Once again your rockin’ writer felt the need to resurrect his “Listen Again” series. For those of you just joining us, the “Listen Again” series is a series in which we revisit albums that for one reason or another didn’t receive the attention or acclaim they deserved when they were originally released. Whether it was the recording was ahead of its time, broke away from the artist’s usual style, was poorly publicized or initially misunderstood, the “Listen Again” series urges music fans to listen again. This time we revisit Tuesday’s Rain’s Dream Another Day.
For those readers who may not be up on all their indie artists, Tuesday’s Rain is a California-based band founded by a father-son team. The line-up at the time of the CD’s release consisted of Bob Hargrove (lead vocals and guitar) and Alex Hargrove (percussion). They were assisted by other artists including producer Anthony Valli (guitar, bass, editing and sequencing).
The 14-track album opens on “Ride Away”. This is an effective enough introduction to the act and yet as is often the case, there’s more here than initially meets the ear (so to speak). It only hints at the scope of this multi-generational music collaboration.
