April 11, 2010 - PRLog -- Acoustic Alchemy has a rich legacy based on the extraordinary airplay, sales and critical reception given the many early Webb-Carmichael led recordings followed by those helmed later by Carmichael and Gilderdale. Carmichael with each successive recording is carrying on a legacy begun by Webb and a guitarist named Simon James in the early 80s. The road to instrumental stardom began when Webb and Carmichael provided the one-off-in-flight entertainment for a Virgin Airlines England to America flight, in search of an elusive recording contract; they often liked to say they "played their way to America". Signed to the MCA Master Series label by Tony Brown, their popularity took off in conjunction with the New Adult Contemporary radio format

Their early MCA albums-starting with Red Dust and Spanish Lace and continuing with 1988's Natural Elements and 1989's Blue Chip were all later re released on GRP. Last year, Verve released a successful greatest hits collection entitled The Very Best of Acoustic Alchemy, and Image Entertainment has just released Sounds of St. Lucia, a new CD/DVD live concert set based on a performance recorded for BET Television.
"The band has been through a lot of changes over the years, but the concept of two acoustic guitars has always been the emotional centerpiece which draws people close," says Carmichael. "I'm happy these days because I love the people in the band and it's great touring with them and playing live onstage. Miles is very quiet offstage, but get him up there and you never know what kind of crazy things he's going to do and say! It's really so much fun, and we have a lot of loyal fans who have enjoyed taking the journey with us. The positive spirit behind our music and album titles comes from the wonderful relationship we have with them."
