4.0 out of 5 stars Lost genuis available at last, 28 Jun 2006
This review is from: The American Dream (Audio CD)
Yeah, yeah. We all know the Emmitt Rhodes story, right? Oh, maybe not. Lost genius, McCartney soundalike etc. etc. Well anyway, you can find out the back story from elsewhere. He now appears to have regained control of his catalogue and several decades of injustice are slowly being put right with a sensible reissue programme that should highlight someone who simply deserved to be a star. Here, there is only one thing that matters - the music. This is simply one of the great debut solo albums and it's a must have.

Want to know why? It's simple. ER has the gift. He can make you stop what you're doing and listen and he can make you laugh or cry. More to the point, you'll sit and wonder how such great music has been "lost" for so long.

The proof is in the pudding. Was there ever a better 70s non-hit than 'Pardon Me'? Did McCartney do anything in the 70s that could equal 'Someone Died'? Equally, we all know that 'Let's All Sing' is silly but McCartney has stooped lower and left less of an imprint. Me, I just want to sing along. Ditto, 'You're A Very Lovely Woman'. Simply a great, great lost song in the same way that is simply a great, great introduction to Emmitt Rhodes.

Now, where's the rest of the catalogue please?

This review is from: The American Dream (Audio CD)
I eagerly awaited this album and arrived promptly. I was disappointed however that the sleeve notes were in Russian, and I believe this should have been mentioned in the item description.
