Forty-four years late, a post­hu­mous de­but for Dolan

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - KICKOFF -

This Age of Aquarius ar­ti­fact sounded old in 1972, when it was recorded, be­cause the vibe is more ’60s than ’70s. On the other hand, Terry Dolan serves up a sound­track for 2016 when he sings “Rainbow, rainbow, God knows we need a rainbow.”

Dolan’s de­but al­bum is both new and old, be­cause it took 44 years to be re­leased. The Warner Bros. la­bel shelved the project af­ter the mu­sic was in the can, and there it re­mained un­til be­ing res­cued by High Moon Records in a hand­some pack­age that in­cludes a 48-page book­let, the orig­i­nal eight-song al­bum and six out­takes.

“Terry Dolan” de­serves to be heard, mostly be­cause the San Fran­cisco folk rocker as­sem­bled an ex­cel­lent sup­port­ing cast. Half the songs were pro­duced by Rolling Stones pi­anist Nicky Hop­kins, and he pounds away with in­fec­tious en­ergy. Guitarists John Cipol­lina, Greg Dou­glass and Neal Schon all shine at times, and ex­u­ber­ant back­ing vo­cals are pro­vided by the young Pointer Sis­ters.

Dolan went on to decades of suc­cess in the Bay Area with his band Terry & The Pi­rates. He died in 2012.
