For The Record - A Tribute To John Wicks

Known for his work with/as The Records, John Wicks was about to record the vocal tracks for this latest batch of songs before his untimely passing in late 2018. In his stead, friends and pop luminaries have gotten together to see that his final compositions were completed. It's a very personal goodbye and a testament to how much John was loved and appreciated by his peers. The project was masterfully coordinated by Rich Rossi, one of John’s closest friends.

The liner notes include heartfelt tributes by Records drummer Will Birch, Alan Haber, Richard Rossi, and Jamie Hoover. PROCEEDS FROM SALES WILL GO TO JOHN'S SON PERRY, AND TO THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY.
