That Great Connection
In 1998, Will Maranto completed his first full-length album, That Great Connection. This is perhaps his most folksy and pure work. The That Great Connection band included Will (lead vocals, guitars), Joe Tynes (bass guitar) and Travis Pierrelee (drums). It should be noted that this album was engineered, mixed, and produced by Maranto in Benton, LA. The album included notable tracks “Right By My Side,” “Twenty Days,” and “It’s Not Always So Bad.” Maranto plans to re-record and/or re-master the album in the future with the original band.
