AS you may know, at Playground we not only record and produce new artist projects, we also archive masters that were left here following the passing of founder Finley B Duncan in 1989. Late in 2007 we issued "Soul Resurrection The Playground Series Vol. 1", in 2008 we saw the release of of Mary Gresham's "A Voice from the Shadows" and Doris Allen's "A Shell of a Woman" released on the Soulscape UK label. We are looking forward this month to the Soulscape release of Playground tracks on Big John Hamilton entitled "Are You Happy With Him"

We now that the Super Bowl is over .... maybe we can start the new year! Although it was one of the best Super Bowls ever.. It just seems like the country would not not kick into gear until the Inauguration and the Super Bowl had come to an end. Now that those two events have come to a close, what does that leave us with?
"Nothing But Hope" is the working title of an on going project that we have been working on here at PRS for Steve Fisher. The project is coming to a close and features some fine instrumentalists and Steve's great songs. The project is scheduled for a limited release in the first quarter of 2009.
The album mirrors the similarities between the Great Depression of the 1930s and our current economic dilemma.
Steve has had three previous releases, one solo project and two with the Virginia based band the Circuit Riders.
