John Oates “Change Of Seasons’ Book review by : Mick Reynolds

"Change of Seasons" by John Oates
(A review) By Mick Reynolds

This is a work written by John and the
Notable writer and journalist Christopher
Epting.

The first 90 pages reads like a colorful
travelogue embracing John’s humble
beginnings on Quince Street in the city
of Philadelphia to New York City, Nashville, Los Angeles and onwards
To Europe.

Change Of Seasons seems less like the
saga of the rock and roll life of two
great artists, but more the evolution of the heart and soul of a genuinely
good man.

John is keenly perceptive with a delightfully aesthetic sense of life.
The creative production of John and
his partner Daryl is truly noteworthy:

13 million albums
6 million singles
18 studio albums
11 live albums
27 compilation albums
And 63 singles

John’s book often reminds me of the travels of
Homer’s Odysseus and his narrative
style is captivating.

We are all so familiar with the success
Of John Oates and Daryl Hall
However, CHANGE OF SEASONS
Is a delightful narrative about the
John Oates we never had the opportunity to really know until now.

The songs of John Oates and Daryl Hall
speak of life's dramatic adventures and
even more dramatic resolutions that
eventually drift from the cacophony of
loud concert halls to the stillness of mountain passes.

Johns reflections are on a life both
unexpected and ultimately wonderful!
Bravo!
