Well why the 5 stars I hear you say, well on the whole this album isn't half as bad as her previous effect, there are decent recordings like 'I finally got it right this time', 'Lyin' in my arms' and 'Prettiest face'. Also the final track from this session 'The night life' is wonderful. Unfortunately there are songs like 'Will we ever make love in love again' & 'Ain't It worth the price you pay' (country-by-numbers). There are usually good reasons why record labels don't release albums, they are not just being mean to fans, even Vikki didn't remember much about making this album.
But then you come to the 7 songs that didn't make her first albums for Columbia. Several are left-overs from her brilliant 'Love story' album, so you can see why there were good songs in the vaults. All of the tracks are wonderful. 'The sun ain't gonna shine anymore' is one of the best versions I have heard of the song, taken at galloping tempo. 'The end of the world' is also great. 'Che sera' is an extra track from her Spanish album 'En Espanol' and is also a worthy offering. I wasn't expecting too much from this album because of some of the other reviews I had read, but I was pleasantly surprised, at least 11 of the songs are great. The liner notes to the album are also good and informative, a rare thing these days. On the whole Vikki Carr fans won't be disappointed!
Lost within these challenging circumstances was an unfinished and unnamed ten-song country-flavoured collection, recorded in Nashville during September 1975. It has remained in the Columbia vaults until now and consisting of mainly original material guaranteed to stretch the singer’s emotional range. LYIN‘ IN MY ARMS, A THING CALLED SADNESS and WHO IN THE WORLD are highlights but IT’S ME AND YOU which really hit my button, as vocally Vikki’s deep vocal rendition pulls the lyrics hither and thither to great effect. In fact, of the ten songs, I only recognised the bluesy THE NIGHT LIFE; a number which appeared on a contemporary Doris Day album, LOVE HIM! during the mid-Sixties. Vikki’s version, accompanied by simple guitar is a wonderful expressive exercise with her vocal replete with an attractive edge and impressive jazzy intonation. Produced by Ron Bledsoe with whom Vikki had collaborated at Liberty on her early foray into country music, the arrangements are varied and imaginative.
Seven bonus tracks consist of other unreleased Columbia masters mainly recorded for inclusion in previous albums with THE SUN AIN’T GONNA SHINE ANYMORE, I BELIEVE IN YOU and THE END OF THE WORLD immediately familiar as having been hits for The Walker Brothers, Neil Young and Skeeter Davis respectively whilst CHE SERA survived as an outtake from Vikki’s first Columbia Spanish-language collection EN ESPANOL (1972).
Overall, this is a superlative tribute to Vikki who continues to enjoy Latin popularity via her Spanish-language recordings. Real Gone Music’s usual fulsome notes give thorough attention to this “lost” album and must be thanked for its rediscovery, with remastering achieved to the highest degree along with the bonus tracks whilst also placing these songs within the early changing Seventies music scene.
