Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Dan Fogelberg is a one-man extravaganza, as anyone listening to any of his albums recognizes when they see how many instruments he plays to both acoustic and electric effect. I was introduced to this one in the late seventies by my then teenaged nephew, who incidentally later went on to star in the production of "Tommy" on Broadway, and have loved Dan Fogelberg ever since. Here are a number of terrific folk-rock entries, from "Part Of The Plan" to "Illinois" (even though when listening to it I always want to call Dan to remind him Illinois is only 2,000 miles east of California, not 3,000!), to "Souvenirs" itself. My personal favorite is "There's A Place In The World For A Gambler". Fogelberg's lush and slightly over-produced sound is something that grows on you, and his terrific voice is a sweetly perfect vehicle for the thoughtful, lyrical, and homespun melodies he writes and plays. This one is among his first outings, and he went on to fame and fortune with a whole string of hits. Still, this album is among my favorites, and I think you'll come to love it as well. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Carefully Crafted Art February 18, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Dan Fogelberg is a singer-songwriter who has his creative feet in several musical worlds, spanning rock, pop, country and folk. He has never been a flashy artist, coming across as almost shy and more focused on his art than on being caught up in the media hype that so seems to snare so many musicians. Fogelberg is a throw back to the days when music was more honest and familiar, a modern minstrel singing to please himself and whatever audience will listen.

This album begins with "Part of the Plan," a song was an early hit for Fogelberg. The song is a quick-paced pop song supported by well known players Graham Nash singing harmony, Kenny Passarelli on bass, Russ Kunkel on drums, and Joe Walsh on 12 string guitars. This song is about having patience in your life and accepting what is thrown at you when it comes. In a way the song is about karma, though I suspect that Fogelberg would say that sometimes karma needs a little help.

The second song, "Illinois," has a noticeable country flavor. Al Perkins makes a guest appearance on pedal steel guitar along with Passarelli, Kunkel and Walsh. This relatively simple and well-executed song has a simple theme, the longing for the state of Illinois, which is also Dan Fogelberg's home state. "Changing Horses" is a short little country-flavored ditty about making changes in your life before you give things a chance. This euphemistic song could readily be about significant others, your career or any number of relatively significant issues. Don Henley plays drums and provides Harmony on this song. "Better Changes" continues the country flavor and is a warning to someone about their lifestyle and that they are headed for trouble if they keep going the way they are.

5.0 out of 5 stars My First Fogelberg Favorite February 5, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Back in college (a long time ago) a friend introduced me to this album one night in a dorm room after a party, when I decided not to drive home. It made a major impression on me and I still listen to it to this day. Souvenirs was produced by Joe Walsh and has a host of incredible musicians on it, including Walsh's virtuoso guitar playing...Not to mention Dan's outstanding songwriting, playing and singing. Souvenirs has a purity and cohesiveness that make it one of my favorites of all time. This one is a must for any Dan Fogelberg fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Fogelberg Album February 7, 2008
By Shar
Format:Audio CD
The recent death of Dan Fogelberg prompted me to dig out my collection of his CDs and replay them all. I was introduced to his music back in the mid 70s, the days when an album was still vinyl. I wore out the vinyl and bought the CD, and to me, Souvenirs still remains one, if not the, best of Dan's works. Although I love "Dancing Shoes" from Netherlands, and "The Last Nail" from Captured Angel, "Souvenirs" has the most tracks all on one CD that I'll listen to without skipping from song to song. This was back when Dan still rocked out a bit, before he got all "poppy." To me, his best songs never made it into the top 40. I've seen Dan live about half a dozen times, and "A Place in the World for a Gambler" is how I'll remember him, it was always the encore, and I can still see a stadium full of lit cigarette lighters held aloft, swaying back and forth as we all chanted " Oh, let it shine....."
R.I.P. Dan

4.0 out of 5 stars Fogelberg's Breakthrough 2nd Album July 11, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Fogelberg's first real taste of commercial success, this album features what many still consider his signature song, "Part of the Plan." It moves gently through the first side..."Illinois" expresses a wistful longing for home, while the title track is a walk down memory lane. Side 2 rocks a bit more, with the somewhat caustic "As The Raven Flies" warning of the pitfalls of relationships. "Morning Sky" is pure bluegrass, still a concert favorite, and not available on any of the "Best of" collections. Likewise for the studio version of "There's a Place In The World For A Gambler," which closes out the album. The list of musicians who contributed to this album reads like a virtual who's-who of the folk-rock genre. This album is an essential part of any Fogelberg collection.

Love it. This takes me back to the days when we were playing vinyl and trying to keep them clean and scratch free. Fogelberg was a great singer songwriter.
