Today is the official release date of For the Record: A Tribute to John Wicks. Here what a few people are saying about John’s latest compositions:
“One of the best tributes I’ve ever heard, one of the sincerest rock n roll love letters ever crafted. It’s a pure thrill to listen, a pure thrill to play”.
–Carl Cafarelli, This Is Rock ‘n’ Roll Radio
“Highlights on For the Record are plentiful: from Peter Case’s soulfully rockin’ “In & Out Motel” and Don Dixon’s wry, muscular “Money & A Fu Manchu” to Al Stewart’s wonderfully smooth “The Beltway” and Nick Guzman’s tear-inducing, disc-closing “Chasing Angels,” John Wicks’ golden tunes lend themselves to a variety of winning interpretations….”
–John M. Borack, Contributing Editor of Goldmine Magazine
“The decision on how to complete the final work of an iconic artist is usually not easy or obvious. Some of John Wicks’ many amazing friends have finished up the final statement he sadly wasn’t able to complete. A fitting tribute to one of the great talents of our time.”
–Ronnie Barrett of The Muffs
Featuring long time friends…and produced by the great Jamie Hoover, For The Record has a twangy yet reverent vibe, and definitely does the master justice.
–David Bash, CEO of The International Pop Overthrow Festival
