"This" is an all-new collection of high-fidelity recordings by New York native, Vic Ruggiero, (The Slackers) produced and recorded by Bruce Witkin and Ryan Dorn (the White Buffalo, Babybird) for the Unison Music Group. Vic's authentic, candid, clever and poignant street-smart commentary on life, love, loss and lust is delivered via his thuggish croon, in this special album of original material. With over two decades of non-stop touring as the Slackers' front man, keyboardist and Music Director, Vic has also traveled the globe solo, as an (Americana/Folk) artist. "THIS" is a thoughtful array of fan favorites, now presented for the first time in high fidelity audio. Long-time fans, and folks just now discovering Vic will be enamored by this genuine, American music; featuring some of Vic's most beloved compositions. Honest and beatnik cool.
