The best story songs ever,
This review is from: Desire (Audio CD)
Close your eyes and listen to Romance in Durango and you can almost see the movie unfold like the best Spaghetti Western Sergio Leone never made.
Point the CD back a few tracks and you're once again in movie land, this time at the hapless hotel/casino on Black Diamond Bay (the twist in the last verse is done with such amazing eloquence it really does take you aback).
Lie back and listen to Mozambique (one of Bob's happy songs - an art of his that is often criminally over looked) and you can almost feel the sun beating down on you and hear the beach bar calling.
Then there is Sara - one of the most heart rending songs you'll ever hear and a rare glimpse right through the mist at what lies beneath the songs.
The bottom line is any one of these songs could have made it as a movie (the Hurricane famously did, although this isn't really Bob's own story). But hey - why dilute these gems on the screen when the songs tell you all you need to know.
