Album Notes
Alan Friedman, a CPA and partner in an accounting firm specializing in the music industry, has released this 5th CD, hismost mature hardest rockin’ one yet. Like his other four, he's taken his influences from groups like The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Foreigner, Toto, Bad Company, Styx and Grand Funk, and his guitar heroes Jimi, Clapton, Beck,Tommy Bolin, Pat Thrall and (his bar-none favorite) Steve Lukather, and written another disc of guitar-based "hook & groove" hard rock tunes.

Alan and his CPA firm are immersed in the music industry, which has allowed Alan to again recruit some close friends on this CD. Drummer Jonathan Mover (Alice Cooper, Joe Satriani, Aretha Franklin, GTR, etc.), keyboardist Greg Phillinganes (Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Eric Clapton), bassist Doug Wimbish (Living Colour, The Rolling Stones), keyboardist Vince DiCola (Transformers, Hughes/Turner, Thread), and guitar heroes Steve Lukather (Toto) and Pat Thrall (Pat Travels Band, Hughes/Thrall, Asia) have lent their names & talent to this record.

Like his others, this record has special meaning to Alan because he got to record it with lifelong friends bassist Tony Jones, drummer Tony Genevive, keyboardist Jeff batter, songwriter Jen Lowe, L.A. session drummer Josh Eagan, and the late great saxophonist Jimmy Biggins. But most special is Alan recorded 5 tunes with his rockin’ drummer Todd Friedman, and his bar-non all-time favorite singer, best friend Robbie Lablanc (of Blanc Faces, Fury & Find Me fame).

The tunes on this CD were all written by Alan (with a few co-writes with Robbie Lablanc, Tony Jones, Tony Genevive, Jen Lowe, and Todd Friedman), with the exception of "It Really Don't Matter" written by Alan's buddy and famed guitarist Steve Lukather. This CD was recorded during non-tax-season months over the past 3 years (2016 – 2018) in Alan's basement studio, and mixed mostly by buddy Danny Bernini (NRBQ, The Power Station, Mary J. Blige) at Spirithouse Studios in Northampton, MA, and a couple tunes mixed by guitarist, producer, engineer and sonic genius Pat Thrall at his home studio in Las Vegas, NV.

This CD has already created a "buzz" in Japan and Europe with its anticipated release. So, check out this CD if you dig a throw-back to the rock anthems of our youth.
