For the unitiated Le Roux has been around for awhile making fine soft rock in a southern style.
Most southerners first heard the band on the cut "New Orleans Ladies" which remains a fabulous tune and a rare opportunity to hear the word "sashay", defined as a quite stylish feminine gait.
The album charted but not by much. Followed by the spaghetti cover lp featuring "Window Eyes" Le Roux continued to toil in anonymity except for those loyal southerners. Next was the "up" lp which is now briefly available as an import. It was nice and featured "Roll Away the Stone" as a single. It sold about like the others.
The band then left Capitol and produced "last safe place" for RCA. To the surprise of all it produced a top 40 single "Nobody Said It Was Easy" sounding a lot like Little River Band. The title cut "Last Safe Place" was released and charted in the 60's which was unfortunate because it's probably the finest rock cut the band produced. Also check out "Make Believe" on this disc; beautiful ballad.
This is an excellent disc, more complete than all predecessors and far better than their last release on RCA. It's also impossible to find so if you can actually order it thru Amazon break out the charge card and pony up the $22.00. It's worth it.
Also recommended, the Bayou DeGradable set as partner to this cd. Together they represent a fine ballad band that occasionally rocks. They just never quite got their due.
