Album Notes
Some Ifs: (To help you to decide if you should buy this record)
>If you are tired of how W. is running this country, you will like the politically charged songs on this record.
>If you like early Bruce Cockburn, you will like the songs on this album.
>If you want to know what the Word is from the Streets of the once Rural but now growth exploding big money influenced Central Oregon high desert, you need this record.
>If you like Michael Moore's take on America, you will like these songs.
>If you know that positive thinking and your attitude do make a difference in your life, this record will affirm those beliefs.
>If you believe the Universe is compassionate and that we are spiritual beings in spite of all the materialism in America, and that it is still worth praying about, these songs will resonate.
>If you have truly loved or been loved, there is a song or more here for you.
>If you have a missing biological parent, there is a song here for you.
>If you have eaten Fast Food or thought of living in Outer Space, you must have "Food on the Run."
>If you are "Facing 50" or older, or you are young and wonder about what it's like to get older, you need this record in your music library.
>If you have "Questions for God," give a listen. I do, too.
>If you have realized that sometimes, no matter what, you just can't protect and safeguard those you love, you need to hear "Girl Hold Me Tight."
>If you relate to the writings of James Redfield and/or John Shelby Spong, we are family and you need this record.
>If you answered yes to any of the Ifs above, you must have this record to take the next step on your life adventure spiritual quest. And as my brother Dean Prescott of The Substitutes says in "Wallpaper Music," "If he sings above their laughter, He's taking it too far, But if he croons away in whispers, They only hear his guitar. Sing for your supper, we need you around. We may not hear you, but we still like the sound."
*Thanks to Dean for reminding me that sometimes we can provide more than just "Wallpaper Music" for the audiences we play for.

White Mouse

Eclectic mix of music
Dean Prescott enchances Allan's songs with his tasteful lead guitar and percussion. Allan touches on many subjects relating to how to be a sane contributing member of the human race. More people need to hear this album which also features Ed "the whistler" Sharlet.

Completing the Portrait
The Source's Jeff Trainer calls the new Allan Byer album "completing the portrait." I disagree. Byer is just beginning. I do agree with Trainer that Byer shows continued musical growth as he tackles some big life issues in songs like "I Believe, Money Talks to Much, Father Make Me," and the "Dad I Never Had." but then lightens things up with songs like "Food on the Run" and "Attitude." "Falling Down" and "Girl Hold Me Tight" are testaments to emotional realizations about growing older. These lyrics are interesting, some are truly unique. Musically Byer does benefit from his friend and producer Dean Prescott's deft touch on guitars and percussion as well as his use of just enough effects on Byer's voice to heighten and enhance. Byer's melodies are becoming even more interesting and his use of Ed "the whistler" as a lead instrument on some songs enhances their originality. Kim Lakehomer's flute on some other songs is a nice touch and Prescott seems to be channeling George Harrison on songs like "Girl Hold Me Tight." Byer's daughter's voice adds some sweet harmonies on two of the songs. All in all, the album is a huge achievement. With 17 songs and 71 mins., there is much ground covered, musically, lyrically, emotionally. Nice job, Mr. Byer. I agree with Trainer's final assessment that Byer could turn out even more "gems" if he could free himself from his day job as a school teacher and devote full time efforts to honing his musical art.
