    Thank You Delilah. A nice review for Don's album. He sure had some heavy hitters work with him this time around. Like I said before, I love the album cover- very cool.

    Glad he is getting great reviews! I think he picked the right song for the title cut. Considering the bulk of what's out there now, I know myself and a lot of folks are ready for some good ol' "American Rock"n Roll"!

    “Hearts On Fire” is a gleefully funky rock song with a huge hook that’ll instantly become stuck in your ear."

    That's a nice review! I don't think the reviewer realizes it's a Randy song tho.

    My copy came a little while ago. Musically there's more diversity than his previous albums, which is nice. The standout tracks for me are probably Hearts on Fire(which is an original song not a cover), Limelight and Sun. The Way Things Have To Be, You're My World and Falling In Love are decent ballads. American Rock N Roll, Charmed and Rock You are good rockers. She Just Doesn't Get It and Little Latin Lover didn't leave much of an impression on me. None of the songs are bad though. It's a pretty solid album.

    I'm definitely excited to give it a listen. I preordered the CD on Amazon, but I'm traveling until mid week next week so I won't be able to listen to the CD until then. My plan is to stream it on Spotify soon.

    I definitely want to hear less "You Don't Have Me" and "Wash Away" from Felder and more "Girls In Black" and "Road To Forever". I felt the Road To Forever album was largely forgettable, and I also feel that way about Walsh's Analog Man. I just think they haven't aged well and none of it is in my current rotation. I listen to Heavy Metal and Bad Girls more often than I do anything from Road To Forever. And I love pretty much all Walsh albums up to But Seriously Folks. I wish JW would do a new album, with less of the ELO-styled cheese on it and no Jeff Lynne, lol. I have high hopes for American Rock N' Roll. I really love the title.

    Oh nooo! That's a bit of a bummer. I like the title track though.

    Thanks for the review, whitcap. I actually like Little Latin Lover. To think that could have been on LROOE. Rock You so far is my favorite (with Sammy Hagar vocals, I believe) but I’ve only heard about half the songs. I guess I’m the only one who doesn’t care for the title track. It’s kind of hokey, imo.

    So I gave it a listen today on Spotify. I really like the lyrics and the guitar work is just amazing. I really love his guitar tone on the rockers. But I can't get over that voice. It's just not my thing. Still, I love listening to hear Felder play that Les Paul and crank it up and I'm happy to support him solo and hopefully I'll see him in concert again someday.

    My favorite on this disc is "Rock You".
