JOE VITALE REVIEW OF "SKYLIGHTS" Posted: Sep 1, 2015
The song "Skylights" by Paul J Young is a great piece of real music!! I found myself singing the chorus after only hearing it once! I think you`ll find this song to be such a fresh new creation!! Bravo Paul!!

JOE VITALE -Producer, Songwriter, Drummer Posted: Sep 1, 2015
Joe Vitale is an American musician known as a drummer but also a Flautist, keyboardist and singer. He has played with many top names in music dating back to the 1970s.

His first national break came when Ted Nugent hired him to play drums in The Amboy Dukes in 1971-72. That fall Vitale was invited by former Kent State classmate Joe Walsh to join Barnstorm, a new group being formed by Walsh in Colorado. The group recorded two albums and Vitale and Walsh began a longtime partnership.

Vitale was the original drummer for The Micheal Stanley Band and recorded his first solo album in 1974 "Roller Coaster Weekend" with guitar solos contributed by Joe Walsh, Rick Deringer,and Phil Keaggy. He then joined the Stills-Young Band for the Long May You Run session. Later, Joe would be one of the musicians on the Crosby, Stills & Nash record and tour beginning with the CSN album and continuing to the present day. He has also contributed songs to Crosby, Stills & Nash as well as solo efforts by Stephen Stills and Graham Nash.

Meanwhile, Joe`s longtime partner Walsh became part of The Eagles and Joe became part of The Eagles road band on drums & keyboards, appearing on 1980s "Eagles Live". For Vitales` second solo album "Plantation Harbor" in 1980 , Don Felder also appeared along with Walsh on guitars and Stephen Stills co-wrote a couple of songs. The Walsh/Vitale song "Pretty Maids All In A Row" appear on The Eagles album Hotel California. He continued to appear on Walsh albums in the early 1990s.

Among other artists with whom Vitale has appeared are Dan Fogelberg, Peter Frampton, John Entwistle, Zakk Wylde (Book Of Shadows) and four RAZ albums and an album and DVD "Greatest Hits And Stuff".

GUESTBOOK Posted: Aug 6, 2015
For a while there was a Guestbook page where folks could write their musings, but spammers continued to bombard it and there was little Broadjam could do about it even though they gave it a good try! We had to take it down in the end. Hopefully, one of these days when its figured out how to deal with the spamming, it will be restored.

"These songs need a "love button" ! There is a season for everything! This is yours! Embrace it!"



MICHEAL MARANS REVIEW Posted: Jun 24, 2014
"The composer has an obvious flair for tight, punchy vocal arrangements, and harmonies!"

Micheal Marans---Former Technical Editor of Keyboard Magazine

LARRY THE O Posted: Jun 24, 2014
"lATELY" is an energetic rocker that makes its entrance by bursting out of the speakers into the room then maintains its cruising altitude without break for the duration of the song! Smooth vocals, fine guitar work, and a highly crafted arrangement give "Lately" a sound that is easy to like, but never strays into feeling like generic corporate rock. A powerful toe-tapper make for a sunny day drive in a convertible with the top down!

Larry the O (Oppenheimer)---Editor of Mix magazine & Electronic Musician & others/ Producer/ Recording Engineer/

TED MYERS Posted: Jun 24, 2014

FURTHER (3.0 acoustic) CDBABY PAGE. Posted: Mar 9, 2014
The song--"Further (3.0 acoustic)" CDBaby page is available at--www.cdbaby.com/cd/pauljyoung3

FURTHER (3.0 acoustic) Posted: Feb 28, 2014
The original idea was to take a song & use the same lyrics & melody & create multiple versions of the same song that were unique unto themselves. Three versions were done. Further (2.0 electric) from the Album --Future Greatest Hits!--the acoustic version---Further (3.0 acoustic)--& an orchestral Further (4.0 Orchestral). Not many songs around with--"lead whistling"?? The whistling is live as is most of the recording. I want to really thank everyone at ABBEY ROAD STUDIOS in London, England for all their help & great work! You are simply the best!
