Local Hero Musical - The Official Release
« on: March 13, 2019, 01:16:09 PM »
I asked Guy about the release of the cast cd of the musical and this is what Guy asnwered me:


It won’t be released in conjunction with this run. It will most likely be associated with the London run in 2020 but there are no dates as I haven’t started recording it yet. (I’m not including the demo’s we did)


So the musical, even the cast version, won't be released until summer next year...

That means that people attending will be the only ones who will listen to the MK songs, unless people attending record the perfomances and share them with the rest of fans, as we use to do with concerts...

In early April I will bring with me my digital recorder and will try it. I hope the rest of people attending do the same with their, if possible, of course.
You might get lucky, now and then

Interesting answer.
The last two sentences of Guy's answer indicate that Guy is making a cast recording.
Which could mean, that it won't be a MK recording.

Sounds like Mark is fed up with it all already.

it is to be feared these precious demos end up in the graveyard and we end up listening to cast recordings with another guitarist…
Just imagine the original soundtrack of Local Hero with another guitarist...

It is unimaginable!    ::)     I was really hoping for a studio recording with MK and band with guests, such as Karen Matheson.  Was it really too much to hope for?   :think

If a cast album will be released to coincide with London 2020 shows... Imagine when an album with mk and his musicians would be released, if it is...

These recordings will be in the same scrapyard as the Madrid 2001 recordings etc etc never to be seen again I'll bet.

On a positive note, I just watched the Scottish local news and there was an article about the musical with a couple of snippets of music.  Did a quick search of STV News but nothing there yet online.

mc

"I think that the most of us here are praying for the new Local Hero album containing the new songs sung and played by Mark. Otherwise, if a "cast" album without Mark will be released at the end, why don't you consider to release also a special limited edition of the album with the MK demos on a bonus disc ?

I wonder what Guy will say

Many DS / MK concerts were recorded and never appeared, but studio material is something else
