Steve & Tony Christie 

In 2005 I was involved with the Tony Christie album 'The Definitive Collection' (released by Universal Music). I was Record Producer / Song writer and worked on all the new material that was presented along with a selection of Tony's many hit recordings. The album became one of the biggest sellers of 2005 and was  a BPI multi platinum award winner.

 

Featured song : 'Almost in love' written by : Christie / Mainwaring / Wilson. This song also features on The Tony Christie Love Collection album.

Quote : 

"Steve came to my rescue when I had to record four new tracks for my Album " The Definitive collection ", which went on the sell 750,000 copies in the UK alone. We had only just over a week to record, mix and master them.
Without Steve's help, this couldn't have been possible."  Tony Christie - 2014

  

I have continued working with Tony up to the present time on various projects and have a great respect and admiration for him and that amazing voice.


When I was working on the 'Mesrine The Musical' concept recording my first choice for the voice of the French President was always Tony, because in the 1970's he had sung the role of Agustin Magaldi on Andrew Lloyd Webber / Tim Rice's original Evita album (one of my favourite modern musicals). I hoped he would be interested in my concept musical project, as it had a similar political and dark edge.

We had a chat, Tony said "yes" and we recorded his vocal parts quickly (that's normally one perfect take in Tony's case!)


You can find previews of Tony's performance in the 'Mesrine The Musical' section.
