Product Description

2012 solo release from the six-time Grammy Award winner and founding member of The Eagles. After Hours, a collection of classic love songs from the 40's to the present, is his sixth solo album and first since 1995. It is also a total departure taking him in a whole new direction. The two-and-a half year project was developed out of Frey's passion for the songs and sound of such artists as Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole, and Dinah Washington. The exquisite collection of songs include 40's classics such as "Sentimental Reasons" and "My Buddy," and favorites from some of his contemporaries, such as Brian Wilson's "Caroline No" and Randy Newman's "Same Girl" as well as the added spice of the American standard, "Route 66." Frey collaborated with co-producers Richard F.W. Davis and Michael Thompson, both members of The Eagles touring band, to make the record possible.

We had people over last night and everyone just loved the CD. They were really surprised who the singer was.

I am absolutely thrilled with this album! Glenn has such a beautiful voice, which suits these songs perfectly. So smooth - at times tender yet at other times powerful. It proves what a versatile singer he is. He sings each song with such passion. Glenn wanted to record this album for his parents while they are still alive. It truly is a labor of love for him & it shows. "Here's To Life" sends thrills down my spine every time I hear it. "Same Girl" is hauntingly beautiful. I can't pick a favorite as each song has its highlights.

Glenn's hope, which he has stated in many recent interviews, is that of the hordes of Eagles fans from all over, a small portion will be curious & listen to this CD & be introduced to some of the great music of the past. I, for one, can't play this album enough & am anxiously waiting for volume 2! Make sure that you get the deluxe edition. None of the 14 songs should be missed. His parents should be very proud!

Beautifully rendered classics by Glenn. It takes a true and confident artist to deliver this material in such an understated and respectful manner. The songs are featured, and not the overindulgence of the artist, which is very rare in recent years. The arrangements and musicianship and among the best I've heard in many years. I hope Glenn follows this album up with another thoughtful collection of such classic songs.

Glenn should stick to what he does best and this ain't it. Who does he think he is? Rod Stewart?

GLENN FREY'S NEW CAREER AS A CROONER SUITS HIM! May 8 2012
By EMC - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic cd by Eagles front man Glenn Frey. His smooth voice suits these songs to a tee and it sounds like he's been singing them for a long time. Glenn was always my favorite Eagle and his voice just get's better and better. Get the 14 track deluxe version, there isn't a weak track in the bunch. It would be a waste of your time to list favorite tracks because this album is a modern classic from first note to last. If you're a Eagles and Glenn Frey fan you'll love this. Look out Rod Stewart and Paul McCartney, there's a new kid in town!

Glenn Frey Takes A New Direction. May 8 2012
By M. Mariba - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Glenn Frey, original band member of legendary rock band The Eagles, is taking a new direction in this new CD release titled 'After Hours'. It's his 6th solo album : has recorded 14 classic love songs from the 40s to present (cover versions of Brian Wilson, Randy Newman, Tony Bennet, Nat King Cole & Dinah Washington for example). It's a fantastic classical/jazz music presentation of these songs by Glenn Frey. My favourite track is Brian Wilson's "Caroline, No" : wonderful guitar, melody & vocals. Other stand-outs/gems/solid tracks include "For Sentimental Reasons", "My Buddy", "The Good Life", "The Shadow Of Your Smile" (slow-tempo track with a beautiful piano & 'jazzy-sweepy' drums), "It's Too Soon To Know" (great saxophone), "Worried Mind" (countryish-jazzy/classical track), "I Wanna Be Around" (great Gibson guitar work) & "After Hours" (title track with wonderful piano & 'sweepy' drums). Great tracks include "Route 66" (up-tempo bluesy/countryish track), "Here's To Life", "The Look Of Love" (pop-ish track, great duet) & Randy Newman's "Same Girl" (orchestral sound with broadway/cabaret vocals). There is no weak track or CD filler in this CD.

On overall, Glenn Frey is excellent in covering classic love songs (in a jazzy/classical form, his first in his solo projects). It's his first CD release since 1995 : a well deserved 5 star performance & a highly recommended CD listening!

Glenn Frey's After Hours May 9 2012
By William - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I just recieved my CD from Amazon of Glenn's new album After Hours, Wow!!!! This guy can belt out the best of an era gone by. As The Eagles lead Glenn steps away from the country rock we are so used to and does a fantastic job on this one. Give this CD a listen, it's fantastic.

A male version of Diana Krall recordings May 22 2012
By Dennis O. Wasnich - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Very nice! (I know the "anything that isn't head-banging rock is elevator music" crowd gives this a one star but if you buy a CD of 30s 40s and 50s tunes, you shouldn't expect to "rock out" on them!) The music, tunes, performance and everything is very reminicent of Diana Krall albums. So if you think a male singer version of Diana Krall music is "boring" then don't get this. If you think you'd like that, then it is highly recommended! I am very impressed with Glenn's crooning voice; might not be Bing Crosby, but it's very good!

"After Hours" induces a 'peaceful easy feeling' March 14 2013
By Paul Allaer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I recently saw Glenn Frey in concert, under some rather amazing circumstances (more on that later). It was after that show that I sought out this album, which I knew had been released last year but I honestly had not given it any attention.

"After Hours" (11 tracks; 41 min.) finds Frey revisiting standards from the sixties (mostly), and some even older songs added for good measure. The album kicks off with the Tommy Dorsey cover "For Sentimental Reasons" and that songs sets the tone for the entire album. Other great tracks include "Route 66" (Nat King Cole cover), "The Shadow of Your Smile" (Tony Bennett cover), "The Look of Love" (Burt Bacharach-penned Dusty Springfield cover), and of course "Caroline, No" (Brian Wilson-penned Beach Boys cover). And on and on. The last song is the title track, which in fact was originally written for "The Allnighter" album but didn't quite fit on there. What a great rescue of that song, 30 years later! Throughout the album Frey's lead vocals sound surprisingly warm, and his backing band is in fine form.

In all, this album isn't going to shock the world or break new barriers, but instead it induces a 'peaceful easy feeling'. I was recently in Sydney (AUS) for a short business trip, and couldn't believe it when I saw that Glenn Frey was playing the famed Sydney Opera House on the last night of my stay there, so I had to check it out (both the venue and the band). Frey and his glorious backing band kicked off with 3 Eagles classics, and then played the majority of the "After Hours" album tracks, accompanied by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. In between songs, Frey provided some great banter, including how and why he chose these songs for this album. More Eagles tunes and his biggests solo hits rounded out the set. That this took place in the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall was the cherry on the cake. What a fantastic evening of music that was! Meanwhile "After Hours" is an underrated album, and definitely worth checking out.
