Shaken Not Stirred

By  Phil Vassar

Very Good Condition (Initialed on cover by the Artist)

On his third album, singer-piano thumper Phil Vassar has made a couple of wise choices. He brought his own band into the studio while spending more of his own studio time tickling the ivories. With entertaining and insightful piano ballads like "Gone by Dawn," "Amazing Grace," and the stirring personal anthem "Black and Whites," Vassar emerges as something of a contemporary country-pop answer to Billy Joel. He's a little less convincing on evanescent chart fodder like "What Happens in Vegas" and the lusty "I'll Take That as a Yes," but when he lets his obvious pop-rock influences roam free on the keyboard he sounds masterful and built to last. --Bob Allen

A Review:

This CD is incredible! Every time I listen to it, I have a new favorite song. I guess this speaks to the fact that there is something for everyone... (and everyone's mood) In typical Phil fashion he captures us with songs (and stories) that we can all identify with in some way. A nostalgic look back, an optimistic look forward, a soulful look inside. I highly recommend this CD - - and taking in a live performance if he's in your area! The inclusion of his band in the recording of this CD "brings it all home" for us.TracklistHide Credits
