Power Pop! Gary Ritchie - Hum, Sing, ...Repeat (2011) mp3

Gary's "real" instrument would be drums. But, he is a full, fledged Pop guy. Plays most of the instruments & vocals on his albums. A former Chicagoan now living in Austin, Texas. Loves a melody with a Big-Beat behind it. With 4 full length solo cd's behind him, he's loving the freedom of recording what and when he wants. So enjoy!(bandcamp liner notes)

What was originally a download-only digital five-track record (in 2008) has evolved into an eighteen-song download album by Gary Ritchie who effortlessly (re-)creates Merseybeat (power)pop as if the 1960's had never ceased to be.
2001's 'Pop! Radio' was a fantastic offering and 'Hum, Sing...Repeat' confirms Gary Ritchie's talent.(rateyourmusic, reader popphil)

The album was released by Fancy Two/ Tone Records, Wimberley, TX. You can buy it here
You can it also buy as a digital download at Bandcamp.
This is power pop with a lot influences of the sixties and i love it.
