I adore this album, mainly due to its ability to appeal to my sense of nostalgia for things connected with my formative years in the early eighties!I am actually slightly biased as I spoke to Lee Curreri ( Bruno, the sensitive one on the keyboard)recently.The TV show is being repeated on a digital channel and he was over here to promote it. He wrote the evocative "Be My Music" which is on the album and he is also producing a new version of " Hi-Fidelity" in the near future. The original was a hit for Valerie Landsburg and is featured on this album. It makes you want to sing along!
The other songs are well worth listening to."Desdemona" is a reworking of "Othello" which may be useful if you can't be bothered to read Shakespeare's original!Lori Singer's wavering voice does not detract from the beautiful, "It's Gonna Be A long Night" and if you want uplifting, Debbie Allen and Erica Gimpel singing " I Still Believe In Me" gives you a sense of pride, hope and belief in your dreams.
I said at the beginning of this review that my sense of nostalgia makes me love this album. I think it's more than that. It stands alone as a product of its time and is fun to listen to.It's like an old friend that you turn to when you want cheering up!
