John Kay & Company: The Lost Heritage Tapes (CD)
1997—This John Kay solo release was recorded in 1976 but was shelved and forgotten due to changes in record label affiliation. Now available for the first time, it features guest performances by Lowell George & Bill Payne (of Little Feat), Nicky Hopkins, and the Tower of Power Horns, among others. A mix of various styles and a broad range of songs make this record unusually rich in musical textures and contrasts. Songs: Down In New Orleans, Business is Business, Captain of Your Destiny, Live Your Life, Sweet Memories, Nothing But, Hey I’m Alright, Sound Of The Crowd, You’ve Had Your Fun, Hurricane Maryann.
