Album Notes
A Review on Speed Of Light:

Following his single “Best of Friends,” a heartfelt ode to fathers and sons, Dale Sechrest released his debut album, Speed of Light, an eclectic blend of rock, soul and blues. Speed of Light chronicles a life’s search for love from the garage party antics of “New Orleans” and lovesick “Baby I’m Crazy,” to the amorous battle cry of “When It Comes Down” with the despair driven “Sometimes.” Bookended by faith-based anthems, “Higher Ground” and “The Time Will Come” (not included in the MP3 Release), frame the ups and downs of this journey with a belief in better days, while a rousing rock cover of Ray Charles “Unchain My Heart” and a tribute to a friend who encouraged Sechrest to play publicly on “The Ballad of Matthew and the Priest” round out the album’s diverse sound.

From Dale:
My music would probably be influenced by the music I listened to growing up:
Harry Chapin, Bob Dylan, Neal Young, Moody Blues, Simon & Garfunkle.

As far as 'Speed of Light' my agent's first words were, 'some of it sounds like it came from the 70's'.
Makes sense, because some of the songs were written then.

Speed of Light has a little bit of everything. Rock and roll, ballad, country, jazz and blues.

Within the Tri-State area where I live, there were radio stations that played the entire CD upon its release.
The title track, Speed of Light, with guest vocalist, Jimmy Ryser, was placed on full rotation at many radio stations in Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio.
The song that received the highest acclaim, however, was 'Sometimes'.

Speed of Light was released in August of 1997.

This album was recorded 'Live'.
