Nevermore Alone was originally recorded in 1979 as Dan Holder’s solo project following 3 1/2 years of touring with Tranquility and fellow guitarist, Alan Pierce; but the album remained unreleased until now. The original studio accidentally bulk-erased one of the 24-track studio master tapes, forcing Dan to shelve the project until he could finance the rerecording of the lost tracks.
Now, more than 30 years later, Dan Holder is back! Under the LarkinSong™ label, the surviving original tapes have been converted to digital, the lost songs have been rerecorded, and all tracks have been tweaked and updated to meet the current technology.
The Nevermore Alone project contains 13 tracks, two of which are bonus mixes available only with the full album (CD or download). The first song is a bonus version of “Sweet Peace,” exactly the way it was first recorded (before any orchestrations); and the last song is an extended version of “Worthy Is The Lamb” with Dan’s new “Only He Is Worthy” chorus.
Dan Holder Music is a faith-based Christian music ministry that supports itself through concerts, recordings of Dan’s songs, and the generosity of our donors. This digital album can be downloaded in hi-def format (320kB) for about half of the retail value of the CD. Any additional amount that the Spirit moves you to give will help keep this ministry going and take Dan’s music into more homes and lives. We thank you for your support and generosity!
