CD $12

James Young is the lead guitarist of Styx. Styx, called by Rolling Stone "the Pearl Jam of the 70's," earned top 5 singles and gold and platinum albums in the 70's, 80's and 90's. In between Styx albums JY has assembled a group of great musicians to play live and cut this stunning, diverse and hard rockin' record. Lead vocals are alternately handled by JY, guitarist Michael Baran, keyboardist Lou DePasqua, and bassist Hank Horton. The group is anchored by vet drummer Ken Harck (best known for Off Broadway).

Writing contributors include all band members, Styx-mate Glen Burtnick, Enuff Z'Nuff's Donnie Vie and Chip Z'Nuff, and Kit Hain. While JY is best known for his rockers, the album also includes production showcases, power pop, gorgeous ballads and the epic "City Of Holy Faith." Fans of both his previous solo work, as well as Styx fans, will welcome this release.
