By Og Oggilby TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 16 Mar. 2010
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I despaired that this album would ever be released on CD, and, although I bet it'll scarcely break into double sales figures, it is something of a rare gem of its type.

Reggie Knighton had played guitar with the American soft-rock group The Grass Roots, and also played in the band of former Lovin' Spoonful mainman John Sebastian in the mid -70's. He succeeded in getting a record deal woth CBS / Columbia records in 1977, and released an excellent, self-titled debut album. Although it sounded like any one of a number of LA based singer-songwriter records, lyrically, Knighton penned songs which featured some unusual subject matter - such as Alien life forms, being a drug dealer, etc. By 1979, he'd got a band together, and released this album, called, somewhat uninspiringly, 'The Reggie Knighton Band', which was produced by Queen / Cars producer Roy Thomas Baker. Baker graced the album with a big, late 1970's radio production, and Knighton responded with a fine, again very unusual set of songs. 'Clone In Love' was a song about, well, a Clone being in Love; 'The King And I' was about Elvis Presley, and the late King's fondness of shooting up TV sets with a rifle; 'Highway Patrol' is about a highway patrolman who wants to 'get down and play some rhythm and blues', who 'just gets laughed 'casue he wears short hair and shiny shoes'. Throughout, the band back Knighton with searing bursts of hard rock guitar, crashing drums and genuine rock power. Occasionally, the rather heavy backing tracks sound a little lumpen, but Knighton's light voice adds subtlety and colour to proceedings to compensate.

One other thing; on my vinyl version of the album, the track 'Lear Jet' ends with the sound of the tape slowing down.

To be fair, this album would be good enough if judged only in "pop rock" circles, but my beef with it has always been that it gets mentions in "aor" and "melodic rock" circles, as some overlooked, almost "mythical" gem. I bought it on LP eons ago, and the fact that I got rid of it should have warned me. However, I thought I would give it another chance, now it's on CD. My instincts were right first time. "The King And I" is still the only track that had a redeeming aspect (for me personally). The rest, well..... they may indeed have interesting lyrics, but musically don't grab my attention. They are what they are, and even Roy Thomas Baker's involvement did not perk them up, (not that there is much of his trademark sounds to these ears). I think this album highlights what often happens in the aor world. A respected expert or scribe happens to like a particular "quirky" album that doesn't fit the usual aor sound, and launches a crusade to champion it amongst the masses. We all have personal "one-offs" that don't fit the mould, I'm sure, but they shouldn't be mentioned in the same breath as those with the "standard" sound (even if that sound is a cult genre). Anyway, don't believe the myth with this one!

HASH(0x9549e708) out of 5 stars Greatest Power Pop Album Nobody Ever Heard. 10 Mar. 2010
By Beekay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
All the songs on this album are fantastic pop/rock songs that should have been hits on the radio back in the 70's. The singing is excellent and the musicianship superb, especially the wonderful guitar hooks. Unfortunately, due to almost complete lack of support for the album from the record label almost no one heard this album when it was released. I had a friend play it for me in 1980 and was amazed at how good it was. The cassette copy of it I had self-destructed many years ago and I feared I would never be able to listen to these songs again. I was thrilled when I found this re-issue on Amazon. The songs sound as good today as they did thirty years ago!

HASH(0x9549e960) out of 5 stars Reggie Knighton!! 9 Oct. 2011
By Laura M. Cospito - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I worked in a...are you ready for this? not-for-profit record store back in tht 70's. We had all kinds of unusual LPs, many imported. Reggie Knighton got quite a bit of play there and I had two albums by him which were subsequently borrowed by a DJ I thought was my friend. When I was moving out to the Pacific NW, I asked if he could give back my albums, he also had Bob Segarini, You Gotta Have Pop. He claimed he had no idea what I was talkimg about! Dang!! Now I have found Reggie Knighton again! I am delighted. I already have the Segarini CD, found several years ago. Life is good! I'm a clone in love! Grin. Laura

Great release from the past. I Love the digital recording after 20 + years of casette tapes and records. If you liked this artist back in the late 70's you will enjoy this CD!
