ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Remember when music used to make you feel good? Well-written memorable songs you could really get into? Tunes that stuck in your mind? Whatever happened to music like that?

Robert Kramers' latest release, "Legacy of Love", is a return to that philosophy, offering a collection of catchy, radio friendly well-written rock, r&b, blues and acoustic tunes that already has critics saying "real music is back". Often compared to such notables as Sting, Clapton, Pink Floyd and Yes, Kramers' latest offering takes the listener above and beyond comparisons, and sets its' own watermark.

Hard-driving, powerful, and sensitive all at the same time, Kramer teams up with some formidable musicians on this latest project, including guitarists extrodinaire Jimmy Ryan & Rich Poston, and also, stunning premiere performances by legendary former vocalist/musician for Frank Zappa & The Mothers Of Invention, Napoleon Murphy Brock, and international female R & B singing sensation Naseem, who bring a special energy and mood to the music.

From hard-edged rockers that bring to mind such artists as Springsteen, Moody Blues, and The Police, to atmospheric blues, up-tempo progressive rock/pop, or passionate R&B, every song tells a personal story that explores what we feel, who we are, and where we are headed. As a quote from the title song says, "what we leave behind is a Legacy of Love..."

Remember how REAL MUSIC used to make you feel?? Wouldn't you like to feel that way again?

Good Mix Of Rock, Blues and R&B!
New indie musician/ recording artist Robert Kramer has been on the midwest indie music scene for quite awhile, and thats good news for music fans. He's got 3 albums out presently, and a new one that just hit the streets (so to speak) called "Legacy Of Love". It's got a mixture of rock, blues and r&b that shows a good deal of scope.

Plus, in a surprising twist of events, he was assisted on this new disc by former Frank Zappa & The Mothers legendary lead vocalist Napoleon Murphy Brock (think "Roxy & Elsewhere" for Zappa fans)., but brings a sophistication to the vocal performances on two tracks, "Place In My Heart" & "Water Into Wine" that puts this album a notch above your standard run of the mill "local indie release". For one thing, it doesnt SOUND like your typical "indie band" , but brings to mind a pro level solo artist release in the vein of a cross between Springsteen and adult contemporary Sting, post-Police.

Speaking of Police, there's a track on the album titled "Smash the Mirror" that could be a Police outtake of a lost song. Rough-edged in it's delivery, but with a driving energy AND an understanding of how to write a decent pop song. (which many indie-wanna-bes have seem to left out of the equation as of late) Matter of fact..most of the material on this new disc is well-constructed, recorded and catchy. One wea! k spot m ight be "Wished You Could Hear This Song" an acoustic ballad that might pass for a decent early moodie blues tune, but needs an acoustic 12-string and maybe a remix in parts. But why nit-pick..Killer guitar and vocal work combined with above average songwriting make this album a must-have.

Personal favorite tracks: "Knockaround", "Water Into Wine" "Place In My Heart"

"..an impressive album.."
"Legacy Of Love" is an impressive album. Straight-forward rock ballads with nice guitar work and excellent vocals.
The reason for it's appearance in the UM files is that none other then Napoleon Murphy Brock sings (co-)lead on 'Place In My Heart' and that he added backing vocals and flute to 'Water Into Wine', the latter one also featuring the beautiful voice of Naseem.

I would have liked to have heard a bit more of Napoleon's singing, but still, an impressive album.
