Post 498 - Doug Parkinson – Heartbeat To Heartbeat LP

In March 1983 Doug Parkinson released his second solo album “Heartbeat to Heartbeat” (SBP 237862) for CBS Records. The LP was produced by Tommy Emmanuel and Alan Marsfield. It featured some of Australia’s finest musicians such as Billy Green, Broderick Smith, Johnny Dick, Tommy Emmanuel, Vanetta Fields just to name a few. The album featured five singles for CBS. Later in 1983 he took the starring role of Judas in the revived stage production of Jesus Christ Superstar. The production toured Australia for twelve months to great acclaim, before final performances in Hong Kong and Singapore. Thanks to Tony H for the help with this one.

Totally unaware of this release by Doug. I guess he had sung previously "I'll Be Around", so he wasn't lying !

Thanks so much for bring this to the surface Ozzie and sharing.

Is the song "It's Your Move" (written by Kipner) the same as the one by America and later Diana Ross, please?

Hi Waldolala it was Written by Terry Shaddick and Steve Kipner so I'd say yes.
