Music solid as lead, black and airy like night draped over Birmingham, Alabama. It slowed like a river. It throbbed like a pulsating eye buried deep in a wormy ditch. It tasted sweet as fried weeds trampled by beasts. It tasted wet as wigs of moss anchored between the rocks of that river. A child’s cry rallies a chorus of fear. A mother’s kiss and a father’s hand germinate a seed that would one day grow to be a strapping tree fed by the water of the river. Years pass, fruit ripens, sapling becomes man. No, a preacher, an advocate says he. His bursting fruit drop to the river and are taken far beyond his voice’s reach. Follow the water and listen to this showman’s role in Rock N Roll’s development and how he can help us better understand the complete culture of America. Finally, now this culture is ready for him as he extends it’s vibrations to the rest of the world where others are primed and waiting. He is “The Man-boy”tm, “The Slayer of the Hangers-On”tm, “The Punisher of Shenanigans”tm, “The Veiny Transformer”tm, “The Ivory Godfather”tm. He is DAN SARTAIN! Expand into Dan’s world with a song that grabs your soul, tenderly but firmly. Walk down Broadway with Dan and let him musically describe the “Drama Queens” trippin’ and trickin’ along the way. Take your favorite lady in your arms, turn the lamps down and let Dan Sartain rap in your behalf with his smooth rendition of “Besa Me Mucho”. Hear Dan inside out, clear as Technicolor with a sound bigger than all outdoors. Dan Sartain is smoother than buckskin. Dan Sartain is funkier than ten cans of razor bump solution. Dan Sartain is mellower than Mister A’s Cordon Bleu. Dan Sartain is as righteous as Webster’s definition of truth. Dan Sartain is a man of many moods and many grooves, but more important…. Dan Sartain is the “Ivory Godfather”tm and we needed one for so very long. - John Reis (Rocket from the Cript and Hot Snakes)
