John Andrew Parks - John Andrew Parks

John Andrew Parks
It should have sold a million – but it didn’t! This is your second chance to add one of the best albums ever recorded to your collection.

An emotion-filled voice with a three-octave range, John is affectionately known in Country Music circles as the "Country Eastern” boy. Kenny Rogers said of him:
". . . one of the greatest singer-songwriters I’ve heard in 20 years”;

And Willy Nelson is quoted as saying:
"what a gift . . . what a voice, and I sure do like his songs”.

John Andrew Parks’ road to Nashville took him in many different directions from his Texan birthplace. His first recording contract, signed in Los Angeles at eighteen, proved a false start and he moved on to open a studio in New York City. A song he wrote, ‘Planet Texas’, turned him around again when it caught the ear of Kenny Rogers. Rogers recorded it, it became a gold record and its writer became a Capitol Records artist. This album, recorded in 1990, contains his own version of ‘Planet Texas’.

The album, which Parks co-produced, features a stunning array of supporting talent. Guitarists include British rocker Chris Spedding and multi-talented Californian Andrew Gold, while no less a player than Eagle Joe Walsh adds slide. Beatles sideman Billy Preston weights in on organ, Fernando Saunders (Lou Reed) and Bob Glaub (Warren Zevon, CS&N) are among the bass players, with Bread’s Michael Botts adding drums and percussion. The backing vocalists too, are a star-studded choir: Gerry Beckley (America), JD Souther and Timothy B Schmit (Eagles) and Steve Augeri (Journey) are among the names involved.
