Phil Seymour album for sale Product Description



Though a relatively minor figure in the power-pop movement (he played and wrote songs with Dwight Twilley), Phil Seymour's 1981 solo album is something of a pop gem. From the lead-off track and hit single "Precious to Me" to '50s-styled groovers like "Let Her Dance" to slinky psychedelic rockers like "Don't Blow Your Life Away," PHIL SEYMOUR is filled with tight, feel-good arrangements along with layered, Badfinger-esque harmonies and shimmering, perfectly constructed melodies.   ...See Full Description

Far More Than "Precious" To Me
Phil Seymour started out as Dwight Twilley’s partner in The Dwight Twilley Band (the pair recorded the classic “I’m On Fire” in 1975). In 1980, Seymour released his self-titled debut album to pretty favorable reviews. The biggest hit was the power-pop classic “Precious To Me”. I came across it in the cut-out bin in 1992. I bought it only for the song I liked, but I was amazed at how much good stuff lurked in the other tracks: the upbeat “Baby It’s You”, the fast and angry cover of the Go-Go’s “We Just Don’t Get Along”, the I-don’t-care vibe of “Let Her Dance”, and the passion in “I Really Love You”. For years, the only song you could find from Phil Seymour - on CD or otherwise - was “Precious To Me”, and that was only on compilation discs. Finally – FINALLY – someone got the idea to re-release it on CD. There’s even three bonus tracks. The album sounds as good as ever, crisp and clean. The unreleased tracks sound a little rawer, a little unfinished. Seymour’s voice sounds a little bit dialed-down on these; I don’t know if they were originally contenders for space on this album or not, but I think they would have fit well with a touch more polish. My only gripe is with the insert. It has a few photos and quotes from various publications and musicians who worked with Phil. I would have preferred a full bio or a complete lyric sheet. But I’m so pleased that this has finally seen the light of CD release. Any time a favorite album gets cleaned and pressed for CD re-release, it’s a day to celebrate. I’ve already done that. Now it’s your turn.

Rest In Peace, Phil. You are missed!
This is one of the best pop-rock albums I had ever purchased and had waited many years to find it on CD at a cheap price. CD Universe gave me all of the Phil Seymour "bang" for very affordable "buck." Just getting a CD version of "Baby It's You" was worth what I spent. If you like early 80's pop-rock music, this is a great place to start!

PHIL SEYMOUR= MAJOR POP FIGURE*
Precious To Me was a Billboard top 30 hit and there could have been 2 or 3 more smashes from this still thrilling disc. What a voice! * Phil was a major influence on many pop singers - ask Robin Zander or Peter Case or Doug Fieger or Darren Hayes (Savage Garden)...
