Charlie Gracie Angel On My Shoulder

Snow Day Sale!!!!!

""When we were starting out with The Beatles, the music coming over from America was magical to us---and one of the artists who epitomized this magic was Charlie Gracie."" ---Sir Paul McCartney

 ""Charlie Gracie was FIRST in Rock & Roll---and the FIRST Rock & Roller to come out of Philadelphia! He started it and made it possible for all the rest of us!"" ---Chubby Checker

 ""His concerts in the late '50s in Manchester, England helped me to become who I am today."" ---Graham Nash

 ""His guitar sound was brilliant!"" ---George Harrison

This is the third album that Charlie Gracie and producer Quentin Jones have collaborated on and like the previous two this one is packed with great music. This time Gracie showcases his rock and roll roots, his rockabilly heritage, and his country gospel background.  There are new rockers like “Man and Wife” and bonus tracks “I’m All Right”,” Lover Boy”, and a fantastic duet with Graham Nash, “A Little Too Soon To Tell” a few updates of rockers like Gracie’s own “Cool Baby” now recorded with a more traditional rockabilly feel, and some fantastic country gospel tunes that would make anyone’s feet tap and hands clap! This is the real deal and recorded by real musicians, playing real instruments, in a real studio. Show stoppers include the Dee Dee Sharp and Gracie duet “Just a Closer Walk” and new originals penned by Gracie and the Lanark songwriting staff!
