Andy Timmons
That Was Then, This Is Now
July 2002
Released: 2002, Favored Nations Entertainment
Rating: 4.0/5
Reviewer: Pete

Comprised of material from his previous two solo releases and 5 new tracks, THAT WAS THEN, THIS IS NOW is the 1st release for Andy Timmons on the Favored Nations label.

For those not familiar with Mr. Timmons, he was the original guitarist for Danger Danger for much of their career. I was never much of a Danger Danger fan (not at all really), but I was pretty much blown away by Andy’s playing on this CD. For the guitar fan, it’s all here: shredding, blues, get the picture.

Opener “Super 70’s” is very reminiscent of Joe Satriani’s “Surfing….”, containing one of those melodies that sits in your head hours after. “I Remember Stevie” is a fitting tribute to the late-great Stevie Ray Vaughn, in which Andy lets loose with that SRV-style guitar that would make your jaw drop, while adding his own signature on the solo. “Electric Gypsy” is very reminiscent of Jimi Hendrix, while “Farmer Sez” changes gears to give us some down-home country-styled pickin’. Closing out the disc is the bonus track “Slips Away” a fitting tribute to former Beatle George Harrison. This track features vocals by Andy and is reminiscent of the Beatles-era with its haunting melody. Timmons plays with a feel that seems to be missing in a lot of today’s releases. Very entreating and refreshing!
