Steve Forbert’s acclaimed 1988 album, Streets of This Town, will be back in print on CD and 140-gram vinyl for the first time in 28 years; the album has been remixed and remastered. The CD format contains a bonus track. The album is notable as Forbert’s first opportunity to record and release an album after several years of a legal impasse with CBS. Moving to NYC from his native Mississippi, Forbert has burst on the national scene with his 1979 hit “Romeo’s Tune” and put out several more albums with his label, CBS, before reaching an impasse with them. The songs on Streets Of This Town: Revisited were written between 1984 - 1988. Forbert moved from Greenwich Village to Nashville, TN, continuing to write and tour with his band, The Rough Squirrels, and caught the ear of E Street bassist Garry Tallent, who brought the band into his Long Branch, NJ studio to produce the original recording of Streets Of This Town. The songs chronicle the trials and tribulations of four years of a recording-artist purgatory and became Forbert’s first album for Geffen Records. Streets Of This Town got an enthusiastic reception – Rolling Stone called it “the best record he has ever made” in their 4-star review and the Washington Post dubbed it “the most moving and consistent album of his career.”

A portion of all revenue is donated to the Blue Rose Foundation, which provides pre-school scholarships to financially disadvantaged children.
