The much-anticipated 2008 recording comeback of one of the great AOR song writers... David continues to deliver mighty fine West Coast rock but this time more towards AOR/pop!
The song “Stay With Me Tonight” was written with John Waite (”Missing You”).
“What I’ve Been Missing” is one of my personal favorites of the album.
It´s also quite nice to hear his version of "Before I Go" that was originally released on Starship´s 1985 hit album Knee Deep In The Hoopla, I love his version.
"Stay With Me Tonight" is a great ballad in the style of Chicago.
“Be Gentle With My Heart” was co-written by Randy Goodrum. It’s highlighted by Michael Landau’s beautiful Spanish guitar playing.
This is a sure buy for fans of Blanc Faces, Chicago, Bruce Hornsby and the like, this is a nice, pure slice of radio friendly rock.
The first pressing of Better Late Than Never through Avenue Of Allies comes as a limited Special Edition in a jewel case with an individually numbered additional slipcase and an extensive booklet including lyrics, new liner notes by David Roberts, also all musicians are individually listed for every album track.
A true gem for all AOR and West Coast fans and music collectors.
