About This Project

Monsters of Lite Rock is an idea that originated more t han 20 years ago, as my three college roommates and I each discovered that we had grown up listening to (and loving) these AM radio classics of the late '70s and early '80s.

As someone who has been fascinated with this music for decades now, I had the idea to reach out to some of my favorite musicians of today to see if they might be interested in recording new versions of these old classics. There was such an outpouring of affection and interest from these artists that Drink A Toast To Innocence: A Tribute To Lite Rock was born. 28 songs, reimagined and reinterpreted for today's music fans.

So whether you love the original versions and you're curious about how the new recordings might sound, or you're a fan of the current artists, and you want to hear their latest tracks, Drink A Toast To Innocence: A Tribute To Lite Rock is for you.

The latest batch of packages I sent out had copies of the vinyl version of Drink A Toast To Innocence. Included in the record is a card that allows you to digitally download the music. Click the download link below to reedeem your download card.

I hope everyone is enjoying the music (and any other stuff you may have gotten in your rewards packages)! As always, I have my two requests. First, I hope you'll spread the word about the record, on Facebook, on Twitter, or anywhere else you might be able to let folks know. You can let people know that they can pick up the record at iTunes, Bandcamp, Amazon or CD Baby. And second, keep emailing me those pictures of you with your records and CDs! I'm assembling my virtual scrapbook, and I'm going to post it here and at the Monsters of Lite Rock page as well. Thanks, everyone!

The A.V. Club

"Drink A Toast To Innocence: A Tribute To Lite Rock turned out to be even more of a slam dunk than I’d imagined, thanks to a track listing featuring some of my favorite artists—including Kyle Vincent, Mike Viola, Linus Of Hollywood, Willie Wisely, and Seth Swirsky—tackling some of the smoothest, silkiest songs of the ’70s, plus a few token tracks from the ’80s."

"I'm glad to say that Drink A Toast To Innocence: A Tribute To Lite Rock works on all levels and is pure f***ing genius! From song selection and artists right down to the actual recordings, DATTI is one of the few tribute albums that understands the concept behind 'tribute' and executes it perfectly."

Pop Geek Heaven (Bloody Red Baron)

"Charming and irresistible, this hefty compilation resurrects often banal, sometimes heinous earworms of the seventies and eighties, recasting them in a power pop vein. Four Stars."
