I especially like his versions of "Paranoid" and "Don't Fear the Reaper". The CD also has some Smithereens classics that are extremely enjoyable with Pat's voice and piano. I understand a copy limited vinyl edition was just released. In this CD, he reminds me of a s lounge singer.
While I am all for artists trying new things an essential for growththis particular CD didn't really do it for me. However, in he went out on his own and released Songs and Sounds under his own name.
This is only his second release other than some demo and promo cd's only available at Smithereens showsand well worth the wait. I have had this CD for several months now, because I bought the limited edition 3 cd version directly from the website, but I also bought the single disc version now.
This album is mainly just Pat and a piano with occasional acoustic guitar crooning through different songs. These songs are cover tunes, and not what you'd expect from a "rock star", but as Pat says all over his website "Try it, you'll like it". I grew up with the smithereens through out high school and college, but never did I expect this. I look forward to his new CD coming soon, Revolutions. Simple as that. I would very happily listen to him sing anything.

This is not so much a "Great American Songbook" collection as a selection of much loved songs primarily from the sixties. Unless you have been hiding in the depths of the Amazonian rain forest for years the songs will be familiar to all. With the sensitive piano accompaniment of Jay Rowe this works as an album for late night relaxation or a romantic candlelit dinner. Maybe, when Pat has wound up The Smithereens, he'll start a whole new career as a jazz singer.
A brilliant album from the now sadly deceased singer songwriter from The Smithereens, no dislikes whatsoever bought for my own personal collection. A brilliant double album of stripped down covers and originals showcasing Mr DiNizio,s talents. One person found this helpful. I mean, how much better does it really get to be recording Beatles tunes with The Smithereens and getting paid for it? The pressure was on to make this something unique, an album that Beatles fans and Smithereens fans alike would want to listen to.
But because I am a fan of both bands, I tried to please myself first and followed my instincts in hopes that others Pat DiNizio - DVD & CD Press Kit (CD) feel the same way.
