CD Reviews

Lost jem
JR | Vail, Co. | 12/01/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If I could give this record 10 stars, I would do it on sound textures alone. Have thousands of records; have heard it all (go on ask me..oh yea I love that Diesel album too; love most of it, especially the '70s stuff: the Eagles and "Street Survivors," but if you put a gun to my head this album would be on my shortest list- maybe top three. It's what music is all about: escape, love, fun, heart, quirky melody, musical freedom. This guy not only played in Spirit and Jo Jo Gunne, but also jammed in the Joe Walsh circle, showing up on one of my other favs, "But Seriously Folks" on keys. He is a Beatle in California clothing. The whimsical pop/rock weekend ditty right off of '70s Block Iland, a total fantasy where the nuts are one mile off the mainland with no shortage of beer, wine and tents, playing in a sort of musical vollyball sand. Hearing Thunder Island in sunny August will spell you like a California surfer hearing his first Beach Boys' song. The title cut opens with a Joe Walsh slide setting the tone. "Night Shift," "Happy Too" and "Magic Moment" are my other loves. If your looking for that jem, the diamond in the ruff, no doubt if you haven't got a copy of this, don't ever think twice. IT will change your life."
Finally Back In Print!!
Mike S | Front Royal,Virginia United States | 12/19/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'm so glad to finally get this cd after being out of print for so long.THUNDER ISLAND is definately the best song on this cd,but there are several other good tunes to be heard on this cd such as LOVE IS COLD. Joe Walsh plays lead guitar on this album and does a great job. Ferguson lays down a very smooth style of an upbeat mixture of keyboard and electric guitar oriented rock and roll. I think this is Jay Ferguson second best cd behind 1979's REAL LIFE AIN'T THIS WAY."
Great CD By An Unsung Rocker
The Footpath Cowboy | Kingston, NY United States | 05/14/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"THUNDER ISLAND is the best solo CD ever by former Spirit/Jo Jo Gunne lead singer Jay Ferguson, with the title song being one of the great summertime anthems of all time. It still gets played on many classic rock and classic hits radio stations even today, and it's great that this album has come out on CD. In an age where all of the alternative rock bands are viewed as gods in all of their glory, it's nice to see good, real pop-rock making a comeback with such reissues as this one."
