Following in her tradition of every so often releasing a specialty album, the Symphonic siren Lana Lane delivers some of her favorite Classic Rock numbers on her latest album “Gemini”. This album takes the music from the 60’s and 70’s and combines her own style in a very respective fashion along with an All-Star cast of performers that includes Vinny Appice, Kelly Keeling, George Lynch, Tony Franklin, Mark McCrite and Eric Norlander (her Husband). Together the group allows Lana to breathe new life into music that is still relevant in today’s world and rightfully so as these are more than mere tunes and instead legendary music of a generation passed. Lane has an incredible voice, and closely resembles Ann Wilson from Heart which makes her dead on for those particular numbers on the album. She called the record “Gemini” and it serves a twofold purpose as it’s also her second album of cover material. To make it more interesting, there are also two songs from each of the included bands – Pink Floyd, Heart, Cream, Foreigner, Moody Blues and Jefferson Airplane each get the chance to have two of their numbers performed by the singer.
