A Classic Trip in Modern Times, Sal Annunziato "Own Trip"

If your XM Satellite radio is tuned into the same stations as mine; Classic Vinyl, Deep Tracks, 60's,70's,  and 80's rock, then Sal Annunziato's new CD " Own Trip" will sound immediately familiar to you. Like a fluffy  sweater on the first chilly day of fall, it will warm and comfort you, and most likely make you long to go back in time when musicians actually played instruments, on stage and in the studio. But make no mistake about it, this is no reunion tour. The sound and the lyrics are rooted firmly  in 2016, and if you wonder where the sense of community and togetherness generated by those classic songs disappeared to, you may just find the answers in the lyrics of the eight songs that comprise this record. It's modern themes behind  classic sound.
