iTunes Editors’ Notes

At age 70, Garland Jeffreys works harder than kids half his age. The New York City troubadour who had the talent but not the fortune of his contemporaries—Bruce Springsteen, Graham Parker, Elvis Costello—is making up for the 13 years where he released nothing. Here, he's following up his excellent 2011 comeback album, The King of In Between, with 2013’s Truth Serum: another sturdy set filled with what was often called "neo-classic" rock ‘n’ roll in the '70s. These days, that means any band with electric and acoustic guitars, pianos, organs, and a rhythm section that nods toward soul music. Truth Serum has it all. The title track turns toward Chicago blues. “Any Rain” and “Is This the Real World” recall his vintage lyrical soul-based rock. “It’s What I Am” and “Ship of Fools” settle in for acoustic ballads that showcase Jeffreys’ cool, slippery urban delivery. “Dragons to Slay” explores his reggae influences, while “Collide the Generations,” “Colorblind Love," and “Revolution of the Mind” show he hasn’t lost his cultural edge.

Album of the Year!!!!

This is one great album, from the opening tracks to the last notes - all of the songs are top-notch and well-crafted with inspired and passionate singing by Jeffreys and great support by his band. He blew it out of the park with his previous album (The King of In Between) and he's done it again with Truth Serum! I hereby nominate Truth Serum for best album of the year - Grammys, do you hear me?
