

Mathematics--The MCA Years

Melissa Manchester Mathematics The Mca Years
$21.99 New
 
 




Melissa Manchester announced her independence from Arista Records when she signed to MCA Records after nearly a decade with Clive Davis’ famous label. At Arista, Manchester had established herself as one of the finest singer-songwriters of the era as well as a first-class pop interpreter. At MCA, she reinvented herself further by jumping headfirst into the world of dance-oriented synthpop, Hi-NRG, and new wave. 1985’s Mathematics bore the period’s hallmark of multiple big-name producers: George Duke, Brock Walsh, Robbie Nevil, Trevor Veitch, and executive producer Quincy Jones. Mathematics featured the A-list of Los Angeles’ session musicians like John Robinson, Jerry Hey, Paulinho DaCosta, and Lee Ritenour, plus backgrounds from the Waters family and special guests such as Toto’s Steve Lukather and “Maniac” star Michael Sembello. But the real star of the album was Melissa Manchester’s powerful voice in a new setting of infectious, bubbly dance-pop rhythms. Over the years, Mathematics has become one of Melissa’s most beloved albums, and certainly her most in-demand. But it’s never been released on CD…until now. Real Gone Music and Second Disc Records are proud to present the definitive, 2-CD edition of this classic album. Mathematics: The MCA Years boasts the newly-remastered, full-length original album on Disc One while Disc Two boasts all of the original period remixes, the B-side “So Full of Yourself,” and three outtakes: the never-before-heard “Water from the Moon” and “Skin on Skin,” and the never commercially available “Just One Star Beyond,” written by Melissa and Craig Safan for the sci-fi cult classic The Last Starfighter. And that’s not all. Mathematics: The MCA Years also adds all three versions of the Oscar-nominated “The Promise (I’ll Never Say Goodbye)” from the soundtrack of The Promise for the very first time on CD plus the Al Jarreau duet “The Music of Goodbye” from Out of Africa. This deluxe package has been remastered by Mike Milchner at SonicVision Mastering. It’s topped off with new liner notes by The Second Disc’s Joe Marchese featuring fresh quotes from Melissa. The ‘80s has never sounded so good!
