Mailboat Records is proud to announce the re-release of REO Speedwagon’s 1996 lost album Building The Bridge. Beginning May 27th , the album will be available on CD, and for the first time, at all major DSPs in digital formats. The album has been digitally re-mastered with new liner notes. This item is currently available for pre-order.
REO Speedwagon’s Kevin Cronin said, “Building The Bridge was the album that truly solidified the current REO lineup, and its songs are some of our strongest ever. From the title song, which I sang with Bill Clinton on his 1996 campaign trail, to ‘Haven’t We Lost Enough (I Still Love You)’ which I co-wrote with my musical hero, Stephen Stills, to the production collaboration with the late great Greg Ladanyi, I feel this record is pound for pound one of our best. Plus, it has been out of print, and unavailable for downloads and streaming…until now. Eric Boulanger at The Bakery has re-mastered the record and our friends at Mailboat Records have updated the artwork and re-released the album across all platforms and physical options, including vinyl. We will be donating CD net proceeds to the Rock to the Rescue Foundation during our 2022 summer tour with Styx and Loverboy. I am excited to give new life to this long forgotten, but powerful album.”
