This review is from: Andrew Gold & What'S Wrong With This Picture & All This And Heaven Too & Whirlwind (Audio CD)
Super talented musician, offspring of film composer Ernest Gold and singing voiceover to the stars Marni Nixon.
Probably more famous within the musical community than with the public. The first three albums are all great Beatlesque West Coast soft rock. The final album from 1980 Whirlwind is a more stripped back affair and should appeal to anyone who likes their music with a tougher edge, but whos going to take you seriously when you become associated with a particular style of music? After listening to these albums you get the feeling he could have indulged himself in any musical genre and made a quality record and if you are a person with an eclectical musical pallate you will love this set.
The package from Edsel represents stunning value, not only do you get these four albums but a disc of rarities featuring alternate versions, live tracks and previously unreleased songs. The foldout digipack presentation and booklet add to the experience and the sound quality is great.
I can also recommend his obscure album The Fraternal Order Of The All, which does not get a mention in the booklet but is a great Pastiche of some very well known 60s groups.
