Melodies From the Heart (1995) (Acclaimed Gold 1997)
Ed, accordionist and leader of The Softones, is one of life's gifted people. A consummate musician, he is also a compulsive composer and is capable of writing haunting and infinitely melodic tunes almost at the drop of a hat. The band was relaxing and having fun between takes when Ed started to play a piece that had the startling effect of being instantly memorable. Manager at the time, Jim Dettling knew immediately that a hit was being born and he asked Ed if the tune had a title. It hadn't but somebody had the bright idea of asking the fans if they could come up with a title. Somebody did, and "Dreams Come True" was born. Being a retiring kind of guy, Ed had to be forcibly persuaded to show other melodies he had written, and so he did. There were in fact so many wonderful compositions just waiting to be heard that the difficulty lay in deciding which ones should be included in this collection. In addition, perfectionist that he is, Ed insisted that certain pieces needed an extra "something" to bring them to their full potential. That is why 5 of the selections in this collection have been augmented by some beautiful string arrangements. So, relax and enjoy some of the most melodic music you have ever heard, for these are truly Ed's Melodies From the Heart.
