Dwight Twilley Band - Sincerely - 1976

What can you say...

Sincerely was the debut album from the Dwight Twilley Band, recorded in 1974 and 1975 and released in 1976 on Shelter Records. The songs on Sincerely come from three distinct recording periods: the band's first Tulsa and Los Angeles sessions for Shelter Records in 1974, which produced both of the first two singles (the top-20 hit "I'm On Fire" and "You Were So Warm"), a recording session produced by Robin Cable in London , and the band's sessions in Tulsa after returning from London.

"I'm on Fire," one of the finest pop singles of the '70s, reached #16 on the charts in 1975 with relatively little promotion, but Shelter had no distribution deal to release anything in 1975, due to the split between Leon Russell and Denny Cordell, Sincerley was not released for over a year. When the album was finally released in 1976, it surprisingly failed.

Long considered a Power Pop Masterpiece, anyone who loves '70s power pop should have the two Dwight Twilley Band albums in their collection.

If you like "Sincerly" buy it here!
