Jimmy Cricket says he has tried to give people who buy his latest musical CD “a few surprises”.
Light & Shade was officially released on 1 February and is available for £6 at www.jimmycricketshop.co.uk and at Jimmy’s live shows.
The inside sleeve has the following message from the famous entertainer, in which he talks about the history behind the CD, which features a mixture of serious and comedy songs.
It’s me Jimmy, come closer!
I was asked to write something for this sleeve, so I thought I would do something off the cuff. Get it!
These are the songs I’ve written and performed at my little ‘Jimmy and friends’ nights which I’ve done at St Vincent’s parochial hall in Rochdale over the last few years.
When I do shows I like to give the audience a few surprises and I’ve tried to do the same with this CD.
Sure there’ll be comedy songs that you would associate with Jimmy Cricket, but I’ve also thrown a few serious ones in too! So whether you’re listening in the car, at home, or walking along with your earphones, I hope there is something there for you.
I’d like to mention two people who‘ve been the bedrock of this CD.
Firstly, musical arranger David Carter, whose god given talent enables him to breathe life into my tunes and words.
And record producer Chris Warsop, who has worked tirelessly and painstakingly over the last six months in making sure we had a quality product at the end.
To them I am eternally grateful, as indeed to you for buying it.
