Rock - Easy Listening

Boasting a heavy-hitting roster of session players, singer/songwriter/guitarist Tony Barca puts his best thirteen feet forward with this collection. His list of influences includes Eric Clapton, Lowell George, Bonnie Raitt, John Hiatt and Jackson Browne; sure enough, one can hear traces of each within this disc. Vocally, Barca resembles none other than Slowhand; if you like Clapton's singing, you're gonna really dig this. Running the gamut from brass-filled, bluesy rockers to acoustic-based ballads, Barca displays a versatile songwriting talent along with the ability to put 'em across in a no-bullshit, in-your-face kind of way. Depending upon your own tastes, some songs are bound to strike a nerve more than others. While I enjoyed the album as a complete entity, the midway point piqued my attention the most. "Hyway Rider, " a ballad featuring some fine dobro playing from John Putnam, along with "Already Over You, with its down-home country feel courtesy of Ira Siegel's nifty guitar work, are two radio-ready tracks. While not representative of Barca's range as a writer, I feel that these songs reflect the best attributes of their author. What's more, they're also ready-and-waiting for radio air-play,already earmarked for The Island Zone! Barca proves that growing older doesn't mean your passion for living must undergo a commensurate decline. Once again, here's proof that music keeps the little kid inside of us alive and kicking. --Roy Abrams--
