Album Notes
"one of the great undiscovered singers of our time" Donald Kaul, The Des Moines Register, 1974

From reviews for first release, SMOKIN, 1981

"...some compositions that belong in the top drawer of any writer." B. Lichtenbert, The Illinois Entertainer

From a review of Can't Get My Rest, 2002

"Dave Plaehn's harp work shows a lot of range and emotion; the perfect union to his exceptional vocals." Greg Johnson, President, Cascade Blues Assn.

"You don’t have to check your headphones, and you don’t have to make sure you’re listening to the right musician. Unbelievably, Dave Plaehn is not a pseudonym for Todd Rundgren, although their breathy, sweet vocals are almost identical. This Oregon musician really does almost sound more like Rundgren than even Rundgren does these days. A skilled harmonica player, Plaehn has just released a new album, Radio Sister, a relative departure for this blues musician. Plaehn channels a lot more of Rundgren’s poppiest late 70’s-early 80’s material here as well as some classic Hall & Oates for that extra special touch." Cody Conard, The Big Takeover, 18 December 2014

Spectacular Music
This album by Dave Plaehn was a really nice surprise. It combines elements of smooth jazz and soft rock to create a very beautiful soundscape. I especially like track 3, " For You (I'd Undo Anything)". Completely recommended, 5/5.
