First Release of the Year
In April we promised you an exciting month for May……..and that it was. Along with the tour dates which you can read about on the home page, May seventh marked the release of Disc Two in the “Under the Covers” series. The first single of the series, After Midnight, released in November is now followed by “Going Down”. Disc Two boasting a studio version of Going Down with a bonus cut of “The Sky Is Crying” hit the markets and airwaves early May and thus far Going Down reports a phenomenal two thousand sixty-two plays on Daily Motion alone!! Congratulations MC and Moonlight Label!! Special thanks goes out to Paula Buechley who snapped and submitted the cool front cover picture of MC and also to Charles’ graphic artist, Jamie Coghill of Newmarket Music Australia for the design. And last but not least, yours truly, Michael Charles for his original renditions of these two great covers. (editor’s note: The vote is split even here at Moonlight Label on which is best; live or recorded. I myself find both extremely engaging, entertaining, and just plain exciting.) You’ll find your copy of Going Down Disc Two at MC’s live shows, michaelcharles.us, CD Baby, Amazon, to name a few.

The Lake Shore Drive Man
MC had the privilege this past month to join Ted Aliotta in Horse Drawn recording studios to add a little Michael Charles acoustic guitar slide flare to Ted’s new track all about the music scene of Chicago. Two great musicians lending their talents to each other as Ted reciprocated by coming in and laying a little harp and vocals down on one of MC’s latest recordings. Watch for them both!!
