It's 1989 in Los Angeles - four friends create an album which will only be heard for the first time in 2020.
​About thirty years ago record producer Tommy Vicari (Taste of Honey, Billy Idol, Prince) recorded and produced an album with Frank Musker, Elizabeth Lamers, Jeff Hull and Marty Walsh – four good friends who were hot songwriters, singers, and musicians working at that time in the LA music scene of 1989. They called themselves ‘World Goes Round’. Between them they had either written for, sung with or played on records by a string of major artists and producers like Linda Ronstadt, Queen, Chaka Khan, Brenda Russell, Jeffrey Osborne, John Denver, Supertramp, John Fogerty, Quincy Jones, Arif Mardin, Air Supply – the list is too long to quote in full.
Like Fleetwood Mac and The Eurythmics, there was romance at the heart of the band. Frank and Elizabeth’s relationship started as a love affair before mellowing into a creative force, which yielded the unforgettable hit song they wrote together with Brian May of Queen, “Too Much Love Will Kill You”. The composition was a global hit, winning a coveted Ivor Novello Award in the UK for ‘best song musically and lyrically’.
At Frankie’s home studio in legendary Laurel Canyon (with a 150ft California redwood growing out of the middle of it), World Goes Round wrote and recorded an album's worth of tracks. 'Big House' is the first release. Stay tuned.
