'The Early Years' takes the listener to the Sands hotel in Las Vegas. The year could be 1958 or 2008, so timeless is the music. The first song, 'Mood Swing', sounds like a Beck scored Matt Helman film, with you in the starring role a la Dean Martin. You jump in your convertible and head down the Strip. 'Ipso Facto' plays on the radio, lights are flashing, there are people everywhere and then She appears. As she crosses in front of your car you catch her eye and wink. She returns a smile. Ah, Vegas. It's all 'About Sex' and you are the International Man of Mystery.
