Fanfields 2 – Digital release, December 8th, 2017
On December 8th, 2017 the digital edition of the critically acclaimed “Fanfields 2”, TOTO Tribute album will be released on SIMS-O-RECORDS.
Almost 140 people (musicians, graphic artists, engineers, producers, studio’s, etc) from all over the world pay tribute to TOTO, especially to Jeff Porcaro, Mike Porcaro and Fergie Frederiksen, by having recorded really cool versions of TOTO songs.
Amongst the musicians on the album are two very special guests: Sam Porcaro (son of Mike, on bass) and Chris Trujillo (TOTO percussionist).
When compared to the physical (now out of print) version of the Fanfields 2 album, this digital release has 5 new tracks: On The Run, Taint Your World, The Other Side, Running Out Of Time and Take My Hand.
