Review of “Syd the Karaoke Kid”

Psychedelia Reborn
author: Arthur Athanasios Kyriazis

originally posted at:

Syd the Karaoke Kid is a tremendous tour-de-force, an album which reminds us of the Kinks in their 1966 glory, with “Waterloo Sunset” and “You Really Got me Now” type tunes throughout. Syd also pays homage to Sixties Garage Punk like the 13th Floor Elevators; to the Blues of Chicago; and to LA Psychedelia, like the Doors. What an Album, and what a tremendous accomplishment for Syd Arthur!!!

(About MP3 downloads at CD Baby)

The premiere disc from actor John Kapelos’ alter ego, Syd Arthur co-produced by Wings drummer Denny Seiwell. This wildly eclectic cd reflects Kapelos’ remarkable range of Jazz, Rock, Brazillian, Cajun, Big Band, Folk and 60’s Rock.

this is a superb cd!

Johnny Kapelos is an acclaimed actor and musician, and a former star of the second city improvisational theater of Chicago, as well as one cool right on dude. He also plays a mean bass guitar and can rock the blues all night long. check out
