Drummer and singer-songwriter Phil Seymour came on the scene with a Top 20 hit with the Dwight Twilley Band called "I'm On Fire" in 1975. After two albums with his Tulsa band-mate, Phil decided to go solo and landed a hit single of his own called "Precious To Me" on his self-titled 1980 debut album on Boardwalk Records label.

Before that Phil experimented with various musicians in the studio including singing background vocals on Tom Petty's "Breakdown"and "American Girl" and played around Los Angeles in the burgeoning live music scene of the late 1970s.

The London and Los Angeles Unreleased Sessions, Volume 4 features two of these recording sessions that took place in this era - one in London with legendary UK session guitarist Chris Spedding, and one in Los Angeles where he was backed by Steve Allen and Ron Flynt of the band 20/20!

Eric Knoxx presents

By public demand, I finally decided to gather an album of some covers I played with the various bands I was in. 

Chronologically speaking, it all began in 1991 with The Vice Barons. If everything goes according to the plan, the long awaited come back album should finally see the daylight in 2018. 

In 1998, I moved on to form The Mighty Gordinis that lasted till 2008. I'm still quite proud of the 2 last cds we put out, the fully instrumental, named "Fueled on Fuzz", and the very last one, "The Future Looks Like Yesterday", which is still my personal favorite. 

After that, with my pal Vincenzo we put up The Ratboys. Shortly after the release of the Ratboys' debut album "Cash, gas and Trash" we started to work on new songs for a second album but it appeared that all the songs were more 60's garage influenced and would not fit under the Ratboys moniker. 

So we decided to release it under the name Thee Martian Boyfriends. Unfortunately we got kicked out of our rehearsal space and lost the keyboard player around the same time, so that was more or less the end of it. 

In 2013, a short lived band named Syster Hyde rose from the ashes of a Vice Barons reunion gig but nothing came out of it except this Kraftwerk song which was later covered instrumentally for the The Vice Barons album to come. 

Finally, in 2016, I released under the Moniker The Backseat Angels what appeared to be a solo record.

Scott Morgan - Medium Rare 1970 -2000

Scott Morgan- Medium Rare 1970 -2000
In Wav - Scans are included

1 Full Of Fire
2 Satisfier
3 Rhythm Communication
4 Hold On Baby
5 The Monkey Time
6 Open The Door To Your Heart
7 Radio Hollywood
8 Free Rock
9 Pop Poppies
10 Zip A Dee Doo Dah
11 Cool Breeze
12 She's Wild
13 Satisfyin' Love

The Rationals were one of the greatest Midwestern bands of their day (1965-1970), and leader and vocalist Scott Morgan blended blue-eyed soul and hard rock commitment as well as anyone you can name. Medium Rare: 1970-2000 brings together 13 rare and unreleased Morgan cuts that begin with the waning days of the Rationals (an impossibly soulful take of "Zip a Dee Doo Dah" from 1970; there are also three potent performances from a 1991 Rationals reunion), and stretches right up to 2000, with a demonic guitar-fueled rocker called "Satisfyer" (it lives up to its title). In between, Morgan jumps, shouts, and knocks everyone out with gutsy R&B and high-octane rock & roll tunes that showcase his strong pipes, tough guitar work, and smart/witty/streetwise point of view. Scott Morgan is one of the great untapped resources of American rock & roll, and if you want to find out what he has to offer, Medium Rare: 1970-2000 offers 58 minutes of proof that, then and now, the man has the goods.

The Del Fuegos - Boston, Mass

The Del Fuegos - Boston, Mass
In WAV - Scans are included

1. Don't Run Wild  
2. Hand in Hand  
3. I Still Want You  
4. Sound of Our Town  
5. Fade to Blue  
6. It's Alright  
7. Hold Us Down  
8. Night on the Town  
9. Shame  
10. Coupe de Ville  

Released in 1985  Boston, Mass was their first national album, and it still holds up next to any band of today. Almost every song of the ten is a keeper. "Don't Run Wild" is the big hit, but the entire album is great. The other Fuegos albums are great but this is THE one to have.It has all the raw energy that all the best and essential rock and roll records have and there isn't a bad song.

Special Thanx to JPaul for this excellent contribution!
