ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Born 1941 in Walla Walla Washington (one of the closest hospitals,) and raised with six brothers in Athena Oregon (18 miles north of Pendleton,) the son of a preacher man, Daniel Moore, went to college in Eugene for 3 years, then moved to Los Angeles to do music (1962.) Within two weeks he had a record deal, a lousy one (wrote his first song for it.) The year of 1963 was spent playing acoustic bass and singing backup with Jimmy Rogers, another northwesterner; and opening for him as a member of the Fairmount Singers. In 1965 he began producing records and publishing songs. In 1967 The Everly Brothers recorded Daniel's song, "Deliver Me".
1970 he joined Joe Cocker's, Mad Dogs and Englishmen group and went on tour. Did an album for ABC Records as an artist, produced a bunch of records and began writing in earnest. In 1973 his composition, "Shambala" became a million+ seller hit for Three Dog Night. Then another hit single"My Maria" by his co-writer; B.W. Stevenson. Joe Cocker recorded several of Daniel's songs in 1975 and 1976 for A&M Records. Bonnie Raitt recorded the title cut"Sweet Forgiveness" on Warner Bros. in 1976.

1979 Daniel produced Kim Carnes 1st album for EMI America Records, then in 1981 went on tour with her as a background singer. Meanwhile performing with Rabbit and the Renegade Band and The Moore Brothers Band in the Los Angeles area, Daniel continued his writing.

Recently (1996) Brooks and Dunn recorded "My Maria" and had a smash hit with it. Daniel co-wrote the song "Fire In The Hole" which was released in the Steven Seagal movie "Fire Down Below" (1997), also on the soundtrack CD-and The Band recorded the same song (1998).
(2005) Marcia Ball included a Daniel Moore/Jodi Seigel song named "So Many Rivers To Cross" on her Grammy nominated album titled "So Many Rivers."
2007 Joe Cocker recorded Daniel's song,"Just Pass It On" (Tumbuiza) and will be released in late March or early April 2007.
Still writing - Enjoy the music!!

DANIEL MOORE COMBINES ROOTS-ROCK, AMERICANA & ALT-COUNTRY ON HIS NEW CD
Songs composed by Daniel Moore have been recorded by many top rock, pop, country, folk, R&B, jazz and blues artists over the years including Joe Cocker, Brooks & Dunn, Three Dog Night, The Everly Brothers, Bonnie Raitt, Waylon Jennings, B.W. Stevenson, The Band, Maria Muldaur, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelma Houston, Kenny Rogers, Kim Carnes, Bobby Blue Bland, The Association, Marcia Ball, Jerry Jeff Walker, Colin James, Jennifer Warnes, Canned Heat, Levon Helm, David Cassidy, The Dillards, Don Nix, Pacific Gas & Electric, James & Bobby Purify, John Hartford, The Hughes Corporation, and David Clayton Thomas of Blood Sweat & Tears, and others. Now, on the new Daniel Moore album THE GIVEAWAY, he shares his versions of some of the hundreds of songs he has written.

Only his sixth album in four decades, Daniel Moore says: “It is a good selection of a lifetime of work as a songwriter.” The music (recorded between 1972 and 2006) is folky, rootsy and Americana-styled with a little blues and gospel thrown in. The best-known songs are “Shambala” (a big hit in 1973 by Three Dog Night) and “My Maria” and chart-topping pop hit in 1973 by B.W. Stevenson and a #1 country hit in 1996 by Brooks & Dunn. Joe Cocker originally recorded “Somebody I Trusted (Put Out The Light)” and “If I Love You;” Thelma Houston cut “Lost and Found;” and Bonnie Raitt covered “Sweet Forgiveness.”

The music is reminiscent of many of the rootsy bands that were prominent in the Seventies such as The Band, the Ozark Mountain Daredevils, New Riders of the Purple Sage, and the Amazing Rhythm Aces. Full of goodtime vibes and downhome feelings, this should appeal to country-rock retro fans, folk-rock aficionados, and current alt-country/Americana lovers.

Have a question on the lyrics of "Just Pass It On". The words, "Toombo iso" in the refrain... are they an African dialect? Or what language are they? Submit any reply to my above email. Thanks much
