More Than a One Hit Wonder
Melvin Ah Ching | Honolulu Hawaii | 10/27/2000

"OK. Everyone knows Walter Egan for his hit "Magnet & Steel." Indeed it is a great song. You'll be treated to some great pop-rock stuff here. Besides the hit, tracks that should have been hits are also included: "The Blonde in the Blue T-Bird" is one of my favorites and for some reason it makes me think of Suzanne Summers in the (white) T-Bird from the movie "American Graffitti." The track "Hot Summer Nights" was probably the next single from this album, but guess what? A group called "Night" released it and that version became the hit. Now that this is on CD, Walter's "Fundamental Roll" and "Hi-Fi" should also be issued."
"Magnet & Steel" was just the tip of the iceberg here...

"Walter Egan on his solo projects was pure California sunshine, with a bit of well-utilized help from his friends Lindsey Buckingham & Stevie Nicks, so some of the material tends to sound close to Fleetwood Mac in overall style. Not that there's anything wrong with that! This is some of the finest stuff from that era and really has held up well over the years. Do yourself a favor: if you purchase this album, you owe it to yourself to hunt down his first, "Fundamental Roll". Together these two albums are excellent, fun to listen to and totally captivating from start to finish. If all you think of when you hear the name Walter Egan is "Magnet & Steel", you're really cheating yourself. Songs like "The Blonde in the Blue T-Bird", "Hot Summer Nights" (and his version far outshines the hit single version by Night a year or two later, HIS is the one that should have been screaming out of billions of radios) and from the earlier album, "Only the Lucky", "Tunnel O' Love" and "Yes I Guess I Am" are just proof that there needs to be more justice on the charts and on the air. In a more perfect world, every one of these songs would be huge hits. There are unsung heroes apart from their one huge solo hit single...Jay Ferguson is one...Walter Egan is definitely another. Buy this album, You deserve it."
I Bought it in 1978!

"That's right. I was a fan before anyone really knew Stevie Nicks was on the album. I bought all the other albums by Walter Egan after that, and know all the songs like they are friends. The content for Not Shy is not typical 70's music, and is very listenable NOW. I think it is fabulous that a whole new group of fans are discovering the true talent of these artists, and the incredible ability as songwriters that they possess!"
