Jeff Scott Soto - "Don't Let It End" (ft. Dino Jelusick & Howie Simon)

You say the end of time
Is coming far too near
My love for life is torn
In vain through all the years
What's the answer to the question
That we have been searching for
Can you tell?

Don't want to fall apart
Before we have a chance
to try again, don't let it end

I tried so hard to make
It right for you and I
Your sacred promises
Have all become a lie
Is this your idea of destiny?
'Cause if it is, just set me free

You cannot fool me
With your stories being told
My god, it brings me down
I feel I'm growing old
Is this your idea of destiny?
'Cause if it is, just set me free

No, please don't end it now,
There is so much more we can do, you know
Don't let it end, don't let it end,
Don't let it end

Let's gather what we had
And build it up again
It used to be so good
Oh please don't let it end
No, don't let it end

Don't wanna fight you
Don't wanna argue
No no no don't let it end
Don't want no broken promises
Don't wanna fall apart again
Don't let it end!

Ο δίσκος του Jeff Scott Soto "The Duets Collection, Vol.1"
Μία ενδιαφέρουσα ιδέα υλοποιεί ο Jeff Scott Soto. Κάνει αναδρομή σε τραγούδια που τραγούδησε στο παρελθόν (στην "πλούσια" καριέρα του) και τα επαναηχογραφεί. Και που είναι το πρωτότυπο και το ενδιαφέρον; Θα ρωτήσετε.

Στο ότι συνεργάζεται με άλλους τραγουδιστές όπως ο Mats Leven, ο Eric Martin, ο Erik Mårtensson, ο Johnny Gioeli, ο Dino Jelusick, κλπ. Κάθε τραγούδι κι ένα ντουέτο. Ο δίσκος τιτλοφορείται "The Duets Collection, Vol.1" (υπονοώντας ότι θα υπάρξει και συνέχεια) κι αναμένεται στις αρχές Οκτωβρίου.

Ο Jeff Scott Soto δεν νομίζω ότι χρειάζεται ιδιαίτερες συστάσεις. Αμερικανός τραγουδιστής ενεργός από τις αρχές της δεκαετίας του ογδόντα μέχρι και τις ημέρες μας. Στην "πλούσια" δισκογραφία του βρίσκουμε -μεταξύ άλλων- τα φωνητικά σε albums των Yngwie Malmsteen's Rising Force (στους κλασικούς δίσκους "Rising Force", "Marching Out"), Kryst the Conqueror, Talisman, Axel Rudi Pell, Sons of Apollo, Panther κλπ.

Στην παρόυσα ανάρτηση ο Soto ερμηνεύει - διασκευάζει τον ύμνο "Don't Let It End" από τον "μυθικό" δίσκο των Yngwie Malmsteen's Rising Force "Marching Out" που κυκλοφόρησε το μακρινό 1985. Μαζί του στα φωνητικά (ντουέτο) είναι ο Dino Jelusick [βλ. Whitesnake (πλήκτρα και δεύτερα φωνητικά), ex-Animal Drive κλπ], ενώ την κιθάρα (ως... αντί-Malmsteen) έχει αναλάβει ο Howie Simon (βλ. Stryper, ex-Alcatrazz, ex-Talisman, Tesla, Jeff Scott Soto κλπ)...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Acclaimed rock vocalist Jeff Scott Soto has announced the release of his next solo project, "The Duets Collection, Vol.1" on October 8, 2021. For this album, Soto wanted to do a career retrospective and re-record some of his favorite songs from his storied career, but with the twist that he invited friends to join him on duets of said songs.

Today, fans can get their first taste of the album with the release of 'Mysterious' (originally performed by Soto with Talisman) where he is joined by Eric Martin (Mr Big). Using the down time from his normally relentless touring activity due to the worldwide pandemic, renowned vocalist Jeff Scott Soto decided to create a very special album which pays tribute to some of the classic songs he has recorded over the course of his storied career.

But, rather than simple re-records, he wanted to make the album something special, unique. So, not only did he re-record these songs with his musical friends Jorge Salan, Howie Simon (guitars), Leo Mancini (guitars), Tony Dickinson (bass) and Edu Cominato (drums), but he called in some of his fellow rock friends / vocalists to create a unique DUETS album.

With the likes of Erik Mårtensson (Eclipse, W.E.T.), Eric Martin (Mr. Big), Johnny Gioeli (Hardline), Deen Castronovo (Revolution Saints, Journey), Nathan James (Inglorious), Russell Allen (Symphony X), Renan Zonta (Electric Mob), Dino Jelusick, Mats Leven (Candlemass, TSO), BJ (Spektra, SOTO), and Aliro Netto (Shaman, Queen Extravaganza), this is an amazing international affair.

The track listing alone will surely make any JSS fan excited, much less hearing the final product. Where can you get such an amazing list of singers and songs all in the same place? Jeff says, "It was a DREAM to cast these voices and I am so amped for you to hear the results...

Jeff Scott Soto is a man that needs virtually no introduction to any discerning melodic rock fan. Jeff launched his career at the young age of 18 years old in tremendous fashion as the lead vocalist for Yngwie Malmsteen’s debut album, "Rising Force" and the sophomore album, “Marching Out”.

That first step into the spotlight has led to a career that has seen Jeff play and work with an outstanding number of artists and genres from the AOR of Eyes and Takara, to the hard rock and metal of Talisman, Axel Rudi Pell, Soul SirkUS, and of course, his time with the legendary Journey.

Jeff has also maintained a solo career over the past decades, while also recently joining up with the progressive metal supergroup Sons of Apollo.»
