Debut Solo LP

Phil Seymour is best remembered as one half of the creative force behind the Dwight Twilley Band, CO-writing with Dwight Twilley some of the finest pop songs of the era, including the classic "I'm On Fire." After two albums (1976's Sincerely and 1978's Twilley Don't Mind), Seymour left to pursue a solo career. While waiting for a recording deal, he began recording solo sessions, as well as contributing session work for Tom Petty, 20/20 and Moon Martin (ex-Southwind. See eBay #1499001271). In 1980, he signed to Boardwalk Records after selling label chief Neil Bogart on a batch of demos recorded with fellow Tulsa natives 20/20. This, his self-titled debut LP, was well received and the single "Precious To Me" made it to number 22 on the pop charts. This elusive LP has become highly revered in power-pop circles as one of the landmark albums of the era.

Guest musicians include Steve Allen- guitar; David Crockett- drums (no, not that Steve Allen & Davie Crockett); Carla Olson (Textones); Larry Byrom; Wayne Cook; Ron Flynt; Emory Gordy; Duane Hitchings; Roger Linn; & Bill Pitcock.
