2007 digitally remastered two-fer featuring a double dose of Dan! This CD contains Fogelberg's third and fourth albums for Epic Records and both albums hit the US Top 30 charts. Captured Angel appeared in 1975 and is a fan favorite. Apart from some percussion, 1977's Nether Lands is totally Fogelbeg on all instruments. The CD comes housed in a slipcase with extensive new notes. BGO.
The Innocent Age is the seventh album by American singer/songwriter Dan Fogelberg, released in 1981 (see 1981 in music). It was also one of his most successful albums; three of his four Top 10 singles on the Billboard pop chart ("Hard to Say" (#7), "Same Old Lang Syne" (#9), and "Leader of the Band" (#9)) were from this album, as well as another Top 20 single in "Run for the Roses" (#18). All four also reached the Top 10 on the Billboard adult contemporary chart, with "Leader of the Band" reaching Number 1 on that chart. "The Innocent Age" drew its inspiration from Thomas Wolfe's major novel Of Time and the River. Fogelberg captured on this album Wolfe's protagonist's search for meaning, for self, and the inexorable passage of time.
This double-CD release from Britain's Beat Goes On label should interest anyone who's even slightly serious in appreciating Dan Fogelberg's music. For starters, in the absence of any upgrades since the late '80s in the sound of Sony Music's domestic Fogelberg CDs, the remastering of Souvenirs is more than a little welcome – the man's whole early catalog ought to have been remastered long before 2006, based on the crisp results here and the fresh edge it adds to music that is otherwise extremely familiar. And then there's the contents of the first disc, containing Fogelberg's debut Home Free album, which was not a success at the time of its release. Fogelberg and original producer Norbert Putnam remixed the original multi-track tapes from Home Free when it was time to do the CD release, and issued what was, in effect, a somewhat different album, with instruments shifted around in the mix and alterations in the framing and conceptions of various songs.
Pete Huttlinger is back! He has been flooded with requests for guitar instruction on more of Dan Fogelberg’s popular hits, and he has obliged with a new DVD that will satisfy all students and fans of these timeless songs.
Dan Fogelberg's iconic songs, soaring vocals and rich guitar arrangements gained him millions of avid fans and secured him a place in the pantheon of American popular music. His acoustic-based songs drew from a variety of sources: rock, folk, bluegrass and the California sounds of the'70s and '80s.
Although it is no secret that Emmylou Harris is one of the modern era's most prolific guest vocalists, it's only when you see her appearances laid out one after the other that you realize just how many other performers have called upon her over the years – a gamut that runs from Linda Ronstadt to Little Feat, from Bob Dylan to Bonnie Raitt.
