Real 2 Reel Studios Masters Collective Soul’s 20th Anniversary Release

Collective Soul's 20th Anniversary Release

Nov. 2014 – There’s a long history between Real 2 Reel Studios and Collective Soul, a history of family, friendship and work.  We are proud and excited to be involved in the post-production of their newest release,  “See What You Started By Continuing”.  The CD was mixed by Shawn Grove and sent to Real 2 Reel Studios for mastering. Steve Rawls mastered for three different release formats: CD, iTunes and vinyl.

The CD marks the multi-platinum artist’s 20th anniversary.  The band released “Hints Allegations and Things Left Unsaid” in 1994 as their first studio album that included the rock anthem “Shine” that shot to international recognition and double-platinum status.  20 years later the band has released seven #1 radio hits and sold more than 10 million albums across the world.

The long awaited 9th studio album “See What You Started By Continuing” fully embodies the journey that Collective Soul has taken musically and personally throughout the last two decades.  “As a band we have experienced and developed so much as musicians and people in the last twenty years,” commented Collective Soul frontman, Ed Roland.  “This album represents a full circle, coming back to the roots of Collective Soul, and continuing to build on the music that we started making from the beginning.”
