NEW DOUBLE ALBUM!: Best Of The Leaping Lizards - Waltzing Through The Years

Best Of The Leaping Lizards - Waltzing Through The Years

by The Leaping Lizards

2014 is the band's 30th anniversary. Marking this occasion is the release of our brand new double album, covering selected works resurrected from dusty boxes, chronologically representing 1984 to 2014. This album highlights a seamless evolution from raw to round, it has captured the syncopated tonal modulations, embedded within the band from its very beginnings... in defiance of changing membership over the years. It recognises and names the efforts of no less than 13 members and 17 regular others, for their invaluable contribution to recordings, live performances and continued support, during this 30 year journey. It is effectively a "Best Of" all our other albums combined into one. If you are looking for a good mix of the band through the years...this is the album for you. 30 tracks, 30 years, $30...(that's $1 per year!)

This album would have to be described as a definitive point in our career. After 27 years as a band when this album was recorded, we really were "Shedding Our Skin" and finding our place in the modern music landscape. This collection of work has been met with widespread acceptance (relief almost) from our faithful followers and friends. It dominated the 2011 Golden Fiddle Awards Finalists nominations in 3 categories - Best Band; Best CD & Best Original Composition with the band taking home the top award of Lifetime Achievement and contribution to the industry. The masterful skill of fellow instrumentalist and producer Michael Fix, shines through and we're collectively really proud of this album. In various combinations we've all written or contributed to nine of the eleven tracks and we've presented fresh arrangements to a couple of much loved heritage pieces. A beautiful ballad from Graeme Connors and Mike Kerin is also included, which we've performed for many years. We truly hope you enjoy this album as much as we do. Thank you.
