You probably heard Alabama-born multi-instrumentalist Will Owsley before you heard of him; he was a mainstay in the bands of Amy Grant and Shania Twain during the mid-'90s. He then pulled a Tom Scholz of Boston-style maneuver and recorded his own album, which he shopped to the major labels as a take-it-or-leave-it deal. The Giant label bit, as well they should have; Owsley is one of the better power pop albums of the '90s and certainly one of the best power pop debuts ever to come down the pike (that this self-recorded album got a Grammy nom for best engineered album is further testimony as to Owsley's many talents). You'll hear a little Cars, a little Todd Rundgren, and a healthy helping of Owsley's former bandmate Ben Folds, but the crunch of Owsley's guitars makes sure the "power" gets as much play as the "pop." Highlights include "Oh No the Radio," "Coming Up Roses," and "Good Old Days," but really this is a remarkably consistent album, full of hooks and some sonic surprises (cello! Organ!). Owsley makes it's LP debut in a tan vinyl edition limited to 1000 copies, complete with a full-color inner sleeves. You'll be playing some of these songs on repeat in your head after a couple of listens. A1. Oh No the Radio A2. I'm Alright A3. Coming Up Roses A4. Good Old Days A5. The Sky Is Falling A6. Sentimental Favorite B1. Zavelow House B2. Sonny Boy B3. The Homecoming Song B4. Uncle John's Farm B5. Class Clown/Class Clown (Reprise)
