TOTO-related releases to look forward to...

Postby The_Noble_Cause » Sat Mar 21, 2020 1:08 am

With TOTO on an indefinite break, here's a list of TOTO-related releases for fans to look forward to. Feel free to add anything I missed. I know Steve P. mentioned another album at some point also.

CWF 2 (Champlin, Williams, Friestedt) - Preorders available. Release date uncertain.

ZFG debut album (Featuring Trev Lukather, Sam Porcaro, and guest spots by Perry and Paich) - being mixed.

New Luke Solo Album - in progress.

New Joseph Williams Solo Album - Status unknown. Joe has mentioned it on social media.

Bobby Kimball All I Ever Needed 2.0- in progress according to producer John Zaika. Will be comprised of alternate Kimball/Mickey Thomas vocal takes

Thanks, bud. A little surprised Luke doesn't appear on his boy's debut record.

I really am looking forward to Luke's next. With Paich being a part of that throughout, will be almost like Toto 2.0...lol

How involved is Paich? Just guesting on a song or two or keyboard player for the whole thing?

If the legalities around the band name get sorted out before it's finished, I wonder if it'd potentially be 'converted' to a Toto album, like how Lindsey Buckingham's solo albums kept getting turned into Fleetwood Mac LP's. I know it's a long shot, but it's not like there's a huge bridge between Kingdom Of Desire/Tambu and a Luke solo album.

Doesn't matter to me, I'll be excited either way, I just know far more people would know of it and actually get to hear it if Paich and Joe were heavily involved and it came out as a Toto record.

But again, Dave may have just shown up at the studio for a day or two to play some keys, I have no idea.

Apparently Joe Williams has recorded so much material that he is looking at two solo release, a volume 1 and volume 2. Really looking forward to his solo album(s). The thing he does with Friestedt and Champlin doesn't really do much for me. As much as I adore his voice, it's his incredible songwriting that stands out to my ears, and there's none of that on the Friestedt albums.

I also wish he'd get around to finish the album he did with his brother Mark cirka 1990. It wasn't the best of times for Joseph Williams personally (or perhaps vocally), but they wrote some incredible songs during those sessions. Obviously they've used some of them for their respective solo projects, but I'd really like to hear them do these songs together. I think they were looking at naming their project Bond.
