C'mon DJ

Producer (group): Sympathy for the Record Industry

Mr. Airplane Man’s previous two CDs devoted way too much effort to half-baked bluesiness (perhaps to justify a band name inspired by a Howlin’ Wolf song).

Best of all, the ballads summon days-gone-by innocence without sounding overly nostalgic.
