5.0 out of 5 stars A Mature and Satisfying project 26 Sep 2006
By J. Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Having been a longtime fan of Hall and Oates, I had often wondered why John Oates did not get more credit, not only for his songwriting and impassioned vocals but for his wonderful arranging skills, which are so evident on Hall and Oates best work. As wonderful as Daryl's voice is as he soars over their peerless pop/soul, John gave us the edge and often the more straightahead lyricism.

This collection of songs previously released as "Phunk Shui" is a mature and satisfying work, balancing social commentary with adroit observation, as in "All Good People" and "Love in a dangerous time". He tackles relationships and family in "Unspoken" and "Little angel" and hails old school in the 'title' track. "It girl" is featured on the DVD side as a concept video featuring the iconic Paris Hilton, ostensibly being herself - which is strange as the song is mildly critical of her socialite lifestyle. She must have had a blonde moment! Other standout tracks are "Color of Love" and an interesting remake of Jimi Hendrix's "Electric Ladyland' done with a philly twist.

The DVD concert is well performed and though visually simple, is musically and emotionally satisfying. As a companion piece to the audio it adds background to the project without being distracting. Even the telemark skiing clip is fun because it is another glimpse of the man John Oates has grown into, as he steps from behind Daryl Hall's shadow, into a kinder, gentler, limelight. The price too is another great reason to pick up this gem - an album that deepens with each listen.

3.0 out of 5 stars John Oates Solo Dual Disc 26 Aug 2006
By TomAzon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I picked-up this John Oates Dual Disc called "Solo - The Album, The Concert" from Amazon. It's a combination of his 2002 "Phunk Shui" album (which includes the bonus tracks "Mona Lisa's Eyes", "Time Will Tell" and a live version of "People Get Ready").

The DVD side of the disc contains his 2004 "Live at The Historic Wheeler Opera House" show. I would suggest buying that separately since it includes a CD with the live show and some extra songs not on the DVD, plus the price is right. See my reviews on those also.
5.0 out of 5 stars John Oates Is Finally Recognised For His Hard Work 12 April 2012
By Francisco Garcia - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Frankly, it's about time that John Oates got the recognition that he so richly deserves. In regards to their 40 year plus partnership, Daryl Hall took all of the credit and got to do all the great tracks and John Oates was lucky to get whatever tracks he could get to do on every album they had released within the last 40 years or so. In short, Hall got the meaty tracks and he gave Oates the scraps..or at least that's the impression I got from Daryl Hall. But the songs in this finely crafted album by John Oates are superb and show that John Oates is every bit as talented and worthy of recognition and admiration as Daryl Hall. I wish John Oates many more years of singing and songwriting success.
