British pop legend Vince Hill to release long-lost recordings on his FINAL Original Album!

I am thrilled to reveal here the track listing and finished cover sleeve artwork for my upcoming new album ‘The Lost Sessions: 1969-1991’.

This project came about after a surprise discovery in my lock up of an old suitcase packed full of lost studio session tapes! I was amazed to find inside many unreleased recordings which I had completely forgotten about. Some of these were even almost 50 years old!

‘The Lost Sessions’ is a very special project for me as it will be the final original album of my music career. My sound engineer Ted Carfrae (TCM Music Services​) has been extremely busy over these last few months transferring, restoring and re-mastering all of the album’s recordings which are now sounding amazing & ready for release!

What I am most proud of is that half of the songs featured on this album originate from the wonderful songwriting partnership I had with my former musical director Ernie Dunstall (who I worked with from the late 1960s on many of my records, BBC shows & concert tours).

I have also included on this album several piano/vocal demo recordings which will give you an intimate insight into how we begin a newly penned song (before it is fully orchestrated in the studio).

‘The Lost Sessions’ will be out by the end of October 2018! I will be premiering some of the unreleased recordings soon on my YouTube channel with rare Super 8 home movie footage of me from the 1960s & ‘70s.

Yours,
VINCE HILL
