Format: Audio CD
Emitt Rhodes, born in Decatur, Illinois in 1950, is regarded as a power pop master by those who know his music, but somehow he remains one of the most overlooked and under-appreciated pop-rock singer-songwriters of the 60's / 70's despite favourable comparisons to the likes of Paul McCartney and Badfinger. The Hip-O Select label go some way to addressing this travesty with a sumptuous, limited edition, remastered 2CD set which contains four original albums. These albums have largely been out-of-print over the years ("Mirror" and "Farewell To Paradise" have only been issued on CD in Japan until now) so it's a treat to have them reissued together in one definitive package.

"The American Dream", the first album here, was a contractual obligation that was completed by Rhodes after his band The Merry-Go-Round had disbanded in early 1969. It combined leftover band tracks with new Rhodes recordings and featured session players such as Hal Blaine, Larry Knechtel and Don Randi. It was temporarily shelved by A&M but they issued it in 1970, and then again as a slightly different version in early 1971 - a move that only served to confuse consumers as, by then, his first solo album proper was in the marketplace on the ABC-Dunhill label.

Among the highlights on "The American Dream" are `Mother Earth', `Textile Factory', the poignant `Someone Died', the impressively orchestrated `Come Ride, Come Ride', `Let's All Sing' and `You're A Very Lovely Woman' (later covered by Linda Ronstadt). You'll have to look elsewhere though for the Merry-Go-Round's best-known track - the classic `Live', a song later covered by The Bangles.

Emitt Rhodes is a great lost talent of the late 60s and early 70s. From his very earliest band, The Palace Guard, who had a fine minor US hit with a track called 'Like Falling Sugar', through to his band The Merry-Go-Round, and then on to the early, pre-solo demos that make up the first few tracks on this absorbing double album set, before releasing the glory that was his debut album, Rhodes crafted sweet and thoughful pop music, much of it created by himself in its entirety at his home studio. Positive comparisons abound to the best of solo Paul McCartney, but without the penchant for over-sweetening or simple tweeness that frequently dogs Macca's work, ironically Rhodes would find a much more sympathetic, and potentially larger audience these days, when lesser talents like The Feeling and others seem to be cleaning up. Rhodes' last recordings to be commercially available were released in 1973; he's never troubled us since, which is a great shame. There is not a duff note of music on this nicely-packaged, and strongly tuneful set. A lovely record.

Format: Audio CD
The musical style herein is both reflective, plaintive and sincere. This self evident quality can never age, because it is from the heart. His able multi-Instrumentation and 4 track recording deck shows modern pop for what they are, running on empty and over produced. His "Emitt Rhodes" debut album has the song " Fresh as a Daisy" which represents the overall buzz of this flawless production.His guitar craft is riveting,just hear "Long Time No See". Also his lyrics featured on "You Should be Ashamed" and "Live Till you Die"" burst with narrative.Brilliant

My Stone classics are "Really wanted You", and ""Love will Stone You", both from "Mirror", which has been slightly underated over the years,relating to issues surrounding his recording time scales. The A & M issued "The American Dream" featured songs I was not familar with, recorded before his offical debut album. A great CD collection, also including " Farewell to Paradise" his swansong Album, with a contemporary singer-songwiter feel to it, check out his " See No Evil", "Trust No One" and "Only Lovers Decide". I suppose his own liner notes set out the reasons for this degree of introspection. Soaring !

In truth there was a time when you couldn't give away Emitt Rhodes albums here in the UK - but something of a rediscovery of his music has taken place in the last two decades that has brought his LPs out of the bargain bins and into the eBay lists.

Hailing from Hawthorne (a suburb in Los Angeles) - Rhodes first came to prominence with the US sixties group THE MERRY-GO-ROUND who made one self-titled album for A&M Records in 1967.A&M issued a wad of singles to promote the new signing - but neither they nor the album bothered the charts (these releases are quite sought after now). Rhodes then went solo and that's where this long-overdue 2CD career overhaul comes storming in. Here are the Mirrors and American Dreams...

Released initially in the USA in May 2009 as a 2CD set (belatedly released in the UK January 2010) - "The Emitt Rhodes Recordings (1969-1973)" on Hip-O Select B0012926-02 (Barcode 602527042732) is a worldwide limited edition of 5000 that contains 4 full albums and one rare non-album 7" single. It breaks down as follows:

Disc 1 (66:13 minutes):
1. Mother Earth
2. Pardon Me
3. Textile Factory
4. Someone Died
5. Come Ride, Come Ride
6. Let's All Sing
7. Holly Park
8. Saturday Night
9. You're A Very Lovely Woman
10. Mary Will You Take My Hand
11. The Man He Was
12. In The Days Of The Old
13. `Til The Day After
Tracks 1 to 13 are the album "The American Dream" recorded in 1969 but released after his debut album (14 to 25 below) in April 1971 in the USA on A&M SP-4254 and May 1971 in the UK on A&M AMLS 64254

14. With My Face On The Door
15. Somebody Made For Me
16. She's Such A Beauty
17. Long Time No See
18. Lullabye
19. Fresh As A Daisy
