Seventh album from 1999, some have called it a "lost classic". Ultra cheap! Twilley don't mind! "Tulsa, Dwight Twilley`s seventh album -- released on a tiny Houston
record label just days before his 48th birthday -- is as likely to make
members of his fan club salivate as it is to keep record company
executives from returning calls. As if no time at all has passed,
Twilley once again presents his multitracked, heavily echoed vocals over
driving rock rhythms and ringing guitars, sounding as urgent as he did
on "I`m on Fire" (his other hit) in 1975. Here and there, his lyrics
seem to refer to his struggles, especially "It`s Hard to Be a Rebel,"
"The Luck" (some people have all of it), and "Miranda," with its chorus
line, "Some things are worth waiting for." The eight-minute "Tulsa,"
Twilley`s tribute to his hometown, is the album`s centerpiece, a
pull-out-the-stops tour de force that gives you everything Twilley can
do in one exhaustive track. He sounds as good as ever, and, as usual,
just from listening to his remarkable music, it`s hard to understand why
he isn`t a million-selling star who made five albums like this between
1986 and 1999, instead of none."-AMG.
