Historic first recordings by Tim Anthony, founding member of those
pop-juggernauts The Brambles. Tommy Allen and Gary Frenay from The
Flashcubes appear on this disc as an added bonus.
Don’t Forget Me
was The Agents first and only
single. It sold 1000 copies, pretty good for not having the
Internet. It helped put the band on the map and get some gigs.
Elektra Records showed interest but soon waned. A special thank
you to Gary Frenay (The Flashcubes) for his help. Agents
of the Future, was the B-side of above song. Mark Sirianni and I
wrote this together and for once I compromised, pop meets prog
–rock. Traciann has been said to be my best song ever. This
song was to be the next Agents single but did not happen.
Famed producer Jimmie Ienner called me to say this song was a
bonafide hit, but he did not want to pursue it. I asked him if he
was crazy. Relations broke down. Bruce Lundvall (Capitol
Records), Tom Trumbo (Elektra Records), Aaron Jacoves
( A&M Records), were calling me now based on this song. You decide,
is it or was it a hit? Never Thought You’d Go, was to be the
next B-side. I wanted to write a heavier song. I think I did. This
was the last session for The Agents as a band. Lee
Cominsky joined the band as an additional guitar player for a
few months and proceeded to join the army. Good-bye to The
Agents, Hello solo Ville. Never Gonna Cry, was the first
song I recorded to start my wonderful solo career. A special thank
you to Rick Krzyzak for being a good friend and a great drummer.
Maryellen has a neat history. This song would be played on
NBC’s Friday Night Lights Dec 2007. The version played
would be from my 2005 release The Happy Door, a Number 1 in
Spain. She Broke My Heart was just straight up pop. Nuff
For No One
Can and The Heart Of Every Man, I enlisted Tommy Allen
(famed drummer, The Flashcubes) to help me out. He did not
disappoint. He did a brilliant job. Also there was brandy. Don’t
Look In Her Eyes and Mystery got the attention of
David Geffen & his V.P. Carole Childs. They called me
several times amongst others. There was a bit of a buzz then. The
buzz died. Don’t Look In Her Eyes and Mystery were the
last songs I would ever record at Chase Media. It was a
wonderful time in my life and wish I could live it all over again.
Happy Ending was the first of many songs recorded by my next
band The Brambles. A&R rep Rachel Matthews (Capitol
Records), called as well as Gay Lynn Kaiser (RCA Records)
who wanted to sign me based on this song. Her boss felt differently.
All told about 15 A and R reps called me through the years to
discuss my songs and me, these calls would not be the last ones
either. The future was at hand.
