It is great pleasure for me to let you know that David Roberts is back with his 2nd solo album in early summer of 2008! As you fully know, David Roberts' 1982 masterpiece album "All Dressed Up" was reissued in July 2006 on CD by VIVID SOUND, Japan and many AOR / West Coast fans are expecting his brand-new album since then. Now in the spring of 2008, the wait is over! David Roberts' brand-new studio recording album will be released early summer of 2008, hopefully on 25 June by VIVID SOUND, Japan. The first recording session of this 2nd solo album was done in the Summer of 2007 in Los Angels with Greg Mathieson as the producer, who was the one producing "All Dressed Up" in 1982! David recorded 5 songs including self-cover version of "Before I Go" originally recorded by STARSHIP for their smash hit album "Knees In The Hoopla" (1986) and a song titled "Stay WIth Me", unreleased material recorded by John Waite (ex Babys) in early 90's. The backing up musicians are awesome; Michael Landau (guitar), Greg Mathieson (keyboards), Abe Laboriel (bass), Mike Baird (drums) and Luis Conte (percussion) gathered to record 5 tunes for this David's come-back album. The rest half of the album has been done in Nashville in March 2008, with Fred Mollin as the producer, best-known for America's 1980's album "Alibai" and/or Jimmy Webb's 1996 album "Ten Easy Pieces".
As far as I have listened to 5 tracks recorded during the L.A. recording sessions in the summer of 2007, all the tracks are really awesome. It is not too much to say that David's voice are tremendous and perfect. Greg Mathieson's producing are really great as before. And Michael Landau rules! Please endure just a little bit... then you will feel very happy with David Roberts' another masterpiece album coming summer. Stay tuned!
