Dean Barton and his band “Barton” have a new album out and it’s
a must listen. Dean Barton, son of the late Alan Barton who was the
lead singer of “Smokie” delivers strong, gritty, Tom Petty
infused vocals throughout the very well produced 12 track set. Each
song unique from the next contains hidden treasures of musical
instruments from violins, organs, harmonicas to bongo drums. Sure to
be one of your favorite tracks on the album, “Sorry” delivers on
every level and has a heavy Traveling Wilbury’s feel. For fans of
“Smokie” several songs will be reminiscent of Alan Barton and you
feel Alan’s influence on his son Dean, Andy Whelan’s guitar solo
on this track is one not to miss.

For those of you
that are unfamiliar with “Barton”, the band was formed over a
decade ago under the name “Spirit of Smokie.” Quickly gaining a
secure underground following they played to wide acclaim throughout
Europe and Russia. “Changes” is their first album of original
material and is recorded as “live” as possible. You’ll love
this album and it will make you wonder why it took them so long to
record their first record.

Sit back, turn it
up, pour a tall one and enjoy “Changes.” This album is a solid 5
out of 5 stars!
