ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Brian Gari, who has produced many oldies reissues on the likes of Neil Sedaka, Paul Petersen, Shelley Fabares, James Darren as well as on his grandfather, Eddie Cantor, has put together a 16 track collection of rarities with this new release. Due to the overwhelming response to the YouTube video of his song "Where Did the Music Go?" performed by former Critter Don Ciccone, Gari has decided to include this previously unreleased track as well as Ciccone's rare 1972 outing (under the name Don Marley) of "Bicycle Ride." Four Season members Ciccone & Lee Shapiro contribute their vocal & instrumental talents to several of the songs on the album. Additionally, Peter Anders (The Videls, The Trade Winds, The Innocence) has returned for a solo performance here. There is also a tribute song to Laura Nyro as well as the original demo of Gari's song recorded by the Tokens "If Our Songs Still Make It (Why Can't We?)" dedicated to the late Ellie Greenwich. There are also two touching songs about cats featured on this album.

A Great Place, Musically
Brian has this unique ability to take me to a great place, musically, and put me in a wonderfully nostalgic mood. Great songs! I love this album (can I still call it an "album"?). Brian, never stop writing!

Impressive!
Brian Gari is truly an impressive songwriter. As a decades-long fan, I have enjoyed all of his music, but HE’S AN OLD CAT, his most recent album, has risen to the top of my list. This eclectic collection showcases his beautifully crafted melodies and insightful lyrics. Brian’s story songs are my favorite, Letter to Norma, The California Dream and My Father’s Cat (Kleenex required on the last one).

Brian Gari is truly an impressive songwriter. As a decades-long fan, I have enjoyed all of his music, but HE'S AN OLD CAT, his most recent album, has risen to the top of my list. This wonderful, eclectic collection showcases his beautifully crafted melodies and insightful lyrics in addition to his versatility. Brian’s story songs are my favorite, Letter to Norma, The California Dream and My Father’s Cat (Kleenex required on the last one).

This Is Where The Music Went
When Brian Gari writes "Where Did The Music Go?" he's really asking about the "pop" vinyl single ("45" to those of us old cats who pre-date the CD). If there were still a pop 45 market, this album would produce a strong handful. In the absence of that market, these songs will all program well on any of the cable pop channels you may listen to at home. The melodies are friendly - Brian's melodies are consistently flowing and well hooked. His lyrics tell stories or paint realistic pictures made all the more personal by his vibrant singing. In other words this album is a great success. Listened to in pieces, it is a listenable collection of pop singles. Listened to as an album, it is sequenced to tell of life, love and romance in all their frustrations, surprises, and pleasures. It will be in my "play pile" for a long time.

Brian Gari's Wonderful New CD
It's been quite a while since Brian Gari's last CD came out and this wonderful new album makes it worth the wait!!! I adore this collection of some new songs as well as some older material. "Laura's Dad" is a very moving story song performed by Elynn Diamond (Who is she? I love her voice!!!) "Am I So Easy to Replace" is one of the catchiest songs you'll ever hear and "My Father's Cat" will break your heart. I am so very happy to have a recording of "Letter To Norma" which I have heard only on a video. It's a brilliant song!!! I also love the original version of "Bicycle Ride" which is truly a lost treasure. That's only a few of the great songs in store for you on this exciting CD. I just got the CD yesterday and have played it several times already. I can't wait for Brian Gari's next CD.

I Think It Is One Of His Best
I've been following Brian since his show "Late Night Comic" and I think "He's An Old Cat" is one of his best CD's! Thank you Brian for writing and performing good music and lyrics for us to listen to. I look forward to your next one.
