ROBBIE DUPREE – Live All Night Long (2013)

ROBBIE DUPREE - Live All Night Long (2013) mp3 download


Brooklyn-native ROBBIE DUPREE is some kind of a West Coast AOR living legend, one of the few from the very first wave of the genre at the beginning of ’80s still active.

At the end of the seventies Dupree moved to the other US coast where the musical trend better fitted his style, and he become one of the preferred songwriters of the L.A. scene.

At the beginning of the ’80s, apart from his contributions to big acts, Robbie Dupree delighted us as solo artist with two – at this point – classic West Coast albums; his self titled debut and ‘Street Corner Heroes’, even spawning a top 10 Hit: “Steal Away”.

Dupree not only never stopped writing for other artists and releasing solo albums during the eighties, nineties and the past decade, he has also been really active as live performer (Robbie was part of the All Star Rock Concert Tour a couple of years ago).

In 2010, Dupree signed with Spectra Records for a series of new albums to come and a reissue of his catalogue.

Originally released in ’98, “Live All Night Long” is available now remastered and in a redux form, including all his best songs.

This live record captures a fantastic vibe playing to a sold out crowd as Dupree takes the stage to play all his hits to date backed by an all star band including Brian Ray (Paul McCartney Band), Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel, King Crimson) along with his long-time rhythm section of Peter Bunetta & Rick Chudacoff – both players and producers in Dupree’s celebrated first albums.

You should be noticed this is NOT a typical ‘live’ album.

This recording sounds pristine from every corner, these are just those golden West Coast AOR songs played smoothly with all the feeling of a L.A. recording session.

So if you don’t like live albums, put “Live All Night Long” outside that preconception.

We have great versions of classics like “Hot Rod Hearts” (co-written with AOR guru Bill LaBounty), “Lonely Runner” and of course the hit “Steal Away”, all from the first album.

From his second ’81 LP we find the delicious pure AOR of “Brooklyn Girls” (penned by LaBounty), the velvety “Free Fallin”, “Saturday Night” and “All Night Long”, alongside with other songs from Robbie’s different albums.

A must for West Coast AOR lovers.
