In August of 2022, John and I (Lance) went to the Jersey shore to shoot the next Time-Life 30-minute infomercial. The new 70s/80s 4-disc soft rock compilation is called “The Summer Breeze Collection.” Dance With Me and Still the One are included in the playlist, as are songs from many of the artists we’ve had the good fortune to work with over the years, including …
Player, Ambrosia, Chicago, Hall & Oates, Air Supply, Seals & Crofts, America, Al Stewart, Gary Wright, England Dan & John Ford Coley, Christopher Cross, Robbie Dupree, Beach Boys, Billy Ocean, Carly Simon, Starship, Fleetwood Mac, Cheap Trick, Little River Band, Foreigner, REO Speedwagon … and those are JUST the ones we’ve worked with!
Doing this kind of thing is very different than writing, recording or playing live but, thanks to the incredible crew and able Director, we were guided through the various “scenes”, each consisting of just a few lines of banter between John and me. Although not in our natural habitat, I don’t think we embarrassed ourselves (too much :-).
The infomercial will begin to run in the fall of ’22 on cable and late night TV and may run for as long as 18 months. Perhaps you’ll stumble across it at some point.
