Lita Ford, former Runaway and hot metal Goddess (to some) is about to release 1 album four ways. If ever there was a way to milk a concert Ms Ford has cornered the market. The album will be available in four configurations: a double LP, limited edition CD, standard CD and digital download. WTF? Each, of course, will offer up a different tune or two.
Horrible. I realize record sales are down but really.. to have so many options is just gluttony.
To quote the press release:
Lita Ford has teamed up with producer Gary Hoey and lyricist Michael Dan Ehmig to work on 'Living Like A Runaway'. Together the team invested a lot of time and effort into this kick ass project: "We worked on the lyrics intensively to really give the songs a lot of meaning and that special emotional depth. I think that these are some of the best lyrics ever, period." Ford is referring to numbers such as "Devil In My Head", "Hate", and "The Asylum" which see her bare her soul in a way which she has never done before.
Unlike many albums today, 'Living Like A Runaway' is an album that truly must be heard in its entirety from start to finish. "Listeners shouldn't pick out individual tracks but listen to the full album," says Ford. "It's a fascinating musical journey, inspired by Pink Floyd's 'Dark Side Of The Moon'. I had seen a documentary about 'Dark Side Of The Moon' and it really motivated me to focus on 'Living Like A Runaway' as a whole journey rather just an individual song."
Yes cut and paste is the cheap way out but well, her album isn't. Its a royal scam and to compare yourself ot Floyd is more narcissistic than I can to imagine.
