Dave Mason is treating his longtime fans to a re-recorded version of his first album, Alone Together.
The album is available today.The re-do is called Alone Together...Again, Mason says he decided to re-do the album because he "hated his voice."
Dave says,"I was just younger then. I was 22 when I did it ... 23. I mean my voice is so much better now. But the tracks just came out better."
Originally released in July 1970, the classic album contains Mason classics like "Only You Know and I Know," "Shouldn't Have Took More Than You Gave," "World in Changes" and "Sad Deep as You."
Mason added, "It’s a more accurate representation of what I think I sound like. And, of course, with the years comes a maturity and knowing in my voice that I think gives the songs an all new depth. It may have taken me 50 years, but I am now truly satisfied with all of the songs and I really count this as one of my most satisfying artistic achievements."
Alone Together...Again will also be available for digital download and streaming on December 4th.
In celebration, Dave will be hosting a Q&A on Facebook Live this evening at 6pm (Central).
Bonnie Bramlett, who provided back-up vocals on the original recording of Alone Together will join Dave on the Q&A.
Mason is also working on a memoir, Only You Know and I Know, a song on Alone Together. It will be out in 2021.
