Sadly due to unavoidable circumstances Paul Newton has been unable to work on the second Newton/Rainbow CD.
With many of the songs already recorded as demos with Big Ted Turner playing the bass guitar it was decided to make available these recordings as a free download. As a bonus we have included a live track featuring Paul. Hopefully this album will be finished  in the near future. We hope you enjoy these new songs, although unfinished they give a good idea of where the project was heading musically.
