Album Notes
As Reggie B' (aka Reggie Bannister), I was raised in Long Beach, California, heart of everything. As far as I'm concerned, I learned how to become exactly who I always knew I should be. From the time I could talk I would tell you what I wanted to be. I wanted to be a singer, an actor and a politician. Unfortunately in today's political arena, I'm too honest to achieve the latter. Which is probably why we now live among the pines in Crestline, California (San Bernardino mountains) and a stones throw from Lake Gregory.

"Jizz-Wailin' Ya'-Doggies.'

"Fool's Paradise:
AAA Rating... Funk, blues and country-tinged rock...Reggie Bannister has a nice touch for song writing...the playing is excellent!' - Jon - Aiding & Abetting

... So, there I was, tired as hell and half drunk from one of the most brutal flights I've ever taken between L.A. and Chicago.

I drag myself, my guitar, and gig-bag off the plane at O'Hare, look up, and standing there with shit-eating grins, holding Heineken's for me. were my friends - who whisked me away to Riley's Rock house where I found my band that became the 'Jizz Wailin' Ya Doggies' when we recorded 'Fools Paradise.'

Former groups/bands and events:

At something like 15 years of age, I auditioned for and was chosen to be in the non-profit, performance group, 'The Young Americans.' Over the years, I was in 'The Greenwood County Singers (four albums and four singles), Stone Country (one album), 'Jamie Rush, 'DeCastro and Bannister (where we opened for 'Steppen Wolf and 'Iron Butterfly.' There were more... but, like the West Coast Bodega and ''The Good Band,' they've all moved into the Tequila Sunrise of years.

To me it is the BEST!!
But I am very biased I have to Reggie is my Step-Father, I grew up with this in my life everyday when he was with my mom, and I loved every second of it. I have never heard anything from him that I haven\'t loved, from The Greenwood County Singers, To him, To Decastro and Bannister, Reggie B & The Jizz Wailin\' Ya\' Doggies, to The Reggie Bannister Band. But I can tell you that if you are ever privileged enough to just be present when he is just playing because he it is his first true love, ether by his self or with any of his assorted friends made through out his extraordinary and wonderful life, you will never forget it and it would be one of the most enjoyable moments of your life. Love you dad, C.J.


Having had an idea of the musical talent of Reggie Bannister from the song Have You Seen It that appeared at the end Of Phantasm: Oblivion i jumped at the chance to hear a full album's worth of material. I wasn't disappointed. The album starts with a bang, the first few tracks rock like classic 70s bands at their peak, but it's with later tracks that a real talent is unveiled, on Look at That Face there is a real sense of loss and emotion, from here it's on to the title track and Land of the Free, songs in which Reggie approaches the heights of Young and Dylan as he weaves stories of the times we live in with killer hooks and a laid back attitude. There is a genius to the simplicity to some of the lyrics, the playing by the band is masterful and Reggie's vocals sell the words to perfection. Can't wait to hear more.

classic rock and folk from the man from Phantasm
Just picked up a copy of this CD from the multitalented man from Phantasm fame- Reggie Bannister.

I like the mix of classic rock sounds with acoustic-tinged folksier stuff. What's great is that the songs demonstrate a pretty decent variety and breadth... unlike a lot of stuff today, all the songs don't sound the same. That's a good thing!

"Photographs of Mars" has some nice, poignant and personal songwriting in it. "Jealous Eyes" and "She Does it Real Good" start with a funky, catchy lick before launching into a propulsive, in-the-groove 70's rock groove. "Fools Paradise" is another succesful blending of acoustic guitars and bespeaks of some hard-won experience and wistful innocence lost. "Land of the Free" is a folksy, lighthearted and fun romp that puts things like personal freedom and intolerance in proper perspective. "Love That's Gone" has an almost American Indian, tribal sound to it. Overall, the tunes seem to strongly suggest a 70's rock influence with a folk influence and the whole CD is quite listenable.

Yep, overall, I'm really liking this CD.
