Standouts from his solo albums include his dreamy, wistful cover of the Beach Boys' “Disney Girls,” his close-harmony duet with James Taylor on the Everly Brothers' “Crying in the Rain,” his heartfelt reading of Jimmy Webb's “All I Know” (accompanied by the Oklahoman on piano), and the previously unreleased smoky love ballad “Lena,” featuring a couple of elegantly heated electric guitar solo passages from Dean Parks.

This is one for turning the lights down low and dancing slow, while Art the angel sings.
