Album Review

Originally released in 1984 on Danny O'Keefe's own Coldwater label, The Day to Day was re-released in 2000 on Miramar without a lot of fanfare. The album is comparable in sound to other '80s productions such as Don Henley's Building the Perfect Beast, but also shows O'Keefe's potent and relevant songwriting skills to be still intact. The first track, "Along for the Ride," could have been a major hit for O'Keefe had he received the promotion, or at least the recognition, that he deserved. A video was produced for the song and it was played in the early days of VH1. Although it and "Someday" charted on the adult contemporary Top 20, the album failed to garner as much attention as the works of O'Keefe's contemporaries. Other standout tracks such as "Night School" and "Sidewalk Symphony" showcase O'Keefe's unique lyrical style and his penchant for strong musical landscapes to propel his songs. The Day to Day's 2000 re-release contains a few songs not on the original 1984 album, such as the stellar "Everything in Grey," taken from O'Keefe's self-released 1989 album Redux. O'Keefe's superbly crafted songs are adorned with a blend of acoustic and synthesized instrumentation in pure '80s fashion.
