Amnesia Lane (Seeing i Records, PO Box 11643, Marina Del Rey, CA 90295-1643)
By: Gary Pig Gold
The long-limbed legacy of the Southern California Vanity Project is alive and well on this always charming, occasionally brilliant album by Jules Shear/Furys/Bates Motel alumnus Bob Beland. Like the big daddy of the SoCal Vanity hisself, Lindsey Buckingham, Bob single-handedly crafted most every sound you hear herein and, like Lindsey, more than makes up for the odd lyrical or vocal misstep with so much sun-kissed meticulousness that Amnesia Lane could very well lodge in your ear til... til... the NEXT Fleetwood Mac reunion, dammit! The title song alone is well worth the price of admission, believe you me.
