While we will have to ask you to keep your shirt on when in our shop, this new Numero single-disc anthology is your best heat-beating alternative, taking from his three '70s studio albums (one of which was Japan-only), and featuring many previously-unheard demos, including a handful of collaborations with Glenn Frey and Don Henley. If you're a fan of the likes of Jackson Browne, Boz Skaggs, Hall & Oates and Todd Rundgren but haven't yet heard Ned Doheny, welcome to the world of your new favourite blue-eyed soul songwriter!
"Over the last three decades, Doheny's albums have slid in and out of print on LP and CD, budget jobs without any involvement from the self-described 'avatar for casual vulgarity.' Separate Oceans examines Ned Doheny's first ten years adrift in song, pulling together choice album cuts and 11 previously unissued demos. An 8000-word essay is illustrated by images from the archives of noted rock photographers Henry Diltz, Moshe Brahka, Clive Arrowsmith, and Gary Heery, creating the first ever overview of this unheralded marina rocker." - Numero Group
