iTunes Review

Dan Fogelberg’s fourth album, from 1977, is also his artistic statement, which is saying a lot. It melds country, pop, rock ‘n’ roll, balladry, and folk to seemingly complex orchestrations and themes. But it never sounds overbearing or maudlin, and that’s key. Songs lift, haunt, or soothe in equal measure. The title tune is a hushed ode to a lonely place of reminiscence; “Dancing Shoes” metaphorizes loss of innocence; and “False Faces” tells of duplicitous people and the places one finds everywhere but at home. Guest players (including Don Henley, J.D. Souther, Joe Walsh, and Tim Weisberg) add lots of musical weight.

It had been a long time...

This was the first Dan Fogelberg album I had heard. I was stationed on Okinawa with a Marine Harrier Detachment at Kadena AB. One of my fellow Marines played this for a few of us in his room on his terrific stereo rather loudly, but not so loud as a typical rock concert... The volume allowed me to pick up on some of the subtelties of the music. Fogelberg is a brilliant, sensitive (and I don't mean "girly") lyricist. His music is what I call "full", and rich. He excels at creating moods with his arrangements. As I listened - and I should mention that no one in this normally very boisterous, talkative group said a word during the entire album - I read the cover notes and the lyrics, which he provides to the listener. I found that not only is he a great lyricist, but he also plays nearly every instrument under the sun. It actually says "all instruments played by Dan Fogelberg, except where noted" - it isn't noted very often. Only the orchestra was not Dan... As I said, this was my first time hearing him, I immediately went out and bought his earlier three albums, "Home Free", "Souvenirs", and "Captured Angels". I was not disappointed in any of them. And he hasn't disappointed me since then. If you haven't heard Dan before, this is a terrific one to start with...My personal favorite album is .. Heck! I can't name a favorite - they are all great. Sadly, Dan been diagnosed with cancer and hasn't performed or recorded in some time - let's hope he gets better so he can resume writing music such as this...

RIP Dan

I wa a fan from the get go.... His music was beautiful and set my soul soaring with his musical arrangements! He will be missed!

NETHER LANDS

Released in 1977 this is the seminal album by Dan Fogelberg. It is Fogelberg at his best. The sweeping arrangements and simple poetry of his lyrics shows an artist who has matured and moves within his style with confidence that is not marred by self-conciousness or self-indulgence. He knows what he wants to say and how to say it. His guitar work is crisp and precise. His voice is strong and haunting at the same time. There are no weak points in this marvelous tour de force by Dan Fogelberg. Download the album, relax and enjoy.

If James Taylor epitomized the definition and the original, late-'60s incarnation of the term singer/songwriter, Dan Fogelberg exemplified the late-'70s equivalent of that term at its most highly developed and successful, with a string of platinum-selling albums and singles into the early '80s and a long career afterward, interrupted only by a health crisis that led to his untimely death in 2007. He came out of a musical family, born Daniel Grayling Fogelberg on August 13, 1951, in Peoria, IL, where...
