Since I released my “The Hunting Of The Snark” in the eighties, and after successful concert versions of the initial form of it, the record and DVD of which are still currently available, I have decided to record the full Two-hour show with all the songs and music links that were in the West End show. This will contain songs which were written after the concept album, in order to develop it as the full theatrical show, such as “The Butchery Waltz”, “The Trouble With You”, “Nursery Pictures’ , “We Know You’re Out There”, “Whatever You Believe” and many others, never before recorded – in additional to existing favourites “As Long As The Moon Can Shine”, “Children Of The Sky” and “The Snooker Song” from the original album/production.
I shall recruit a cast of 10 well-known singer/actors (but cannot identify them yet because I have not yet approached them). I shall record with a full orchestra and top rhythm players. My reputation for recruiting the highest level talent has been demonstrated many times.
But I need your help to finance this ambitious recording, (and other, live events to be announced during this campaign, so do return from time to time for updates). Who knows, it might be the start of a re-launch of a touring production of the piece that is without doubt the centrepiece, to date, of my life’s work.
By pre-ordering your copy of this new recording of The Hunting Of The Snark (Full length theatre-length version) here on PledgeMusic, you’ll also gain access to recording updates, bonus content, video clips and much more.
You are invited to become part of the recording by pre-ordering any of the exclusive items and unique experiences listed below, including an invitation to visit the studio and see the album being recorded, attend a very special launch party, and loads of exclusive memorabilia only available here.
