Album Notes
"It's who I am and what I do...I'm a musician, I'll play my songs at a club filled with people or I'll play just as hard for one person on a Tuesday Night.. it's in my blood..." Rob Cannillo

Rob Cannillo has been writing songs for 15 years, and has finally emerged from obscurity to release his first CD. Following a life changing event, Rob decided to pursue his love of music through writing and performing his songs. His first CD "The Long Road Home" is a perfect example of his versatility as a songwriter. The songs range from jazz to blues to ballads to classic rock. If you're looking for boy meets girl songs, go elsewhere. If you want to hear intelligent, catchy songs about the choices we face everyday, you will love this CD. From the first song, "Love Struggle", with its jazzy lead guitar reminiscent of George Benson, to the gritty acoustic "Glorious Winners", to the ballad "Rusty Old Nail", you will want to listen to this CD again and again. Be sure to catch "Lullaby for Sara, Emily and Stephen" - it's a beautiful song that will make you want to grab and hug your children. Rob is following his dream, and he has taken the long road home. He wants people to listen to and enjoy his music. And don't forget to follow your dreams.
"If just one person finds meaning in my songs, it makes it all worth it" .... Rob Cannillo

Speed Review of Rob Cannillo's 1st CD. A structured analysis of the CD, as my Ka
Speed review of Rob Cannillo’s LONG WAY HOME

Unlike the 98% drum machine based songs now available, Rob Cannillo & Friends record live. Much acceleration, deceleration—no click tracks. The following is an objective review. I love the CD, and the analysis hereunder is objective totally objective.
A new form of analysis. Keep an open mind! And Rob & Friends Thank you for a great CD!

Track #1-LOVE STRUGGLE—104.9 beats per minute. (102-109 bm) the very Dave Matthews speed! (Just about every tune on Dave & Tim’s “Live At Luther College” find their way to this Flit speed. Here, the lover, by lyrics, is in a *strackuggle*, but he harmony, melody, rhythm all speak: LOVE. Songs of similar seed, feel: “Check It Out” John Mellencamp, 105.4 beats per minute, “Candy Everybody Wants,’ 10,000 Maniacs, 104.9 beats per minute, “Jessica,” the Allman Brothers band, 104.8 beats per minute

Track #2-LOVE IN YOUR EYES—93.1 beats per minute. (acceleration, 85-103). A Getting Better song. The acceleration takes us from recovery to more recovery to Enthusiasm. “Knocks Me Off My Feet,” Stevie Wonder, 90.6 beats per minute . “China Cat Sunflower” (Europe ’72), 90.8 beats per minute. “All I Want Is You,” U2, 93 beats per minute.

Track#3-MOVE YOURSELF TO LOVE—114.3 beats per minute. (mixed, 108-116 beats per minute). This reminds me so much of the 55 versions of Dave Matthews’ ‘Too Much’ (played at Clinton’s 2d Inaugural bash) that I’d recommend trackying those songs played back to back. Other songsof similar speed, “Hang On Sloopy,” The McCoys, 114.2 beats per minute. “All Along The Watchtower,” Hendrix version, 114.5 (107-118). And of course, “prove It All Night” by Bruce, 114.7 beats per minute

Track#4-LONE WOLF—77.5 beats per minute. THE Meanspeed (see “bittersweet” on for an explanation). This is the speed of indecision, period. But that’s my hypothesis. Anyway, check this song out with “Going To California,” 77.9 beats per minute, Led Zeppelin, “Holy Mother”, 78 beats per minute, Eric Clapton. “Another Grey Morning,” 77.8, James Taylor.

Track#5-BABY HOLD ON—106.3 beats per minute. Again, this songs work so well with LOVE STRACKUGGLE, here’s a re-list: “Candy Everybody Wants,” 10,000 Maniacs, 104.9 beats per minute, “These Are Days,” 10,000 Maniacs (live/MTV unplugged), “When Jesus Left Birmingham,” John Mellencamp, 106.5 beats per minute.

Track#6-GLORIOUS WINNERS—103 beats per minute. (100-107). “Another Day In Paradise,” nPhil Collins, 103 beats per minute. “Come Talk To Me”, Peter Gabriel, 101.9 beats per minute. “What’s Going On?” Marvin Gaye, 101.6 beats per minute.

Track#7-ONE MORE RIDE—88.7 beats per minute. Tracky this one if you dare, after “Midnight Rider” by The Allman Brothers Band, “Hello It’s Me” by Todd Rungren, and “Heart of the Matter,” by Don Henley. All between 88-90 beats per minutes. Have fun. Be careful.

Track#8-SARA—79.7 beats per minute. Lonely for that one TRACKUE love (he *did* get together with her and has a family of 5!). A look back, to me, as when Rob misses/missed Rob’s wife Sara (Happy Mom’s Day, Sara!) As: “I Guess Why They Call It The Blues,” Elton, 80.1 beats per minute, “She Talks To Angels,” The Black Crowes, 79.7 beats per minute. “I Can’t Stop Loving You,” Ray Charles, 79.7 beats per minute.

Track#9-RUSTY OLD NAIL—88.1 beats per minute (see ONE MORE RIDE, above). Also:”Alone”, Heart, 87.4 beats per minute. Thing Called Love,” Johnny Cash, 87.5 beats per minute, “Alison,” Elvis Costello& The Attrackactions, 88.8 beats per minute

Track#10-LULLABY FOR SARA, EMILY, AND STEPHEN—80.5 beats per minute. *Golden Slumbers*, the Beatles. Again and again! Ends this CD as the Breatles with Golden Slumbers—gorgeous.

Earthy, touching ballads that evoke images of early Allman Brothers

With this much soul, this guy has to be headed for stardom
Rob's blend of folk, blues, and rock combines a gritty, smoky voice with the skills of a true story teller.

Great music with meaningful lyrics....the songs take you through a journey.
A long road home mixes meaningful song writing strength with a smooth blend of modern rock and classic rock roots. This CD will soon be one of your favorites. The more you listen to it...the more you will appreciate the honesty in the lyrics. Rob's powerful and soulful voice leads the way for the band. Whether you enjoy the blues sounds of a sax or an acoustic guitar...pick up this cd!

Phil Longano

Excellent CD. Wonderful to listen to.
Great listening music to hear live or on the stereo. Songs are well written, catchy and professionally recorded. Would highly recommend anyone to buy it if your listening choices span from Buddy Holly to the Dave Matthews Band.

William A. Ortega

The words I have been waiting to hear someone say......
It doesn't matter what walk of life you come from, Rob Cannillo hits the human soul, our very core, with his source of empathy for the struggles and jubilations of life!
