ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Los Angeles, California-The home of Sunshine and Great California music in the 1970’s. The Sunset Strip, the Laurel Canyon Days. The great folk-rock music emerging from the days of the Beatles, the edgy 1960’s and the Summer of Love. A photograph book by Henry Diltz called “California Rock, California Sound “ explores all this. This is what brought me out here from Long Island , New York in 1978. My name is “STEEN” (surname Bill Edelstein). I’ve been a singer/songwriter since 1974. I’ve accompanied myself playing and writing. The music that has influence me ranges from the supergroups -The Beatles, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Neil Young, The Eagles, America, Poco to artists James Taylor, Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt & Tom Petty.



I’ve had the pleasure to have known Mark Moulin for 20 years-a wonderful friend, guitarist, co-writer/producer & partner (who was formerly a member of “The Electric Prunes”). He also shares these same influences and helped me put together this fantastic CD with musicians who have played with the influential artists previously mentioned. We have Leland Sklar and Bob Glaub on bass (whose credits include James Taylor, Jackson Browne, Crosby, Stills & Nash & Linda Ronstadt), Jai Winding on piano (who has recorded with Jackson Browne & Don Henley and has a co-writing credit on “New York Minute”), Aaron Wolfson on electric guitar whose credits include working with Jimmy Haskell, arranger for Sheryl Crow & Neil Young, and David Paich of “Toto.” The late-Mike Botts (who I’m happy to have known; “He will be remembered”)on drums & back-up vocals -whose credits include being the drummer for the group “Bread” & Linda Ronstadt’s Band, and Gary Mallaber on drums (who has performed with Steve Miller, Van Morrison & America).



The songs fit the genre of Classic-Rock/folk from a songwriter’s point of view; ranging from the styles of the Beatles, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Don Henley & Tom Petty. The engineering and mixing of this CD by Johno Brown (whose credits include Jefferson Starship), is a masterpiece, given by his all to help create an awesome production. The great writing of “STEEN & Moulin” & musicianship help to make the CD what it is. The tasteful lyrical melodies sung by “STEEN”, colorful harmonies and even personal commentary blend the musical accents and powerful background vocals giving a sound familiar to Crosby and Nash’s chilling but inviting harmonies. The eclectic skillful guitar styles of Mark Moulin throughout the whole album is a show in itself. The biting rock guitar lead work and co-writing of guest and close friend Aaron Wolfson is displayed on the last track of the CD “What About Me,” leaves you wanting more. By the way Aaron Wolfson has his own CD on CDBaby.com. (Please take a listen; he’s got some great songs). The guitar work throughout the "STEEN" CD resembles Neil Young, Tom Petty, Gin Blossoms & America. The beautiful, dancing piano work of Jai Winding circles and accents the lyrics and music so well you could hear the melodies of Bruce Hornsby, Elton John & Jackson Browne’s music. Leland Sklar, who seems like he’s played with everyone, displays this driving syncopated melody that keeps your adrenaline going. Bob Glaub gives you this punching but soothing sound on his fretless bass. The harmonica played in “Hearsay” and “It’s All in Your Mind” shows a haunting similarity again to Tom Petty and Neil Young. The dazzling drum work of Mike Botts adds to his soulful background singing on “Everybody but Me.” The solid & accentuated drumming displayed here by Gary Mallaber also provides the backbone for the tracks “Hearsay,” “Where Will We Be Tomorrow,” “Last time I Saw You,” & “What About Me.”

It was also an honor to have the renowned photographer Henry Diltz photograph most of the pictures on this CD. He has photographed some of my favorite albums I’ve collected since the 1970’s such as Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young’s first two albums, The Eagles first. & Desperado album, a number of America’s albums, & a few of Jackson Browne’s albums.



Aaron Wolfson stepped in to help create the graphics which compliments the vision for this CD.



You’ll find this CD will entertain you whereby the styles lend themselves to a cinematic quality suitable for film and television. This CD lyrically and musically will take you to different levels in life. This is a dream come true for me, made for you. So please enjoy.
Bill “STEEN” Edelstein

A must for all lovers of today's adult orientated music
Now this is exactly what the doctor ordered: well crafted songs and just what you'd expect from westcoast rock in the 21century. Steen goes all the way: melodies that simply won't leave your ear, tasteful harmonies and lyrics as well and "Why can't you see" is a smash hit that deserved to do well in the charts. Imagine a blend of America's "Alibi" and the early CSNY for the 21st century. Sadly enough there's only seven tracks on this marvellous CD. A treat to listen to! Buy it, you won't be disappointed!
