Past reviews of previous album
PURE POP RADIO REVIEW :A Good Hat Indeed is the follow up to the first album from Tommy Sistak, Short Songs. A Good Hat Indeed follows in the same tradition of Short Songs with quick little melodic songs that take a page from music from the 1960's when AM Radio filled the airwaves. Drawing from artists as diverse as The Beatles, The Monkees, Harry Nilsson to Cheap Trick. Recent review of one of the tracks from Alan Haber at Pure Pop Radio : Tommy Sistak | “If I Only Knew” And now, something pretty much completely different from the great Tommy Sistak–a song that would have sat comfortably on AM radio playlists back in the golden ’60s alongside the old-timey pop of the New Vaudeville Band. The ukelele and the washboard–certainly the first instance of this colorful instrument in Pure Pop Radio history–propel Tommy’s tune, which he classifies as “skiffle pop,” into the charming track hall of fame. As catchy and wonderful as his previous songs have been, this one may well be our favorite. It might wind up being yours, too. Quite groovy in so very many ways. So give a listen if you will. Might be something there you might enjoy.
KOOK KAT MUSIK REVIEW: : “A Good Hat Indeed” follows in the same tradition of “Short Songs” with quick little melodic songs that take a page from music from the early/mid-60's when AM radio filled, and ruled, the airwaves. Drawing from artists as diverse as The Beatles, The Monkees, Harry Nilsson to Cheap Trick, it’s a pop delight from start to finish!

GOLDMINE MAGAZINE/JOHN BORACK : ‘60s British pop to the max is the story here, with Illinois boy Tommy Sistak paying homage to that golden area with songs that recall Herman’s Hermits, Freddie and the Dreamers and – duh – the Beatles. A lot of these songs also bear a rather striking vocal similarity to his Illinois pop brothers Pezband (such as “Yeah She Said So”), and all ten of the tunes on A Good Hat Indeed are winsome bits o’pop that you’ll enjoy if your tastes lean to the summery side. Grade: B

POWERPOPAHOLIC REVIEW: A Good Hat Indeed is the follow up to the first album from Tommy Sistak, Short Songs. The same tradition of early Beatlesque melodies continues with the opener “Not About You,” with a driving riff opening up the multi-tracked harmonies. While its faithful to the source, the chorus of “Its There For You” is a catchy gem that would’ve hit big on AM radio playlists back in the mid ’60s.
The fab “You Can Have Your Way With Me” and “A Better Time” will appeal to Beatle fans, but I’m glad Tommy does vary the style slightly through the album. “If I Only Knew” is a charmer in the skiffle-beat tradition with ukulele and the washboard as primary instruments. “Sure Like Your Love” is a mid tempo ballad that keeps the mood upbeat, and overall while not every melody here hooks you there are enough gems to keep you satisfied.
