Rock Candy Records. Friday, March 30, News Feed. Fanfields 2 was released in limited form late inand digital earlier this year. The whole project comprised of some 59 songs, featuring over musicians.
MRR was so impressed with the quality of the Ill Supply The Love - Fanfields - A Fans Tribute To TOTO and production, that the label pitched the idea to further help raise awareness of this project and help raise some additional funds for the charities ALS Foundation, Cancer Fund and the Michael Porcaro Sweet Relief Musicians Fundplus show of the very best performances in a limited edition physical CD release. So impressed Careless Love - Bill Borchers Oregon Jazz Band* - Why Dont We Do This More Often it was deemed two discs would be necessary.
The crowd-funded disc is no longer available, and this release is to be strictly limited to units worldwide. But nothing prepared me for the brilliance of these performances. The songs we all know, but these are genuinely interesting versions of the classics, old and new. It was a struggle to pare the songs back from the 59 recorded, but I think this 2-disc set has the very best on offer.
Fanfields originally came from a decision by a number of members of the Toto mailing list to record Toto songs as a tribute to the band. It quickly became a serious project with musicians contributing from all over the world. Fanfields 1 was released in We felt it's the least we can do to give back something to the band that gave us so much pleasure and inspiration through their albums and live concerts.
Of course, this idea quickly spun into something much larger. Epic even. Almost people musicians, graphic artists, engineers, producers, studio's, etc from all over the world got involved to pay tribute to Toto; especially to Jeff Porcaro, Mike Porcaro and Fergie Frederiksen. Amongst the musicians on the album are two very special guests: Sam Porcaro son of Mike, on bass and Chris Trujillo Toto percussionist. So what do the guys of Toto think of Fanfields 2?
