Bill Wyman drops a loving review of the restored You and Your Sister on the New Yorker web site.
Here’s a song from that record performed in 2011.
And here is my four-part rumination on Dale Lawrence’s songwriting originally catalyzed by the release of Wide Awake in 2003.
Part One – Dale and the Gizmos
Part Two – Some personal history
Part Three – Taking a crack at analyzing the songwriting
Part Four – A track-by-track rundown of Wide Awake.
Dale Weighs In – Dale dropped a line after I ran the series with some corrections and annotations.
