Product Notes

The Steely Dan of Bromley Way, the England Dan and John Ford Coley of Roswell, the Captain and Tennille of metro Atlanta -- this dynamic duo is here to bring on the HITS! Hey Everybody! It's The Taybacks second album!!! The basement-studio wizards' 2000 debut, 'The Universe Winks...' captivated critics and listeners in the USA, Canada, and Europe with stellar pop/rock songs and high-energy arrangements, tempered by a decade of live work in the trenches of the alt-rock 90's. But this time out, The Taybacks secretly switch your alternative crystals with something far from instant: 70's-style soft rock! 'Selling Air' is either a loving tribute or an achingly close parody of 70's supergroups (i.e. Steely Dan, Fleetwood Mac, America, Poco, and Ambrosia) and singer-songwriters (i.e. Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Jim Croce, Harry Chapin). Eleven carefully carved out rock ditties with a vintage attitude just made for the last days of AM and the first days of FM. But BEWARE THE SOFT ROCK CONSPIRACY! Listen to this testimonial... 'Hey, I thought he made me those tapes of Steely Dan just to be nice. The first one's always free-- that's how you get hooked. Then it's too late. Don't you know that it can lead to the softer stuff? Pretty soon you're doing Joni Mitchell and Cat Stevens, maybe a little Al Stewart on the side. A little America or Poco isn't going to hurt you, right? You say, 'Hey, I can stop anytime. Soft rock doesn't control my life.' And you're only listening to Neil Diamond and John Denver for the 'camp value'. That's what you tell your friends, your wife, yourself, but you're not fooling anyone. You can lie to the world, but that stack of Carpenters 8-tracks in your sock drawer tells the real story. Your life is being swallowed by the whirlpool of soft rock addiction. And soon, there you are, face down in the gutter listening to Paul Williams on a stolen walkman...' So if you think you can resist the dark side (or better yet, if you know you can't), break out the polyester and make pretend your CD player is an 8-Track, because The Taybacks are back--and in full vintage effect!
