Shania Twain: Beginnings

Although famous for her blend of pop and country, Shania Twain proves she's a rocker at heart with the release of Beginnings, a full length album recorded, written, performed with Paul Sabu (Heart, Madonna, David Bowie, Alice Cooper) in the early 90s. Released for the first time after it's recent completion, Beginnings is reminiscent of the hard-edged rock styling of Heart and Melissa Etheridge. Backed by Paul Sabu and Todd Herreman (Prince) the performance and production is world-class. Mastered by the renowned Arnie Acosta(U2, Pink Floyd, Bonnie Raitt). Beginnings perfects the only way an album was meant to be heard...big, rich, and dynamically amazing
