This one will be played for quite some time and is a SOLID release.
No stinkers here and I highly recommend you get to know this quality release better.
I've a been a long time Eagles fan and like many of you will agree that the talent and chemistry added by Felder's arrival in 74 was a shot in the arm much along the same lines of Mr. Walsh's arrival a few years later.
I'm one of those fans who quickly realized how much of an MVP Donnie Felder was to all things Eagles. He truly gave them the overdrive they needed to separate themselves from all of the other popular 70's bands.
When "Airborne" was released back in the day, it definitely had its moments but I felt like it didn't go as deep and show as much fire as what Don was capable of.
With this release, it's all about the songs!
We know Don can crank away for hours on his Fender or Les Paul, but it's nice to hear such solid songwriting and production across the board.
I'm thrilled to see and hear Don step behind the mic and get this show on the road.
It's nice to hear Don singing as confident as he ever has. Not that he will ever be mistaken for one of the greatest vocalists ever, but it appears he has really gotten comfortable with his vocals in 2012.
"Road to forever" has some fantastic melodic rhythm playing found within these tracks. It's the meat and potatoes of this release and really propels these songs to another level.
Don picked a great songwriting partner in Timothy Drury and it's also great to see that Tommy Shaw of Styx getting a few co-writes in here.
Fall from the grace of love is by far the best track on this release and the one I can't get enough of.Read more ›
my life from childhood to the present day. His guitar playing and songwriting inspired me to pick up the guitar. I write and
teach music to all ages. This album is a work of art that inspires me to continue playing and teaching guitar. Road to Forever
has strong and soft melodies that most everyone who appreciates guitar playing would enjoy listening to .
Felder's first release "Airborne" in 1983 wasn't that impressive, and neither were his few movie soundtrack single releases. No reason to believe this would not be a great release.
Man, was I wrong. This music is right up there with the Eagles material. I shouldn't have been THAT surprised. He did co-write "Hotel California" and "Victim of Love". So what if he is the Eagles "Ringo". I like this outing and hope he can continue with the same quality.
Guests on this CD include, CSN, David Paich, Steve Porcaro, and Steve Lukather (all from TOTO). I was surprised he didn't get help from former exiled band mates Bernie Leadon and Randy Meisner, since he still talks with them. THAT would be a NICE reunion.
