This man had a career with a duo called Batdorf and Rodney back in the 70´s when the legendary a&r man Ahmed Ertegun signed them. The guy is still around and has now released a CD that actually is a fresh and good moment in a mix of a singer songwriter tradition combined with a touch of the westcoast-scene a´la The Eagles, Venice and America. John´s voice is really impressing and is quite close to Don Henley´s in style. The beautiful and soft "Ain´t Like Home" ,the Eagles smelling "Me And You" and the Venice-smelling "Solitude" are three favorites. A pleasant album that won´t change the world but still need to be discovered if you like good singer songwriter rock with flirts of the 70´s scene from L.A / The Bay Area.
