Top 10 Reasons To Buy Taylor Hick's New Album "Early Works"!


Well folks, the big day is just hours away! The first new Taylor Hicks album in almost 2 years! Okay, maybe the songs aren't new, but it's a new release and that is always an exciting time for Taylor's fans! This new compilation will contain a complete remastering of 12 of the 14 songs that appeared on his pre-Idol independent releases, "Under The Radar" and "In Your Time". Two songs that appeared on those albums that didn't make it to this new compilation, "On Broadway" and "Hell Of A Day" will be sorely missed, but I guess time restraints made it impossible to include. I'm thrilled, however, that my 3 favorites made it: the beautiful acoustic gem "The Fall", the heart-wrenching bluesy "Somehow" and the always funky 1968 Archie Bell ditty "Tighten Up".

If you are still having conflicting emotions about buying this CD because you already have the songs on the 2 prior albums, let me give you my Top 10 reasons why you should buy it:

10. Head to head, any song on this compilaton album is better than any song on Daughtry's album. Yes, it's true!
9. Target stores RAWK and it's only $9.98 and that's a BIG bargain anywhere these days.
8. It's the first release on Taylor's own record label: Modern Whomp Records.
7. It's the first widely released Tayor Hicks CD without any input or influence from Clive Davis or the American Idol conglomerate.
6. Possible new linear notes and new pictures.
5. You will have all of Taylor's original songs conveniently on one CD to play in your house and car.
4. You will be supporting REAL MUSIC - not that crappy Top 40 noise that passes as music these days.
3. You will be helping Taylor get back on the road with THE band!
2. It's re-mastered and the sound will be much better than the originals.

and the #1 reason............

1. IT'S FUCKING GREAT MUSIC!!!!!

BE THERE OR BE SQUARE!!!!
(and please Daughtry fans, don't come here whining about my #10 cuz if you say anything unpleasant about Taylor or his fans, I'll zap you faster than you can say Soul Patrol!! :)

Now that's what I'm talking about! #1 is the best reason. :) I also am looking forward to seeing the words Modern Whomp Records somewhere on the CD case.

PEOPLE GET READY. Here's the LOWDOWN, MY FRIEND. Tomorrow, we need to be TAKING IT TO THE STREETS and be in an ALABAMA STATE OF MIND.

IN YOUR TIME, have you ever been more excited a new CD release? WHAT I'D SAY is probably not, except for maybe the release of TAYLOR HICKS, on 12/06/06!

I know that tomorrow, 8/12/08, will be a HELL OF DAY. (in a good way). I'm GONNA MOVE through THE MAZE of customers to buy EARLY WORKS, at Target,
THE RIGHT PLACE to buy most everything. It's quite THE DEAL at ONLY $9.98. That's really SOMETHING!

HEAVEN KNOWS how many copies I'll end up buying. Hopefully, I won't get myself in TROUBLE.
I'll just have to TIGHTEN UP on my other expenses SOMEHOW.

COMPARED TO WHAT else is being release these days, this is a smart purchase, Don't let anyone give you THE RUNAROUND! In all the PLACES I'VE BEEN musically, I know I'm HAPPIER WITH HIM.

So GIVE ME TONIGHT to tell you to TAKE THE LONG WAY HOME after buying this SOUL THING release.
When you get home, you can DANCE TO THE MUSIC as long as you'd like, because we all know there AIN'T NO SUNSHINE without Taylor Hicks in our lives.

And good for us, we know in THE FALL that we'll have more coming from our man from BIRMINGHAM!

I just finished listening to "EARLY WORKS",it is great to have his early stuff on one CD and i think the sound quality is better. Plus it is a simple and inexpensive way to support Taylor and his music.
