The debut solo album from Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ Benmont Tench, You Should Be So Lucky, will be released on February 21, 2014. Produced by legendary producer Glyn Johns, the album was recorded to tape at Sunset Sound in Los Angeles and features Tench handling lead vocals, piano and organs, joined by a team of collaborators including a core band of Don Was, Ethan Johns, Blake Mills and Jeremy Stacey and contributions by Ryan Adams, Gillian Welch & David Rawlings, Joel Jerome, Tom Petty and Ringo Starr.
At least once a year I get stuck in the Spirit section of The Basement. How this band is not regarded with the same reverence and respect as (in my opinion) many of their peers continues to puzzle me. They were years ahead of their time... hell the intro for "Stairway To Heaven" was unquestionably inspired (i.e. nicked) from Randy California's "Taurus".... click below for proof.
