Pete Sears - Watchfire

Pete Sears has played with many artists, including Sam Gopal Dream, Rod Stewart, Long John Baldry Blues Band, Steamhammer, John Cipollina, Original Jefferson Starship, Hot Tuna, Dr. John, and John Lee Hooker.

First released in 1988, Watchfire was Sears' reaction to environmental and human rights   issues of the time. It was also recorded 180 degrees from the strict and obsessive way "Starship" had come to record in the mid 1980's. Sears, who had become steadily at odds with the remaining band members left in 1987 after thirteen years. With his wife, lyricist and writer Jeannette Sears, he plunged back into working with refugees of the civil wars in Central America. He also began playing the blues again with his old friend, Nick Gravenites.

Allmusic.com describes this album best: “This album represents a triumph of integrity for this journeyman rock & roller (Rod Stewart,Stoneground, and most recently Starship). The whole album is thematized around promoting progressive political and ecological agendas and some of the proceeds will be donated to a wide range of groups working in these areas. The music is mainly in a folk-rock vein, with a stellar cast of supporting musicians, including David GrismanJerry Garcia and Mickey Hart, with vocalists Mimi FarinaHolly Near, and Kitty Beethoven helping out his own slightly strained vocals (appealing nonetheless). Andean influences and varied world music styles find their way into this music.”
