Album Notes
This album is about just starting out. It tells the story of a brash youth who meets "the cutest thing that God has yet conceived," and her love transforms him into an actual human being. Saucy rockers, mostly … but I think it's the ballads (cuts 4 and 10), agonizing over the need for love and a novice's fear of it, that are the standouts in this collection.

I GOT PLANS is dedicated to the memories of Gilda Radner, Frederick Coffin, and Robin Welch.

"I Got Plans" Get it !
First things first. I hand out 5 star ratings very frugally. John Slade's CD "I Got Plans" is a Rock Musical masterpiece. It incorporates many moods, expectations, and emotions that one would expect from an aspiring 20 something artist, but from the standpoint of a mature musician. The instrumentation, arrangements, and vocal approach vary from song to song according to the story that John is portraying. Ballads and good old fashioned rockers are here...songs about life and times and people. A great listen in the car or cranked up on the boom box while working in the backyard. As any good record it gets better with repeated listens. I only wish that it was twice as long !

"I Got Plans" is as good as Slade's first CD
This CD is as gritty, witty and satisfying as his first CD "Boomertown" and just as ironically honest. His voice is clear and compelling and has just the right amount of soul. If you were ever young and wayward, or still are, this CD is for you. I love it!!!
