Five For Fighting - Message for Albert / by Rollie Agado

In the summer of 1997, I found CD in a discard pile that had some terrible artwork but after giving it a quick spin - it kinda reminded me of Ben Folds Five and the Counting Crows.

Curiously enough it also reminded me a little bit of Eddie Vedder... vocally I mean and that was enough for me to purchase it for shits and giggles and it slowly grew on me.  I actually turned on a few friends to the album after discovering a very tender song at the end of the album titled The Last Great American.

I haven't listened to this CD in a very, very long time - but it brought back a number of great memories.  One of which was driving to Dallas with friends to see Pearl Jam on the Yield/Given to Fly tour in 1998.
