New York resident Jon Pousette-Dart formed the Pousette-Dart Band in 1973, mining the same musical territory as the Eagles, James Taylor and Little Feat. Manager Don Law discovered them opening for John Hammond on Nantucket, and in 1975 they signed a multi-album deal with Capitol Records, releasing 4 albums from 1976 to 1980. Although the band worked the rock music arena, three of its Capitol albums were cut in Nashville with veteran producer Norbert Putnam. During this time, the Pousette-Dart Band had Billboard chart action with the hit “For Love,” and substantial airplay with “Amnesia,” and “County Line,” selling hundreds of thousands of records and becoming one of the busiest touring groups in the U.S. working with an outrageous array of talent including The Byrds, Bonnie Raitt, Peter Frampton, Yes, the J.Geils Band, Jonathan Edwards, Charlie Daniels Band, Manfred Mann, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Journey, Father Guido Sarducci, Emmylou Harris and Randy Newman... Jon was kind enough to drop by the WSCA studios on Sept. 24, 2010 for some live performance and chat on Stay Tuned with Shawn Henderson.
