Same Old Feeling
is not flashy or over-produced, it’s an album that will quickly put a smile on your face, as it harkens back to a time before the recording industry wrung out the heart and integrity in favour of payola. Jim Henman (founding member of April Wine) has recorded an album that is completely void of cynicism and is charmingly warm and heartfelt. It’s a slice of summery AM radio from the ’70s and ’80s (think Randy Newman meets Bob Dylan, or Tom Petty) that deserves your immediate attention. It’s one of the best albums of 2012 thus far.
