Singer/songwriter Keith Sykes first surfaced in 1969 with a self-titled LP on Vanguard, followed a year later by 1 2 3; out of the limelight throughout much of the early 1970s, he resurfaced later in the decade playing guitar in Jimmy Buffett's touring band, also issuing the solo LP The Way That I Feel in 1977. I'm Not Strange, I'm Just Like You followed in 1980, but after releasing It Don't Hurt to Flirt two years later, Sykes spent the next several years best known as a composer, authoring songs for Buffett, John Prine, the Judds, and others. Signing to Prine's Oh Boy! label in 1992, he released It's About Time, his first solo album in close to a decade; Advanced Medication for the Blues followed in 1998. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
