I can't believe no one has reviewed this album yet.
This was originally released soon after McCartney had done his first solo record, playing all the parts and producing himself, Emmit did the same, but many, myself included, feel that he did it better. McCartney (the album) had an off-hand charm that was intentional, but Emmit's album is a very polished piece of work, a masterpiece, in fact. Rhodes was at the top of his game, fresh out of his hit group The Merry-Go-Round and burning with talent. There's not a false note on the album, it's as exquisitely crafted as a Bentley Continental, everything working together to make the whole more than the sum of its decetively simple parts. It has the "inevitable" feel of all perfect works of art. Anyone who likes classic Beatles style power-pop done with melody, soul and grace will bless the day they bought this album.
Emmit, we miss you.
