Description

Robinsongs is very pleased to announce the release of another 2CD set, featuring four Rodney Franklin albums: "Learning To Love" / "Marathon" / "Skydance" / "It Takes Two".

Born on September 16th, 1958 in the city of Berkeley, young Rodney was drawn to music when he was three. He started piano lessons at six years old when he attended the Washington Elementary School. The school's principal was a man called Herb Wong, who, when he wasn't teaching music, was a noted US jazz journalist and radio DJ. Given his close connection with the jazz world, Wong often invited professional musicians to play in school assemblies. It was on one of these occasions that young Rodney Franklin got a chance to sit next to jazz great, pianist Oscar Peterson, and watch him play. It was a moment that changed his life.

"Learning To Love" released in 1982 kicks off with the singles 'Enuff Is Enuff' and 'That's The Way I Feel 'Bout Your Love'. The second album contained on Disc One is "Marathon", which features the single 'Stay On In The Groove'..Disc Two features the albums "Skydance" and "It Takes Two". The stand-out tracks are 'Look What's Showing Through' and Rodney's interpretation of Mr. Mister's 'Broken Wings'. "Skydance" was produced by Paul Buckmaster whose production credits include Elton John, David Bowie & The Rolling Stones to name but a few.

The package also features sleeve notes by Charles Waring who contributes to both MOJO and Record Collector magazines.
