Past, Present And FutureAl Stewart's Past, Present and Future launched the artist from being an English coffeehouse staple
into a worldwide rock superstar thanks to the intriguing lyrics and melodies contained within the two sides
of this 1974 masterwork. While achieving cult-like status in the U.K. with his unique brand of folk/rock,
Past, Present and Future featured some of Al Stewart's finest songs like the prog-rock champions Roads
to Moscow, Soho (Needless to Say) and his timeless masterpiece Nostradamus.
While playing college gigs and opening for major recording acts across the states, Al Stewart's Past,
Present and Future grabbed the attention of astute rock radio programmers who had discovered the U.K.
import of this classic before it reached North America. Soon, tracks like Terminal Eyes ignited a wave of
requests, developing the popularity further, while having the luxury of entire sides being played on the
more esoteric FM radio stations across the states.
Aside from being a brilliant composer and wonderful vocalist, Al Stewart also plays some mean
acoustic and electric guitar alongside some of the most important players of our time like Rick Wakeman,
Roger Taylor, Tim Renwick and many others.

Please2018 Remastered Version
In many ways, Please brought Euro-techno into the unsuspecting homes of millions like no other album before. This time, the boys--in this case the Pet Shop Boys--were doin' it for themselves. I Want a Lover and Tonight Is Forever are songs by boys for boys about boys that snuck past so many because of the genderless (for the most part) objects of affection in the lyrics. Please announces with every synthesizer swell layered over electronic beats, that the boys came to dance and they could complain about their love lives while they were at it. There is also a snide swat or two at the socioeconomic state of things (Opportunities), but the Pet Shop Boys' debut will always be most remembered for Neil Tennant's Al Stewart-like vocals in West End Girls. -Steve Gdula1.

DereconstructedWhat awaits you when the needle drops on Dereconstructed, the
new album by Lee Bains lll & the Glory Fires? Nothing less than
pure fucking heaven, that's what.
Consider the record's opener, "The Company Man." It revs up with
a riff sleazy enough to clog Rod Stewart's stomach pump as an
incantation that only a Yellowhammer can truly understand is
bellowed and then screamed. Before you know it, the joint is hotter
than a Birmingham soaking pit while you, the listener, are reminded,
lest you forget, don't ever trust the company man.
Dereconstructed is a careening, road raging, all night party of a
record. Informed by a distinctly southern hoodoo, it is a master
class in authentic Gulf Coast choogle. Having cut his teeth in the
Dexateens, Lee Bains lll has been properly schooled in how to throw
down, so much so that even his hyper literate musings are no match
for the blown out distortion that gives this record it's blistering
Songs like "The Kudzu and The Concrete," "Dirt Track" and the
roaring, blissfully-shambolic title track could be anthems looking
for a stadium, but they're also reminders as to why Lee Bains lll &
the Glory Fires are such a formidable party machine: simply put,
Dereconstructed was recorded by Tim Kerr, and mixed by Jeremy
Ferguson at Battle Tapes, Nashville, TN. The band resides in Atlanta,
GA. and Birmingham, AL.1. The Company Man

Dan DyerIt may be generalizing. Hopefully it isn't offensive. But let's face it: Dan Dyer has one hell of a soulful voice for a white guy. It's a soulful voice for anybody. But for a white guy?! Close your eyes and you're likely to picture something more along the lines of Al Green or Stevie Wonder or Sly Stone than some east Texan around 40 years old. But this is Dan Dyer's gift - a voice oozing soul along with deeply introspective, serious songwriting.
Dyer was born and raised in the small east Texas town of Tool. He was given a guitar at age 5 but didn't learn to play until he was 18 and had moved to Austin, Texas. It was there that he began to study music seriously, attacking the guitar, and exploring his until-then untapped singing and songwriting powers.
While attending Texas State in San Marcos, Texas, Dyer formed a band, Breedlove, with guitarist Tyrone Vaughan (son of Jimmie Vaughan), drummer Jason White, keyboardist Ezra Reynolds and bassist Josh Dawkins. The group developed a dedicated following and released Reach Out in 1996 before disbanding in 1998.
From there, Dyer moved to New York City and began writing commercial music jingles, having songs placed in marketing campaigns for Budweiser, Chevrolet, Dr. Pepper and Campbell's Soup. While there, Lenny Kravitz, who had just begun a Warner Bros. imprint called Roxie Records, signed Dyer and produced his What Lies Beneath record in 2004, the first release on the label. Kravitz co-wrote four of the songs with Dyer and also played guitar on the record.
After touring for a year behind What Lies Beneath, Dyer moved to St. Louis and started a family. In 2007, he returned to Austin where he'd reunited with friend David Boyle, who recorded and produced Dyer in his converted-church studio for the self-titled Dan Dyer. The record was released in 2008 on Fat Caddy Records. From the chain gang-inspired sound of Love Chain to the gospel-tinged I Walk On Gilded Splinters and Stewart Copeland-esque syncopations of Play On Little Children, Dyer and Boyle weave a diverse fabric that extends beyond conventional musical boundaries.
