FOR THE RECORD: A Tribute to John Wicks
My involvement with the new John Wicks tribute record makes it impossible for me to be impartial when reviewing it. That said, here are just a few of the things people are saying about FOR THE RECORD: A Tribute to John Wicks:
“One of the best tributes I’ve ever heard, one of the sincerest rock n roll love letters ever crafted. It’s a pure thrill to listen, a pure thrill to play”.Carl Cafarelli, This Is Rock ‘n’ Roll Radio
“Highlights on For the Record are plentiful: from Peter Case’s soulfully rockin’ “In & Out Motel” and Don Dixon’s wry, muscular “Money & A Fu Manchu” to Al Stewart’s wonderfully smooth “The Beltway” and Nick Guzman’s tear-inducing, disc-closing “Chasing Angels,” John Wicks’ golden tunes lend themselves to a variety of winning interpretations….”John M. Borack, Contributing Editor of Goldmine Magazine
“The decision on how to complete the final work of an iconic artist is usually not easy or obvious. Some of John Wicks’ many amazing friends have finished up the final statement he sadly wasn’t able to complete. A fitting tribute to one of the great talents of our time.”Ronnie Barrett, The Muffs
“Featuring long time friends…and produced by the great Jamie Hoover, For The Record has a twangy yet reverent vibe, and definitely does the master justice”.David Bash, CEO of The International Pop Overthrow Festival
Masterfully produced by Jamie Hoover, you’ll hear wonderful vocal performances from Ray Paul, Peter Case, Jamie Hoover, Al Stewart, Chris Thompson, Paul Collins, Don Dixon, Carla Olson, Bill Berry, Dave Nachmanoff, Kyle Frost and Nick Guzman, as well as musicians and/or vocalists Chris Price, Andy Qunta, Elliot Easton, Zak Nilsson, Syd Straw, Tommy Montez, Pat Mitchell, Patrick McGrath, Lindy Bingham, Candy Divider & more.
