CD Reviews

We all grew up playing together..Steve, Kay, miss ya!

"Okay, here's what it was like. We would all get together at Daved Kalish's house (Yeah, Dave from Beckmire Brothers and Rickie Lee Jones--he had the big basement). All the Phila players would be there: Kay Willians, Steve Green, Louis Johnson, "Stawberry" (remember him, on bass?), "Tapestry" (what a band), Sumi "Morris" Tonoka (a few times), Rob Sultzman (world best guitar player-with his White Falcon), myself (always), Steve Berlin (went to Cali and started something like, oh yeah, Los Lobos) and so many others.
Anyway, we all knew that everybody at Dave's house were the best players in the country, the issue was producers (marketing). That's what happend to Breakwater and the other super funk Plilly bands. Warners ans some of the other labels had really bad marketing teams. Can you imagine Breakwater not being "good enough" to be pumped with N's (money)? Everybody that wrote a review here is right--this is beyond the beyond, and I was in the studio for some of it. And, I heard some of these tunes coming to be (slowly and with lots of sweat, disagreement, and attention to every detail. Great stuff (we all thought the Spashdown recording, though slightly better in production values, was not a perfect second outing. But still great, by any standerd.
I know that some of the past reviewers have to know each other. I challege anyone who recognizes my name to email me so we might see about getting everybody back together--you never know....."
Waited Forever for this!

"My best friend from high school introduced me to Breakwater's music back in the late 70's. She had the original album, and my uncle had the Splashdown 8-track tape. I've had both of these on CD for about 7 years now, but I had to order them from Japan. They were definitely worth the cost, and the wait. My favorites from both CDs are No Limits, Work it Out, You know I love you, Say you love me, Time, Love of My life.

If you love true "Old School", you definitely need to add Breakwater's CDs to your collection."
