Get Ready For Shania, Twain That Is

Remember when Shania Twain was hot, hot, hot with the multi-platinum selling album "Come On Over?" 

Not only did it sell 20 million copies (Dr. Evil would have been so proud) on CD. Yes people actually used to buy those too.

It was actually one of my favorite discs, being a music whore I had many favorites. Time to check out this blast from the Shania past!

The Discovery Of Eilleen Twain
CD / DVD combo pack available on February 11

Featuring early footage and songs from Shania Twain, 
when she was still struggling artist Eilleen Twain.
Eilleen Twain got her first break in the late 80s  in Viva Vegas, a legendary Vegas style resort show produced by Brian Ayers at Deerhurst Inn Resort in Ontario, Canada. 

Vegas North brings revealing interviews with former cast members and music veterans of that era, taking you back to Eilleen's roots along with footage of her heartfelt renditions of "Somewhere Out There" and "Somewhere Over The Rainbow."
The Bonus CD, Eilleen Twain: Beginnings 1989-1990 features ten re-mastered songs Shania's early career. The tracks are just what the title indicates: the beginnings - tunes intended to be used as demos to help draw attention to a young and struggling singer who would become a country diva known and loved around the world. 
These are more rock, power pop, and adult contemporary than country, fitting into the late 80s just as they should have when they were recorded.

  1. Hey Michael, I don't know if I ever told you, but I worked with Shania/Eileen at Deerhurst Resort. I must tell you...she always sounded great as her tone was always crystal clear, she always had a wonderful figure and looked stunning, she had multiple cassettes of songs she had written from the start of her career, and always seemed to have a strong sense of where she was going and what kind of artist she wanted to be. I tell you...there were no flies on her. Oh...and she was really nice too.
