ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Steve Forbert meets early Paul Simon..." -- Perry Persoff, WXRV, New England's 92.5 The River

"...an intelligent, eclectic blend." -- Judith Pellowe, The Hippo Press, Manchester, NH

Independent Songwriter Magazine 4-Star Rating - "It seems that in this day of high-tech modernistic devices, we've lost the way back to bare bones production--where the story wasn't buried under a barrage of electronic alterations. What ever happened to those days?

Well, they're back, folks. In this little unassuming disc from Stacy Glen, we find the heart of the American songwriter in all it's basic glory. Stacy's guitar resonates with a warm glowing sound; a perfect frame for his low-key voice. It makes you wish the '60's were back again."

The melodic, literate songs on Alleyways include James Taylor and CSN influences ("West on 80," "Yellow Island"), rock/country crossovers ("Driving in the Country," "Yo-Yo"), blues-based rockers ("Sleeping on the Sidewalk," "Fugitive"), jazz-influenced ballads ("Sight of Snow," "New York City Woman") and the folk/rock anthem "Leaving Seattle." Stories of the road and romance emerge from the lyrics, and the tight arrangements feature organ, harmonica, mandolin, violin, and acoustic and electric guitar.

Alleyways was recorded over the span of six months in early 2001 at the studio of well-known Central PA producer/engineer/guitarist Chris Younken. Featured musicians include Scott Shenyo, Leslie Dyer, Tom Jordan, multi-instrumentalist Steve Buckalew, and backup vocalist Katy Dawn Twoey. Jon Rounds, guitarist for longtime regional favorites Cartoon, makes a special appearance on "Northern Lullaby."
