of Phil-fan mail
Sometimes you hear
something and you just know.
The cd is awesome. Itís
really good. He has a lot of talent and should have
no problem finding a label out there. He is going to be huge. I think
he will make it and become real big. Iím a fan now and I am going
to recommend him to everyone.
I listened to a
couple of his songs and they are really good...He sounds great.!

Phil's debut solo CD. Really good,
solid record. Since I spend far more time at my office than I do
anywhere else, I have it on my office playlist.
Allow me to chime in with my
recommendation on this album as well. Very, very good, solid album. Get
yourself a copy. You won't be disappointed!..Great disc
hearing just half of the first song a few minutes ago, I ordered it.
Very neat sound!
I got the CD within a week of ordering it, which is way faster than I
get most things I order! I love it. His voice just draws you in to
the lyrics, and the sound is very upbeat. I love "White Feather",
but I'm telling you- "Goodnight Kiss" is one of the sweetest,
romantic, and sexiest songs I've
heard in ages....
Get the CD folks- you won't be sorry. I'm sure when he's a big
famous star, he'll remember all the little folks and give us front row
seats to his concerts- right Phil?.........Woke up with tunes from this
CD running through my head.....I have a new favorite- "River to
Ocean". It rocks!
(After seeing Phil live)
What a nice time my friends and I had last night hearing Phil and
his current band play. They have a nice rapport and seem very nice guys
as well. I like Phil doing his own stuff best because I like it that
much, but they did some fine U2 I didn't expect.
He sent me his
solo debut CD a couple of months ago! I wasn't expecting it (didn't know
about it), but I had gotten his cd with a band a year or so ago. This
solo cd is WONDERFUL!!!
Congrats Phil!! I
love this cd, really great lyrics and sound. Listening to it now.Can't
pick a fav but "White Feather" is a great start.
I was quite impressed.
Very good stuff! I
would love to see this guy live.
Outstanding. Very good. Can't wait for my copy.
Sounds good. I would
also like to hear him live. Hope he'll be performing in the shore area
Oh wow, I'm so excited for Phil that he's getting some much deserved
radio airplay (and outside of MA, too)!
I've been friends with Phil ever since he bought that extra ticket from
me (at face +TM, of course) for a Boston show on the (Springsteen)
Reunion tour. I can tell you after knowing him all this time, this is
one guy that really appreciates all aspects of music--playing,
listening, going to concerts, etc. He absorbs it all in a laid back,
I've been lucky enough to watch him grow his music career since he
started his last band, Riverside Train....If I can go on for
another minute about Phil...to see him play live is something that
you'll also find reminiscent of Bruce...the three hour (or longer) sets,
a wide repetoire of songs to pull from and play, and just having a lot
of fun up there. It's almost like he's playing for his own benefit as
well as his audience's. You never know what he's going to play next........But
back to the CD....So I was lucky enough to get a copy of Phil's new CD
shortly after it was pressed and packaged, but I had no idea what to
expect before I got it. See, every time I asked him about the cd, how it
was coming along, what was the style, how did it sound, he would never
tell me about it. All I ever heard was "I'm working hard on
it." "I'm off to the studio."..... When I heard it, I was
instantly impressed and so proud of it and of him. Not just because he's
my friend, but because he is my friend and it is really good music, and
I wouldn't have to lie to him about how good it is the way you sometimes
have to lie to your friends when they do something like this. I listened
to it a whole lot the for a few weeks to let the lyrics sink in, the way
you do only with music you really want to absorb. But still...when I
originally got the CD and popped it in for the very first time, I heard
the really beautiful harmonica work at the beginning of the very 1st
track, and I thought back to how much he'd grown in skill .......Success
couldn't happen to a nicer or more humble guy, and I really know his big
breakthrough is just around the corner! I know he really poured his
heart and soul in to the songs, and I'm so glad they're getting time on
the radio. I know I'm gonna freak out the first time I'm driving around
and hear one on WBOS or WHJY. This fellow Bruce fan deserves your good
wishes and support, so I hope everyone can check the songs out or pick
up the cd @ www.philayoub.com
. My favorite song off the CD is "Goodnight Kiss", followed
closely by "White Feather", but it really is *such* a good cd
in it's entirety. Still, "Goodnight Kiss" has a pretty high
play count, according to my ipod.....By the way--Ladies, he's a total
(After he requested a station play Phil)
My pleasure.....I love this cd. I'm glad WXPN-FM
played him. (in 8PM slot)
Also a nice review here:
I'd bet my entire Springsteen collection that this
guy is going places. (Webmaster)
