Laurence Juber SUNNY SONG OF THE DAY from his CD Fingerboard Road

Two time Grammy award winning artist, Laurence Juber, forged his musical legend a long time ago as Paul McCartney's lead guitarist for Wings and as a groundbreaking solo acoustic guitarist and now, he adds a few more chapters with a new album and book.  March 13, 2015

Laurence Juber Releases a New Album, FINGERBOARD ROAD, and a New Book

3:35 - 3:55 ON THIS SAMPLER


" ‘I Only Want To Be With You’ was big hit for Dusty Springfield in 1964. It represents the sound of the British pop music that paralleled The Beatles’ career, as does Bobby Hebb’s ‘Sunny’, on the US side of the pond.

A trip to Savannah, Georgia, inspired the arrangement of 'Georgia On My Mind.' 'Go Now' was essentially Juber's audition piece for Wings, when he played it with McCartney cohort Denny Laine on a UK TV show in 1977. 'Won't Get Fooled Again' represents a particular era of late '60's/early '70s British rock. Laurence debuted this version with Pete Townshend in the audience. 'Without You' written by the Badfinger team of Pete Ham and Tom Evans and famously covered by Harry Nilsson, is a quintessential melodic rock pop song, here given an emotional and dynamic solo performance. 'I Won't Last A Day Without You' is homage of the immense songwriting talent of Paul Williams, with whom Laurence has often collaborated over the years. Otis Redding's '(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay,' Dusty Springfield's 'I Only Want To Be With You' and Bobby Hebb's 'Sunny' round out the collection. There is also a bonus live track of LJ's composition 'Love At First Sight' that brings the album to a romantic conclusion.

Juber's heralded coffee table 'photo memoir' Guitar With Wings garnered impressive accolades when first released in 2014. Chris Carter, Host of "Breakfast with The Beatles" proclaimed, "A super pictorial account of LJ's musical journey. Master Juber's well-written words and never-before-seen photos nearly match his unbelievable talents as one of the worlds' most respected and gifted guitar players. A wonderful read."
Fingerboard Road is the first of Juber's albums to feature his new signature C.F. Martin guitar strings, LJ's Choice, which impart a warm and focused sound to the recording. Compared with the near erotic appeal of the instruments themselves, guitar strings are hardly a 'sexy' subject but they represent the tactile connection between the musician, the instrument and the tone of the performance.
