The latest album from Steve Forbert, Over With You was released on September 11, 2012.
You may recall I have written about Steve several times and most recently, voiced my disappointment with the last time we traveled to Atlanta to see Steve live.
I almost decided not to download the album, but am glad I did. If Steve can keep doing this, maybe we will get 30 more years before he is “out of here”.
I have been listening to this new music as much as I could since downloading it Tuesday afternoon…it reminds of the music I fell in love with in the late 70′s-early 80′s while at college. Steve has captured the magic that seemed to have been missing in the last few studio albums, (sorry, buddy, but welcome home).
Here is a 28 minute interview with Steve at the studio of WSM in Nashville, promoting the new album. In the interview, he briefly acknowledges the show from Atlanta that I referenced above.
This is a shorter, interview with Steve, discussing the album, along with a video for one of the new songs and then a promo for another.
Steve Forbert is one of the great songwriters/musicians of my generation. It is unfortunate that he is not as well known as he deserves to be.
You can help change that.
