STEVE FORBERT - STREETS OF THIS TOWNBack in print on 40-gram vinyl after 28 years, Steve Forbert's 1988 album, Streets of This Town, was his first opportunity to record and release an album after several years of a legal impasse with CBS. Moving to NYC from his native Mississippi, Forbert bust on the scene with "Romeo's Tune" in 1979 and put out several more albums with his label, CBS, before reaching an impasse with them. The songs on Streets Of This Town were written during his 1984 to 1988 during this period, giving him years to develop and road test the songs. He moved from Greenwich Village to Nashville, continuing to write and tour with his band, The Rough Squirrels, and caught the ear of E Street bassist Garry Tallent, who brought the band into his Long Branch, NJ studio to produce Streets Of This Town. The songs chronicle the the trials and tribulations of four years of recording-artist purgatory and became Forbert's first album for Geffen Records. Streets Of This Town got an enthusiastic reception - Rolling Stone called it "the best record he has ever made" in their 4-star review and the Washington Post dubbed it "the most moving and consistent album of his career."
