A Review by Renee Piccitto
Musician and Producer, Pamela Davis has always composed her albums of original written songs. From her recording studio in South Florida, Pamela produces, arranges, and engineers all of her albums. Recently, her ambient instrumental album "Welcome To Tranzotica" has had huge success. With more than one hundred downloads a day for the past nine months; "Welcome To Tranzotica" has taken the cyber music world by storm. In regards to her latest release, "Random Harvest "is her first album that is not composed of original songs". After the success of her previous album "Welcome To Tranzotica", Pamela wanted to record an album of covers as a tribute to the many songs, artists and styles that have help to mold her into the artist that she is today. Many of the song are dear to her heart; a great start to a promising album.
Pamela is quite an accomplished singer, songwriter and producer. In addition to her vocal talents, Pamela rocks out the album with all of her instrumental talent; truly a one woman show! Pamela jams the electric and acoustic guitar, and sitar guitar, bass, piano, keyboards, organ, ukulele, banjolele, and all percussion and (real) drums. Although, the credit on background vocals cannot be given to her alone, Pamela includes many of her promising students through out the album. Listeners can hear additional vocals in many of the songs, some include, Suspicious Minds and Tip Toe Through the Tulips. In addition, Pamela includes some of her instrumental students in Sloop John B.
Random Harvest features many genres of rock throughout the years. From Bluebird by Paul McCartney, to todays Blvd. of Broken Dreams by Green Day, Pamelas arrangements have a unique sound and quality to them. Although this is Pamelas first cover album, she has given one of her best performances to date. Her emotions pour out in the tracks, How Can I Be Sure, and Day After Day. When listening to the album, the listener can sometimes get caught up in the vocals alone. But I strongly urge the listener to focus on the different instrumental variations in the tracks every time you listen to Random Harvest. The instrumentals are extremely complex and defined, but not overpowering; thumbs up to Pamela!
Random Harvest varies from some of Pamelas other album styles. For instance, "Welcome ToTranzotica" features only instrumentals and portrays to the listener pure relaxation. "Random Harvest" is a great album for the true music lover, or for new music lovers! Who knows, the road past "Random Harvest" may lead Pamela to record a volume two. I highly recommend that you pick up a copy today!
