Ken Tobias - Pangaea
Released only to Radio Date:1993
Label:Pangaea Music (Radio Sampler) - (PMH CD-1001)
This was Ken's first studio recording in almost 10 years and was created primarily for promotion and to stimulate radio play. Pangaea Music wanted to showcase both new songs
"When you first enter Reaction Studios in Toronto, the first thing you notice is a painting. In it, a man dressed in a court jester's suit with a nose like an eagle's beak is proudly singing on a stage lit purple. …One wintery evening…I noticed the artist's signature: Ken Tobias. I asked someone in the studio if it was the Ken Tobias, the same 70's MOR pop star whose hit singles I had once tried to learn from K-TEl albums as a teen on my Degas Stratocaster guitar, songs like Give A Little Love and Stay Awhile. I learned that it was indeed the real Tobias. I asked if he was still alive."
– Dave Bidini, The Rheostatics, The Toronto Star.
On a daily basis throughout North America, the odds are good that somewhere classic radio will be playing a Ken Tobias penned song. Most likely it will be the 1971 million selling hit "Stay Awhile" recorded by The Bells. In Canada the odds are even better since the pool of radio "gold, written and recorded by Ken Tobias, is greater. Songs like "I Just Want To Make Music", "Dream #2", "Lady Luck", "Every Bit Of Love", "Give A Little Love", and "New York City", everday bring smiles to the faces of "boomers" and "X-ers". Although it has been some time since Ken has released an album, he has not bee creatively inactive. As a visual artist, well over a hundred of his paintings hang in Canadian homes. His credits for composing for film and television include award winning documentaries and he remains an incredibly prolific songwriter. This CD contains six new songs written, produced and performed by Ken Tobias. We think that they are some of the best songs of his career. The Pangaea Music House is proud to provide this opportunity for you to rediscover one of Canada's foremost musical talents. Enjoy! …and stand by for more to come from Ken Tobias.
