When you aggregate the many high points from the recorded body of work of John Waite over the last three decades of popular music, his well-known world class singing voice is readily on display, but what emerges is a dedicated, well-read, mature songwriting craftsman who has maintained the highest standards over a lengthy career. Whether with the woulda-coulda-shoulda-been UK band The Babys ( “Isn’t It Time”,”Head First”,”Back on My Feet Again”,”Midnight Rendezvous” ), the late Eighties supergroup Bad English (#1 song “When I See You Smile”,” Straight to Your Heart” ), or solo ( “Change”, “Missing You” #1 again; “Encircled”,”Downtown”, “New York City Girl”,”If You Ever Get Lonely”, which is also a Country hit covered by Love and Theft), John Waite never underestimates the power of a song to tattoo indelibly a memory on your heart forever. – Redbeard

The Babys -- as lead singer/bassist of this seminal English band who are still adored worldwide. The vocal alone on Isn't It Time warrants entry, as the bridge itself is so mountainous, and the top notes hit with the same wild intensity as those in the lower velvet range.
The Voice -- that sparkling rock and roll voice. Huskier for sure, yet crushed and silken as ever, with steadfast nuanced delivery and phrasing. Interpreter of Dylan and others that often outshine the originals.
Rough & Tumble -- off the astonishing album charted way up high on adult contemporary charts. If You Ever Get Lonely has already been covered by the band Love & Theft.
The Songs -- with lyrical vibrancy of melodic and harmonic beauty. A staggering reworking of Missing You with Alison Krauss into soulful country blues, forging a line right down to the very roots of rock and roll.
