Album Notes
Graceful Overload

They make the air rumble with their music, yet Patti Smith, John Hiatt, Robbie Robertson, Joe Strummer and the others on this collection display a balance between discipline and danger. Power and grace coexist as these artists skillfully serve their rock & roll muses.

For them, it’s always been much more than posturing or attitude. They’ve become demolition experts- knowing when to implode and when to explode.

Welcome to this place of no mercy. You’re inside a roaring steel factory and someone is screaming out the facts, hammering out decrees about love, sex, and the American way. They’re going to be heard and they’re pulling no punches. Time is short and there’s too much on their minds to sugar coat what they’ve got to say.

In this place every story is told with passion. The words are as electrified as the music. Whether it’s the man telling you how good a girl looks when she’s walking away. Or the guy with a two-pack-a-day voice, sharing the hush-hush details of being in his woman’s arms; the older but wiser punk rocker, not long for this world, reminding a friend of happier days; or the woman who wants to end the war.

This moonstruck Records compilation CD features some daring tracks from artists you know, and some you'll want to know better. You can click through to our website to read more about the artists and their songs.
