On overall, Glenn Frey is excellent in covering classic love songs (in a jazzy/classical form, his first in his solo projects). It's his first CD release since 1995 : a well deserved 5 star performance & a highly recommended CD listening!
"After Hours" (11 tracks; 41 min.) finds Frey revisiting standards from the sixties (mostly), and some even older songs added for good measure. The album kicks off with the Tommy Dorsey cover "For Sentimental Reasons" and that songs sets the tone for the entire album. Other great tracks include "Route 66" (Nat King Cole cover), "The Shadow of Your Smile" (Tony Bennett cover), "The Look of Love" (Burt Bacharach-penned Dusty Springfield cover), and of course "Caroline, No" (Brian Wilson-penned Beach Boys cover). And on and on. The last song is the title track, which in fact was originally written for "The Allnighter" album but didn't quite fit on there. What a great rescue of that song, 30 years later! Throughout the album Frey's lead vocals sound surprisingly warm, and his backing band is in fine form.
In all, this album isn't going to shock the world or break new barriers, but instead it induces a 'peaceful easy feeling'. I was recently in Sydney (AUS) for a short business trip, and couldn't believe it when I saw that Glenn Frey was playing the famed Sydney Opera House on the last night of my stay there, so I had to check it out (both the venue and the band). Frey and his glorious backing band kicked off with 3 Eagles classics, and then played the majority of the "After Hours" album tracks, accompanied by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. In between songs, Frey provided some great banter, including how and why he chose these songs for this album. More Eagles tunes and his biggests solo hits rounded out the set. That this took place in the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall was the cherry on the cake. What a fantastic evening of music that was! Meanwhile "After Hours" is an underrated album, and definitely worth checking out.
With a band crew that includes several who have worked on Frey's solo albums and the Eagles' 2007 magnum opus LONG ROAD OUT OF EDEN, AFTER HOURS includes a lot of well-worn covers that are given a unique spin, like the classic Bobby Troup standard "Route 66" (which, incidentally, goes through Winslow, Arizona [hint, hint]); the Beach Boys' 1966 song "Caroline, No"; Randy Newman's "Same Girl"; and the 1967 Bacharach/David classic (made famous by Dusty Springfield) "The Look Of Love." The title track, written by Frey and long-time partner Jack Tempchin, also fits the smooth format of the album.Read more ›
