Cracking Tunes are delighted to announce the release of a charity album, The Freewheeler Project, an ambitious concept stemming from an original idea by drummer Paul Richards. His father, who sadly passed away from cancer in December 2015, was also a drummer and earlier this year Paul was back at the family home, visiting his mother when he found an old vinyl record that his dad played on. Charles Richards; Paul's late father, was the drummer in a function covers band called Freewheeler and back in 1981 they recorded an album of popular cover songs to sell at their gigs (mostly hotels and holiday camps). It was the only album the band recorded, and Paul was thrilled to find the slightly scratched LP in the spare room. Paul decided it would be a nice idea to re-record the album, with new arrangements, as a charity release for Macmillan Cancer Support. Over 20 musicians were involved on the recording. The album is produced and arranged by Bury St. Edmunds-based producer, Stephen MacLachlan, who has since worked tirelessly to rearrange the songs to not only give them a new spark, but also to accommodate the excessive amount of musicians that Paul has invited to take part in this project. Musicians/vocalists on the record include Myke Clifford, Ruby Florence, members of We Are Sound, Fred's House, Jo Ash, Trevor Jones, Bryan Shore, Edd Evans-Morley, Jess Doherty, Marcel Kunkel, James Duncan and many others. House musicians Clauida McKenzie (bass) and Adam Chinery (guitar) feature highly, with Paul on drums.
