Win an autographed copy of “In a Very Short Time,” the new CD from Michael Stanley. All you have to do is enter your email address below.
As the CD begins with “The Reckoning,” after the haunting bass from Eroc Sosinski, we quickly hear Michael Stanley’s rich baritone, which has drawn in fans of his Midwest rock style since the ‘70s. By mid-verse, Jennifer Lee joins on vocals, who adds depth to each of the songs, and by the end we are absorbed listening to the mighty electric guitar of Danny Powers.
The soothing title tune, “In a Very Short Time,” offers an eye-opening reality, “In a very short time this will be a long time ago,” with Bob Pelander providing a soft keyboard backdrop.
For the powerful finale of the thirteen song set, “Where Do We Turn,” legendary sound engineer Bill Szymczyk certainly had his hands full mixing this number where everybody plays to the maximum. Marc Lee Shannon’s vocals are added to those of Michael Stanley and Jennifer Lee. Rodney Psyka’s percussion adds to Tommy Dobeck’s drumming and Danny Powers shines again on lead guitar.
