The four "Forgotten Sons" Gerry (Gerold Hinrichs), Kay Dee (Klaus Dörenkämper), Ringo (Peter Herzberg) and Woodpecker Cartwright (Michael Grunwald) from the district of Osnabrück are countering the forced Corona break 2020/2021 with the production of the first CD .
The band's own song map with around 75 cover songs from the live repertoire provided 13 pieces that
Home studio conditions were initially pre-produced as demos. Additionally, THE FORGOTTEN SONS OF BEN CARTWRIGHT have arranged and recorded two new songs penned by singer Gerry and his nephew Sebastian Hinrichs.
With a distribution option via the Osnabrück company TIMEZONE records and a booked recording studio in hand, the recording sessions finally went to Bad Iburg in the summer of 2021 to the »Mill of Friendship«. The four »Forgotten Sons« found an ideal partner for the realization of the project in sound engineer and studio owner Marcus Praed. At the end of the recording, the three guest musicians - fiddler Peter van den Bos (Music Road Pilots, NL), keyboarder Torsten Kappei (formerly Country Express Salzgitter) and guitarist Martin Lutze (formerly Southern Streamline) - enriched some of the songs their musical skills.
The disc is called Time To Fold The Cards (title song/own composition) and will be released on April 22nd, 2022. 15 song titles reflect the band's stylistic range and go far beyond simply covering country songs. This has been confirmed in preview reviews and critiques within the country music trade press and online portals. There are musical borrowings from Alan Jackson, Toby Keith, Rosanne Cash and Kris Kristofferson, to name just the most well-known performers.
