Now & Then (2016)

Tolle, Christian (Fast Ball, LC15471)

The fourth C.T.P. release Now & Then is a very special one: Christian revisited some of his best tunes from the past and re-recorded them: "Changed", "Taking a risk" and "87 99" from the album "Better Than Dreams" (2000) and "Enemy", "The real thing", "On and on" and "Back to the moon" from the album "The Real Thing" (2005). He also added a bunch of great new tracks and wrapped everything in a very organic production.

As a result, the musical range is widespread: Rock bangers like "Dumped", stomping Rock Blues like "Magic Pudding" or West Coast hightlights like "Taking A Risk" or "Hard To Find" combine the whole array of handmade classic rock. Simply put: pure variety, powerful songs.This is simply his best release so far! A wide variety of classic rock tunes, from hard pushing uptempo tracks to catchy AOR anthems.
