“3 Song Demo” – Anne Dorsey

With the holidays now over. I took a small break from my popular Flashback Friday posts. But with the outcry by so many of you, they are now back with a vengeance!

Now, not all of the Flashback morsels presented will include me. This week’s Flashback is an example of just that. The Anne Dorsey Demo Project.

Anne and I met in high school (John Glenn High, Norwalk California) in 1985 in the Children’s Theater class. Anne had great talent. She could act, dance, sing and play the piano. In fact, she was really the first person I knew who could actually play the piano.

It was a great time to be in high school and to experiment with music. Anne and I did a number of shows together. Many of which I am sure will be featured in future Flashback Friday posts. So keep an eye out!

We played the piano together and got to infuse our music into a number of theater projects. She even gave me the moniker “King of the Piano”. Ok, well it might not have been complimentary, but hey, that’s all water under the bridge (whatever that means).

My post this week as I mentioned is the Anne Dorsey Demo Project. It was Anne who actually gave me this demo many many years ago. It featured her singing three original tunes written by a friend of hers. I believe he did all the production and also sings lead and harmony on the demo songs with Anne. (I’m sure Anne if you are reading this you can send me any info you may have on the project so I can update this Flashback correctly.)

I have kept this demo all these years because I thoroughly enjoy Anne’s performance and appreciated her friend’s songwriting and production skills. Putting a demo together is a lot of work. You really have to believe in your music to put forth this type of effort. And frankly, these songs are catchy!!

I think this recording had to have been produced somewhere in the mid to late ’80s. So production wise it’s a pretty good demo. Now the titles of each of the songs are still in question. I am really just using my best guess because the demo tape had no titles or credits listed.

So I hope you all enjoy this week’s Flashback Friday.
