Editorial Reviews

The stellar career of singer-songwriter-guitarist Nils Lofgren receives a comprehensive retrospective in Face the Music, limited edition nine-CD/one-DVD boxed set that is individually hand signed and numbered by the artist.

The collection s music component, selected by Lofgren himself, comprises 169 tracks, stretching back to Lofgren s early work with his Washington, D.C.-area band Grin, which he founded at the age of 17 in 1968, and surveying both his major-label solo albums and independent self-released music. Two of the CDs contain 40 previously unreleased tracks and rarities. The DVD features 20 video clips selected from a body of performances as diverse as Nils career.

A detailed, lavishly illustrated 136-page booklet, with an introduction by noted rock journalist Dave Marsh, contains Lofgren s track-by-track commentary and personal reflections on his work, as well as his tours of duty as a sideman with such luminaries as Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen, and Ringo Starr. The set also contains homages to Lofgren by such colleagues as Bonnie Raitt, Joe Walsh, Sting, Bono, and Paul Rodgers.

In its entirety, the set gives a full-length, intimately detailed picture of the performer Neil Young who hired the 18-year-old Lofgren to play piano and guitar on After the Gold Rush in 1969 calls an inspiration to me for many years. A true triple threat, Lofgren has distinguished himself as the writer of melodic, affecting, and hard-rocking songs, a sensitive and seemingly ageless singer, and a guitarist of incomparable power and imagination.

this could be great.
I have been waiting for this release for a while now. I am most curious about the two CD's of unreleased and demos. The DVD should be good fun as well. Also a 136 page booklet summarizing his career is also good.
