Vocal CD Reissue of the Month - "Annette Peacock: I'm The One"

Vocal CD Reissue of the Month
Annette Peacock: "I'm The One" (RCA/Ironic) 1972/2011

One of the most intriguing albums I've heard in all my life. First CD issue ever! (thanks to Annette herself, who licensed the album from Sony/BMG and decided to reissue it on her own Ironic label). 500 signed & numbered limited edition with 6 panel jacket, 12 page booklet containing lyrics & 9 colour photos. It's available only on the net, and can be ordered directly from www.annettepeacock.com or from a few other on-line stores such as www.cdbaby.com and www.cduniverse.com

Featuring: Annette Peacock (vocals, acoustic & electric pianos, synthesizers, electric vibes), Tom Cosgrove (electric guitar), Stu Woods (electric bass), Rick Marotta (mispelled Morotta, drums), percussion masters Dom Um Romão (mispelled Dom Un Romao), Airto Moreira, Orestes Vilato & Barry Altschul, a horn section comprised of Perry Robinson (clarinet), Mark Whitecage (alto sax) & Michael Moss (tenor sax), plus special guest appearances by Mike Garson (piano & organ), Paul Bley (piano & synths) and Annette's daughter, Apache Rose Peacock (piano).

Produced by Annette Peacock & Bob Ringe
Arranged by Annette Peacock
24bit remix from the analog source by Annette Peacock & engineered by Todd Levine
Recorded live (in mostly one take including the synthesized vocals!) by Gus Mossler at RCA Studios, NYC, in 1971, and originally released in 1972.

An historic reissue, that because it wasn't part of the synthesizer, electro-acoustic, country-rock, prog-rock, jazz-rock fusion, ecm music, world music, jam bands movements, but predated them, remains timeless, and uniquely perverse. Included in Wire Magazine's list of the top 100 albums that shook the world!Containing songs that influenced or were covered by: David Bowie, Mick Ronson, Chrissie Hynde, Pat Metheny, Prince, Al Kooper, Morcheeba etc. And impossible to be categorized.
