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.

Gun
Race With The Devil, reached the UK Top Ten in December 1968, it catapulted power trio the Gun from the bowels of the London underground club circuit to the forefront of the British pop scene. Released a couple of months later, the group s self-titled debut album boasted an equally dazzling, idiosyncratic combination of hard rock ferocity and striking orchestral arrangements, and it can now be seen as a major stepping stone in the gradual metamorphosis of late 60s psychedelic rock into what would become known as heavy metal. This newly re-mastered reissue features contemporaneous single releases, rare photos and fresh quotes from founder member Paul Gurvitz.

Young had moved to Los Angeles in 1964 and began working with Van Dyke Parks and Stephen Stills while keeping his day job as a mailman. He formed Stone Country in 1967 and soon thereafter the band was signed to RCA Records. After releasing several singles, RCA issued the group's only album, Stone Country, in March 1968, produced by Rick Jarrard, who also produced Jefferson Airplane and Harry Nilsson's Pandemonium Shadow Show. The group disbanded when, in 1969, Young signed as a solo artist with A&M Records.
