My all-time "sleeper"

"I discovered The Freddy Jones Band back when "North Avenue Wakeup Call" was released. The alternative rock station in Boston had "Waitress" on their playlist and upon hearing it I was immediately intrigued. I purchased the cassette and was forever hooked! I must've played that tape more than any other cassette I had ever owned. The songs switch gears from ballads to rockers with an effortless,seamless flow .These guys display songwriting talents and musicianship that I find second to none. I feel that this CD could be re-released today and have a bigger impact.To me it's as relevant musically as any of the newer material I've listened to.
I was fortunate enough to have seen them play at a small venue in Boston and it furthermore baffled me as to why The Freddy Jones Band didn't attract more attention and the recognition that they obviously deserved!! To this day I can't figure how this band wasn't a huge success!
Why am I only the second reviewer?

"10 years ago, Albany, New York had a creative and independant radio station-WXLE. The listener was guaranteed to hear music not played on the other tight listed mainstream stations in the area. It was on this station that I was introduced to FJB. WXLE is long gone and so is FJB but in listening to North Ave Wake Up Call, the excitement and the flowing energy of the music is still so present. It's like listening to the best elements of the Allman Brothers and Little Feat with in my opinion better vocals. The music is so positive and life affirming with incredible mastery of the lyrics and the instruments. Say, maybe that's why they didn't last."
So Talented

"It'll be a while until you hear another group with this much talent... They're a rare gem that never hit the mainstream and maybe that's what keeps them so special in the fan base that still exists even years after they broke up."
