ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Featuring guest appearances by Paul McCartney and Stewart Copeland, Undressing Underwater shines the spotlight on the guitarist/singer/songwriter career of a consummate musician, who continues to break ground while working with some of the best of his peers.

Undressing Underwater showcases Anderson's musical background, which spins through Oscar-nominated and Grammy-winning work, from Paul McCartney, Perry Farrell and the Wallflowers, to Elton John, Courtney Love, The New Radicals and Sinead O'Connor. The ten songs on Undressing Underwater pair Anderson's vocal range with showcase of his talents, from rock guitar to hammered dulcimer and pedal steel.

Hurt Myself is the lead track, which is also the culmination of a childhood dream of playing with the Beatles, only in this case it's Paul McCartney playing on Rusty's own album, plus the rest of McCartney's touring band and producer David Kahne.

Anderson's background also includes a stint with Stewart Copeland and Stanley Clarke's Animal Logic, and over the years he and Stewart have continued working together. The former Police drummer returns the favor on rocker Catbox Beach.

"My house is filled with billions of cassettes, little scraps of paper and journals. Somehow these bits bonded together and became the CD," said Anderson. "Most of the recordings were done in between touring with Paul. In fact, the Hurt Myself session was booked in lightning speed, because after Paul said he wanted to record something, I realized we only had three days in LA before flying to Mexico City to play shows. The songs are mostly about facing one's demons and attempting to bottle them."

Undressing Underwater was recorded at Oxide Studios in Southern California, plus Sunset Sound and Henson Studios, and was self-produced by Anderson, along with David Kahne, Mudrock and Parthenon Huxley.

Great !
Anderson's first release has received rave reviews and features an assortment of polished modern rock songs. The varied instrumentation and different players give the CD depth and diversity. Undressing Underwater is great from start to finish with impeccable production and a variety of tunes and tones. 'Hurt Myself' is the strong opening track with Paul McCartney singing and on bass. It features great vocal blends and first-class instrumentation. 'Ol Sparky' has lots of energy including sizzling guitar leads and a catchy vocal groove. 'Devils Spaceship' is another stellar track with a dark edgy feel and souring instrumentation. The multi-talented Rusty Anderson excels on his progressive solo project!

Oh Yeah Rusty, This ROCKS!!!
Alright, I have been waiting to hear this CD! It ROCKS, GREAT SONGS RUSTY, Awesome!!!! I wanted to buy it back when it came out, especially when I saw Rusty`s Band at the Fullerton Museum Show to kick off a exhibit of People who were Famous from the area. I didn't buy it, Man do I regret that! These song are all Very Good, I haven't heard a CD this GREAT in a Long Time, I Like Every Song!!! Being a Musician I tend to listen to my old stuff because the new songs are so simple and they all sound the same!!! That's rare for me to like even 2 or 3 songs on a CD, So CONGRATS Rusty for Your First CD to be THAT GREAT, Your Awesome!!!! I always said we should have put you in our Band when Tom never showed up, You were Always there to Play and Your Were a Fantastic Guitar player in 1970, GREAT JOB RUSTY, Keep them commin!!! I like your new Release, Effortless, That's A DEFINATE Number ONE HIT !!!! Take care & God bless, Mason.

Great!
Rusty Anderson was a main force at the last Paul McCartney world tour, so this CD, his first one solo, was not a surprise. Good guitar, good songs! I think it's the kind of music we all need in those terrible days...

Better than the best I expected!
This CD was amazing, I expected it to be very good from the previews, but it was BEYOND very good, it was really really great. I recommend it!

What rock is all about. Fabulous album
After having seen Rusty Anderson 3 times with McCartney in Southern California in 2002 i was curious to hear him on his own. I bought the cd in July and saw him with his band the same night. This album rocks from start to finish with beautiful melodies, great lyrics, great musicianship and totally awesome guitar playing. The songs get better every time i hear them. From the Lennonesque vocal in Coming Down to Earth to the Beach Boys tinged harmonies in Everybody Deserves an A in This Country to the rocking surf sound of Catbox Beach for me it doesn't get any better than this.

The best CD I have bough this year, and it's December!
I have never reviewed a CD on any website before (and I’m not really sure how to go about it) but this one is exceptional.
I first came across Rusty Anderson when I saw him touring with Paul McCartney earlier this year. His guitar playing skills impressed me so much that I bought this CD the minute it was released, curious to hear Anderson’s own music. And I have to say, I was very impressed!
This CD has 10 absolutely fantastic tracks on it, each and every one of them is a mini masterpiece in my opinion. Anderson’s talents both as a musician and as a songwriter clearly shine through, and his voice has a wonderful clarity to it, something which (I think) is a bit rare these days. Each track is filled with hooks and melodies that get stuck in your brain and take up residence there. And that’s before you even listen to what the man is saying. His lyrics are pure brilliance, they are intense and thought provoking, melancholic in places, sometimes cryptic - but they somehow ring true. One gets the impression that Rusty Anderson is writing about the things that really matter to him.
I am rating this CD with 5 very large shiny red stars, and I would highly recommend it to any music fan.
