Unreleased LP coprod. by Bernard Edwards for Adam Ant

Bernard EdwardsPosted by FrenCHIC 2012-08-28 14:30
In 1993 Bernard Edwards co-wrote, composed & co-produced part of Persuasion a never released complete LP for Adam Ant.

Tony Thompson played drums on most of the album. Cameo guitarist and lead singer Larry Blackmon performed too. I think Bernard should also play bass.

One of the track produced by Bernard Edwards :
Obsession

TM Network - Kiss you (Kiss Japan) 1989 prod. by Bernard Edwards

Bernard EdwardsPosted by FrenCHIC 2011-06-19 20:58

In 1989 Bernard Edwards produced the single Kiss You (Kiss Japan) for japanese pop-rock band TM Network .
It appears on the LP Dress on which Nile Rodgers also produced two tracks (see post on Nile Rodgers above).

It is very interesting to note the differences between Bernard's and Nile's productions at this time for the same band. Bernard work is more rock funk oriented (it's not a surprise for those familiar with Nard's solo productions) than Nile's work.
I must admit I prefer Bernard's production. It might be a "should have been a hit".


TM Network - Kiss you (kiss Japan)



Produced and Arranged by Bernard Edwards
Bass:Bernard Edwards
Drums:Alan Childs
Guitar:Eddie Martinez
Keyboards:Jeff Bova
Horns:Lenny Pickett on sax, Earl and Christopher on trumpet

PAINT - Last Never Released Bernard Edwards Prod.

Bernard EdwardsPosted by FrenCHIC 2011-06-13 11:23

PAINT were (and maybe still is) a NYC rock band. According to PAINT they were the last production project of Bernard Edwards at the Power Station just before he passed away in 1996.

Paint talking about Bernard Edwards : "I had the honor of being in the very last band he was producing. We were called Paint and were tracking in studio A at the Power Station with him. The album was never completed because of his untimely death. Working with Bernard is something that I will hold close to my heart forever. "


"Ivan Walters Jr. son of Power Station studio head Ivan Walters Sr. invited pal and resident producer Bernard Edwards down to CBGB's to watch a band that he just started to manage. The band was Paint. Bernie liked them and wanted to produce their first album and score the band a record deal. It was Bernard's intention to study the demos and return to the Power Station to polish and redo the songs in order to capture a record deal. But unfortunately, Bernard passed away during a tour with his band CHIC in Tokyo."


DEMO's:

Paint - Big Gun - Bernard Edwards - Rough Demo :
Paint - Eyes - Bernard Edwards - Rough Demo :

Paint - One Girl - Bernard Edwards - Rough Demo :
