Progressive Rock keyboardist Lisa LaRue announces a special day at this beginning of the monumental year, 2012. On the first Tuesday of the year, January 3, 2012, LaRue will release two CD’s.
First on the slate is a remastered, redesigned package of the 2008 release, “Transformation 2012.” The disc includes a previously unreleased ‘bonus track.’
“The beginning of 2012 affords the perfect opportunity to bring this album back to the attention of the music community. ‘Transformation 2012’ follows the concept held by the Mayan elders and others that this year brings many transformational events to the world, including the story line of the end of a long war, which we are currently seeing,” stated LaRue.
While many people see the end of the Mayan calendar on December 21, 2012 as ‘doom and gloom’ and the possible end of the world, the Native elders teach that it simply is a transitional period where the world as we know it changes into a ‘new’ world existence.
The second release iof Prog Tuesday is “The Lisa LaRue Collection” which is a compilation of tracks from LaRue’s previous albums over the last 16 years, including “That Ol Sofkee Spoon,” “Ama,” “Transformation 2012,” “World Class” and “Fast and Blue.”
“With each CD release, more and more people have become aware of my music and concept albums, and are intrigued. Desiring to hear previous work, the idea of a ‘collection’ of the catalog seemed a logical release,” LaRue stated. The CD contains samplings of her solo work as well as work with musicians such as Native American flutist John “Yafke” Timothy, John Payne (Asia featuring John Payne) and Michael Sadler (Saga). It also includes the track “256 Leagues Above New Orleans,” nominated for a Hollywood Music Award as “Best Instrumental Song of the Year” in 2008, and work with her band Lisa LaRue 2KX, nominated as “Best Instrumental Artist of the Year” at the 21st Annual Los Angeles Music Awards.
