Special Guests released a CD in late 2011. The CD had been 2 years in the making and features superb vocal performances by Zoe Alpert, Craig Carter, and Suzanne McNeil. The project began when songwriter Al Pechulis met Zoe and Rick Alpert, while performing at the Frank Withey Memorial Scholarship Foundation concerts near Boston. Zoe particularly liked Alís original songs, and after Al gave her a CD of original material, the trio met on a winterís night in 2009 and knew this would be something special.
Pechulis had successes in the past, recording records for London Records and Jeff Lynneís (ELO, Traveling Wilburys) private label, Jet Records, which was distributed by worldwide by United Artists. After disappointing record sales, Al gave up and got into computer software. In 1986, Al began playing again with bassist David Karahalis and drummer Doug Parks. Al had always sung his own songs, but in 1995, developed an incurable vocal disorder called Spasmodic Dysphonia, and could no longer keep pitch. Hearing Zoe sing sparked Alís determination to produce another record. After recording 5 songs, Zoe became pregnant and took a leave of absence from the band. Al then brought in country-flavored singer, Craig Carter, to fill the void. For one reggae-flavored track, Yes I Know, Al brought in his good friend, Suzanne McNeil, to sing, and thus the name, Special Guests.
For their next CD, the band has decided to go back to their rock and blues roots. 4 new singles have been released so far and are available on most download sites. Look for more from the band in the very near future.
