ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The website for the album, THEN AND NOW, is PietroRock.com. The web site includes audio excerpts from each track, epigraphs and lyrics for all 22 songs, brief stories behind the making of each song, photos and bios. The 2-disc album includes a 16-page booklet containing epigraphs and lyrics for all 22 songs plus photos. THEN AND NOW is a collection of songs written between 1970 and 2008. The album's first song, All I Want, is a father-son collaboration: music by Anthony Pietro and words by his dad, Richard Pietro. All other songs (words and music) were composed by Richard Pietro. The arrangements and instrumentation were the result of a collaborative effort between Richard Pietro (vocals, keyboard, and synthesizer), Anthony Pietro (electric and acoustic guitars and mandolin), John Gregg (drums and percussion), Keith McKelley (saxophone), and Jon Guggenheim (studio engineer). Many, many thanks to all those who contributed their art, craft, insight, and encouragement to this effort. And a special thanks to Anthony, without whom, this project would never have come out of the basement and into the lights of C-Town Sound.

It's got soul
It's REALLY wonderful music - and for that to happen - lyrics must engage the mind, and the instruments magnify, and add layers of great working togetherness. There are a few songs that I am in love with : 1!,10!, 13, 15!!, 17,21. BRAVO!

Vicki Bracanovic

Very Cool
It's got a "Beatles" feel to it!! Love the sax... Very nice... I enjoyed reading what inspired each song...

Jo-Anne

Great tunes
Enjoyed listening to this, you can tell is written and performed by musicians with great thought in the music and lyrics. Particularly enjoyed the sax solos.

Helen Green

Great Listen from a local Cleveland artists
This is an awesome CD from local artists in Cleveland, Ohio. Fresh, quarky, whimsical lyrics with a blend of rock,blues, and jazz instrumentals. The saxaphone was unforgettable. With its rich rock and roll history; this CD illustrates the plethora of local talent living in Cleveland!
