Debut album from Memphis pop icon returns on CD. Available on LP again after 40 years and Digitally for the first time. Packaging contains photos and liners from Duren. A Memphis pop icon, Van Duren was not only a contemporary of Big Star, he played with both Chris Bell and Jody Stephens in The Baker Street Regulars. Managed by Andrew Loog Oldham (The Rolling Stones), his 1978 debut album, Are You Serious?, found folks comparing him to artists like Todd Rundgren and Paul McCartney. He recorded a second album, which was shelved, then eventually released without his involvement 20 years later.Four decades later, thanks to the acclaimed documentary Waiting: The Van Duren Story, Are You Serious? and its soundtrack, many discovered Van Duren for the first time, while those who knew him found out about what really happened. Finally, Are You Serious? returns remastered from the original analog tapes on CD, LP, and - for the first time - Digital.13 originals written by Duren (with Jody Stephens being the only co-writer on one track), and packaging featuring new liner notes from Van and previously unseen photos, it's time to get serious about the album that has collectors searching high and low for. Looking and sounding better than ever, it's time for Are You Serious?
