There's something about sax, soul and sass powered group, Amy Lynn and the Gunshow, that makes one believe they have already long discounted and dismissed the fears many groups develop when prepping a sophomore album –also known as the dreaded “sophomore slump.” Yet, one would be pleasantly surprised to find the Gunshow actually only at their “Freshman first,” so to speak.

The Gunshow's instrumental finesse, combined with Amy Lynn's audacious vocal fortitude back then, made it undeniable that they were only going to improve, given plenty of time and space to create; a comfortably made foresight now seen coming to light with the release of two enticing singles (“Remember (Walking In The Sand)” and “Don't Trip on the Glitter”) and a major cable worthy-music video for the titular track (See below).
