Album Notes
This album is another musical adventure with Alan Merrill delving into a variety of styles, from folk rock to R&B, glam-rock to pop, and rock to romantic ballads.
Songs like “Sun On The Hill” and “Love Just Happens” harken back to the Arrows, his chart hit band in the mid 1970s in England.
Following in the tradition of Alan’s most famous song “I Love Rock N Roll, “Across The Pond” was written and recorded as an homage to his love of the rock ‘n roll British Invasion of the mid 1960s that inspired so many young musicians. It's the theme song for a TV show of the same name for the new MyJam Music Network; a show Alan Merrill has also hosted, showcasing acts from the UK for a US audience. “Equalizer” was written for Bell Records 70s UK glam-rock legend Jon Rossall’s new project, which will be out in 2019. “Long Road Home” is the only song on the album that has been previously recorded and released by Hiroshi Kamayatsu and his father Tib Kamayatsu in Japan as a duet on the “Father and Mad Son” album in 1972. The song is a Kamayatsu-Merrill co-write. Also included here is a rare track written by Alan at age 15, “Before My Eyes” which was part of the repertoire of his semi-pro teen bands, The Kaleidoscope and The Water Tower West, when they played at the Café Wha? in Greenwich Village, New York 1966 –1968. It has been recently recorded for the first time, and will be of interest to people who were there back then, or who might be curious to hear what those bands sounded like in the hazy, heady days of the psychedelic 60s. Alan has dusted off his Rickenbacker 12 string, a guitar that he played exclusively in his teens, for this track . Where Alan’s last album “Blue Avenue” was keyboard driven, 12 string guitars both electric and acoustic are a common theme on this new album.
“Don Quixote Absolutely” and “Goodbye, Rock ‘N Roll Heroes” are reflective and revealing songs about the music industry from Alan’s insider’s eye. The song “A Brand New Day” clearly shows how his close familial ties with Laura Nyro has influenced his songwriting, being with her after school in the Bronx in the mid-1960s, watching her write her most legendary songs all those years ago.
I hope you enjoy tuning in to Radio Zero!
