What can I say? This power pop classic album is truely some of the best work of Phil's incredible career! His angel-like harmonies and his strong sultry silky lead vocals are undescribable anddefinatley worth checking out. This album was once voted to be one of the top 10 album choices to have on a desserted island. It has been over 20 years since it's original release date on vinyl, so to finally have this available on CD is beyond any wildest dreams I could imagine. If your looking for a lot of posative energy, happiness, and chills from head to toe, check out this CD.

Christmas came a little early this year with the CD release of Phil Seymours' first album for Neil Bogarts' Boardwalk on Collectors Choice Music! Luckily the package has been carefully thought out to include not only the original tracks but as a bonus, tracks penned by the pop meisters from Tulsa, Bill Pitcock , Dwight Twilley and again another Phil Seymour gem "I'll be Waiting". Like most pop acts of the era by the time Phil got going, his recording matured to include themes that were relative to future Generation Xers. "Don't blow your life Away" , "Then we go Up". But to no surprise the teen fans at Phils' performances screamed like he was an answer to their unrequinted love. They truly thought he was one of them. He had it all the look, the voice and talent. Like Bobby Darin , Don Henley and Dave Grohl little time was wasted sitting on the drum throne. Phil was able to see first hand the effect well written songs, sung infectiously had on impressionable fans. He gave his time generously to help others keep the ball rolling like Tom Petty,Moon Martin,20/20. All it would take is a phone call and an invitation to record and he would be there lending his voice,drumming, guitar or bass playing and inspiring others too many to mention. Influenced by the Beatles, Elvis and Brill Building writing, this classic record will live forever. The new photo on the back demands putting this CD in front of your collection.
Precious!

As half of the Dwight Twilley group, drummer-singer-songwriter Seymour helped create two of the greatest albums of the late-70s power-pop renaissance, "Sincerely" and "Twilley Don't Mind." After departing from the group, Seymour did some woodshedding with Tom Petty (those are his backing vocals on "American Girl" and "Breakdown," for example), 20/20 and Moon Martin before signing with Neil Bogart's Boardwalk Records for this 1980 debut.

The Beatleisms that Seymour shared with Twilley are still here, but the Sun-styled slap-back sound has been updated to a mix more reflective of '70s pop-rockers like The Raspberries and Plimsouls. Seymour's writing (along with contributions from Twilley and Bill Pitcock IV) lived up to the standards of his two albums with Twilley, and Richard Polodor's production captures all of the band's chiming goodness. Covers of Bobby Fuller's "Let Her Dance" and The Go-Go's "We Don't Get Along" are a real hoot.

Collectors' Choice first-ever CD reissue adds three bonus cuts that include a poppy version of Twilley's "Looking for the Magic" that sounds like it was remastered 3-4% too fast. All three sound to have been drawn from lower quality tape sources than the album masters, and don't really expand on the original LP's core charms. The booklet's pictures are great, but the liner notes consist of nothing more than quotes from Robert Hilburn, Twilley, Petty and others; this release deserves an original essay on Seymour and the creation of his debut. An essential entry in the power-pop canon. [©2006 hyperbolium dot com]

I was a big fan of Phil's from the Dwight Twilley days. I remember hearing this album years ago. I was reintroduced to it years later and wow! Power pop at it's greatest. How Phil never got to make a follow-up in the years before his passing is a mystery to me. This is probably better than any Dwight Twilley album (a tall order). I actually like his version of "Looking For The Magic" better than the original. "Precious To Me" might be the greatest pop song ever written. Absolute perfection. Phil died way too young, and like other artists such as Gram Parsons, Nick Drake, etc., their music lives on to influence future generations. Check out Phil's work on the Carla Olson and the Textones albums also. Phil's discography may not be vast, but it's all good. R.I.P. Phil, you may be gone, but you're certainly not forgotten. Your voice will always be precious to me.

When I bought my first CD player back in 1987, I started slowly but surely replacing all of my favourite LPs that I'd been collecting since the mid-70s. Until it was finally released on CD just recently, this album was on my short list of about five most anticipated recordings to be released on CD - and it's been one heckuva long wait!

To fully appreciate this album, let's rewind back to 1980 for a minute or two. As I recall, the Top 40 musical landscape at the time was in the middle of a rather sudden disco-to-new wave transition with headbanger/stoner rock poised to seize the album charts following a long period of movie soundtrack domination (notably Saturday Night Fever and Grease). Disenfranchised teens caught a back-to-back double dose of two stoner classics within the same year: AC/DC's BACK IN BLACK and Pink Floyd's THE WALL.

While there's no denying that they're both great albums in their own right, looking at them from a pop culture perspective, their collective influence spawned a breed of "teenzillas" that were popping up all over small town America like something out of a George Romero flick (Attack Of The Zoned-Out Rock Zombies, anyone?). This musical stormcloud resulted in a marginalized segment of a hormonally-charged teen society that was becoming increasingly hostile (uppers: AC/DC) and bummed out with life in general (downers: Pink Floyd). A negative outlook combined with frequent acid trips can be a dangerous thing, indeed.

Anyway, if you didn't possess that certain glazed-over-Beavis-and-Butthead-in-a-lumberjacket look that was requisite for anyone to fit in with the burnout crowd, then you were the enemy and a bounty was on your head if you appeared to be anything remotely "disco".
