Reseña de álbum

A classic rock act issuing an album's worth of cover tunes that influenced them early on — sound familiar? It certainly should, as next to tribute and "unplugged" sets, albums comprised entirely of cover songs flooded the marketplace during the late '90s and early 21st century. Former Damn Yankees bandmates Tommy Shaw and Jack Blades (and also veterans of Styx and Night Ranger, respectively) were the next in line in 2007, with the release of the aptly titled Influence. Shaw and Blades always possessed great vocal harmonies together, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that the majority of the tunes on Influence are heavy on the harmonies, especially a fine reading of Seals & Crofts' "Summer Breeze," as well as Yes' "Your Move" and the Mamas & the Papas' "California Dreamin'." Next only to the Beatles and the Beach Boys, Simon & Garfunkel are often considered to be one of the first pop/rock acts to utilize vocal harmonies, and as a result, not one, but two Simon & Garfunkel covers reside here — a surprisingly hard rocking "I Am a Rock" and a more tranquil "The Sound of Silence." Impressively consistent from beginning to end, Influence is certainly one of the better "all-covers" albums of recent times.

Heard on Howard Stern

I heard Howard Stern's Show this morning and loved everything about this band, the sound, the songs...I can't wait for them to come to Arizona. I'll be there.

Well Crafted

There are two things you will like about this album. Not over done, not under done. They put together some of the best collection of covers I've heard. The best part, they are not trying to be stars, they are trying to bring you the song. Great 'windows down driving' album. You know all the words, you know the voices, you can't go wrong.

Good Stuff

I've always been a big fan of both Tommy Shaw and Jack Blades, solo and with their former bands. A child of the 70's, these songs still resonate with me today. As I sang along to each and every song on this collection, I get the sense that this is what they were shooting for. A great collection of songs, never veering too far from the original compositions that you heard on the AM radio in 1973. Shaw and Blades vocal harmonies are an unbelievable fit, like they were meant to sing these songs together.
