'GAINING IMMORTALITY' is the new Album by North Wales, UK based Songwriter and Musician John Blight and features 18 songs written and recorded over a period of no less than 35 years. The Album songs were, in the main, written by John in the 1970's at the house featured on the cover, 22 Longford Road, Chorlton-cum-Hardy, Manchester, England with inspiration and influences being drawn heavily from Paul McCartney's first home-produced Album in 1970. The simple and direct melodies plus John's trademark 3 part harmonies are at times very Beatle-esque and there is even a George Harrison pastiche ('The Lord') included for good measure. The CD booklet is a clever and original take on the (Realty) Estate Agents details on the property, co-designed with renowned Illustrator Paul Young. Providing the top drawer musical background with John are: Stuart Hastings, Gordon Milton and Les Roberts with contributions from Vanda Rawlins, John Adams, Bob Elliott & Mario Keenan. Basically, 'GAINING IMMORTALITY' is packed with short, simple, old fashioned pop statements with a modern day production sound. It was produced by John in his North Wales, UK studio.
