Hornsby, Bruce

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Hornsby, Bruce - A Night On The Town A Night On The Town
Pop Used - LP 2041 RCA
Extremely Hard To Find 1990 Original With Custom Glossy Inner Sleeve. “Bruce Hornsby's Hardest-Rocking Album, A Night On The Town Announces That He Is Heading Into A Different Direction In Its First Few Notes. John Mellencamp's Producer Don Gehman Gives The Sound, Especially John Molo's Drums, A Feel Reminiscent Of Mellencamp's Best Work. The Material Here Is Among Hornsby's Best, And Guest Players Include Jerry Garcia, Tenor Saxman Wayne Shorter, Banjo Virtuoso Béla Fleck, Vocalist Shawn Colvin (Before She Was Known), And Jazz Bass Legend Charlie Haden. The Arrangements Still Include The Mix Of Synthesized And Real Percussion, And The Trademark Piano Licks Are Sprinkled Abundantly Throughout, But The Overall Feel Is Much More Rock & Roll Than Anything Before Or Since. The Songs Are Great, With A Political Edge To "Fire On The Cross" And "Barren Ground." The Latter Features Garcia's Lead Guitar, The Former A Fine Shorter Sax Solo. "Lost Soul" Is One Of The Most Profound Ballads Hornsby Has Composed, Sung As A Duet With Colvin. The Single, "Across The River," Is A Powerful Look At The Pursuit Of One's Dreams In The Face Of Local Naysayers, And The Subsequent Return To One's Hometown With The Resultant "I-Told-You-So's." With A Night On The Town, Bruce Hornsby Achieves A Mix Of Mostly Up-Tempo Rock Music, Adult Lyrical Themes, And Crisp Production Values That Has Seldom Been Matched By Other Popular Musicians Of His Generation. Though It Only Peaked At Number 20 (His First Two Albums Had Reached The Top Five), It Is An Artistic High Point.” Jim Newsom, AMG.... more details
 
Hornsby, Bruce - Harbor Lights Harbor Lights
Pop Used - LP 66114 RCA
Beautiful 1993 Original Only Released On Vinyl In The Netherlands. Record Appears Unplayed. Includes Custom Inner Sleeve. First Copy We Have Ever Seen. “Leaving Behind The Range, Bruce Hornsby Trades Heartland Rock For A Cooler, Jazzier Sound With Harbor Lights, An Album That Nonetheless Retains His Affinity For Sincere Portraits Of American Life, Love, And Heartache. The Title Track Is A Humid, Celebratory Song That Evokes A Romantic Summer Evening In The South, Setting The Stage For A Collection Of Humanistic Songs. If The Album Has An Underlying Theme, It's The Necessity Of Seeing Yourself And The Ones You Love Through The Hard Times As Well As The Good. The Purely Upbeat Songs, Like "Rainbow's Cadillac" And "What A Night," Are Counterbalanced By The Sober "Fields Of Gray" And "Tide Will Rise," And The Cultural Commentary Of "Talk Of The Town." The Music Is Uniformly Excellent, With Hornsby's Piano Work Blending Seamlessly Into The Rich Arrangements. Each Song Usually Ends With An Extended Instrumental Section, But These Flow Naturally Instead Of Feeling Like Tacked-On Jam Sessions. And Hornsby Isn't Just Showing Off Here, As He Lets Other Voices, Like Branford Marsalis' Sax And Pat Metheny's Guitar, Get Their Say. In Later Albums, Hornsby's Focus On Music Would Tend To Overtake His Lyrical Content, But Harbor Lights Marks The Point At Which He Found The Right Balance Between Virtuosic Playing And Personal Storytelling.” – Skyler Miller, AMG... more details
