5.0 out of 5 stars YoHoHo YoHoHo !, 31 Mar 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hot City - The 1974 Unreleased Album [Digisleeve] (Audio CD)
Time to sing yohoho once again, put on the eye patch and swing from the rigging. The good ship SAHB have just sailed back into view and it's Land ho for this unexpected work of greatness that has just been found down the back of Shel Talmy's couch. You would think that a record that a band throw away and recorded again from scratch would not merit 5 stars. However this is SAHB. What meagre morsels are discarded from their banquet table are more than a meal for the miriad of bland pulp that gets labeled 'superstar'. For the fans who all have The Impossible Dream, this is the original interpretation of all those classic songs. All are recognisable but their delivery here is significantly different. I cannot say that they are better but they are good. More importantly, Alex's vocals is top notch. He is right on form here, perhaps the best recorded vocals available of the man. The liner notes are the usual entertaining banter from Chris and Ted describing the songs and the reasons behind them. If you own the Impossible Dream then you must buy this. If you don't have the Impossible dream then buy both.
