Actually, coming from the northeastern United States, it took the two musicians to sunny Los Angeles, where the band The Contents founded and until its dissolution very diligent played concerts and recordings also plates. Over time, they learned, among others, Joey Molland (former Badfinger, Ex- Natural Gas) and Joe Vitale
(including ex Joe Walsh, Crosby, Stills & Nash, The Eagles) know, what for a long time but rather to private friendships rather than to make music together led.

The disc will be opened very strongly can with the rocker "$ 1.50 For Your Love", the losrockt really heartwarming and also rely on a strong brass section. For the very diversified Pop shares the aforementioned influences of care Fab Four, which can logically close for a very melodic and catchy hook lines squinting at orientation. Many of the sixteen tracks actually took a strong Sixties Touch.
The pieces come all very likeable and also go through into the ear, yet leaves the listener here and there (especially in the texts) not shiver to verhehlende simplicity of Mucke something. In order for the example Beatles to stay, imagine the places to mediocrity almost unsurpassable Lyrics of solo albums of Ringo Starr in front and you've got the quintessential Raz tape recorded.
