Last year, Transgressive reissued American Canadian composer and activist Beverly Glenn-Copeland’s 1986 masterpiece, ‘Keyboard Fantasies’, marking the 35th Anniversary of its original release. Now, the label present ‘Keyboard Fantasies Reimagined’, a collection of songs from the legendary album, re-worked and re-imagined by a collection of creative kindred spirits.
The remix album and reissue of the original work follow the Autumn 2020 release of Glenn’s album, ‘Transmissions: The Music of Beverly Glenn- Copeland’. ‘Transmissions’ was a career-spanning album that includes compositions from his early works including selections from ‘Keyboard Fantasies’. It also included both new and archival unreleased tracks and live versions. This collection marked the first new release from Glenn-Copeland since 2004. The New York Times called it a “lifespanning mixtape that moves from the mournful torch songs of his youth to joyously soulful odes to survival.”
