ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This CD "Tight Turns in the Sunset" is my second solo CD. It follows last year's debut "Big Man Talkin'" also released and available at CDBaby.com.

This LP is a little more rockin' than the last album and features the playing of Jim Mercik on guitar, banjo, and dobro; Jonathan Lichtig on drums; myself on vocals, guitar and bass. The record was recorded in the spring of 2007 at Tonesoup Studio in beautiful Avon, CT. There are 17 tracks on the disc all written by yours truly and manufactured beautifully by Oasis Disc.

Also Please check out my new web site. Here can be found a lot more info on me and my musical life going all the way back to my White Flame days in 1975! And... speaking of White Flame the re-release of the lp "American Rudeness" on Munster Records in both CD and Vinyl is occuring right now!Meanwhile enjoy the twangin' sounds of "tight Turns" while I start thinking about the next record. Cheers!

Mark St. John

Creative Songwriting on this Adult Rock/Alt-Country CD
"Tight Turns in the Sunset" by Mark St. John is an adult rock and alt-country crossover album complete with twang and lots of fun. Mark's voice is playful and raw, with a quality that reminds us of Mark Knopfler. The overall sound is "Old School" with clean yet gritty guitar riffs and a down home sound provided in part on some tracks by banjo. The songwriting makes effective use of repeating memorable melodic patterns that sometimes include a Lou Reed-type singing/talking style. You get more bang for your buck on this album with 17 tracks. The title track "Tight Turns in the Sunset" features some creative lyrics and fun "Woo Hoos." "The Girl She Looks So Fine" pays homage to Stevie Wonder's "Roller Coaster". "It Is What It Is" features banjo, dobro and a "Words to Live by" message. Pick this up if you enjoy alt-country or adult rock artists such as Lou Reed.
