JAG (feat Dann Huff) – The Longest Road [Digitally Remastered] (2020) *EXCLUSIVE*
Starting as solo artist in the mid-Eighties, songwriter / vocalist John Allen Garies a.k.a. JAG released his first indie cassette in 1987. Before that, he attended the band WHITEHEART show and somehow made his way onto their tour bus and gave founding member Billy Smiley a copy of the tape. He agreed to produce Garies’ music but asked for a real band. JAG born, and released their first album in 1990.
1990’s “The Longest Road” is JAG’s debut album as a band, recently digitally remastered and reissued after long time out of print.
This is a late Eighties / early Nineties kind of American AOR, smooth and crystal clear. The album starts off strong with a very GIANT-like guitar intro opening the first track and a serious WHITEHEART rhythm.
The influence of both of these bands abound through the album, and all members – including Dann Huff on guitar – perform in one way or another on this melodic collection of songs.
