Timeless & Classic
on 25 February 2014
I've had this on vinyl for some time and long hunted a UK CD version. The album is timeless, and the title track alone is worth the CD price. Grace Slick has one of the best rock vocals of all time yet largely unknown here as a solo artist, but better remembered for her earlier Airplane/Starship work.
"Dreams" is melodic, vibrant and rich in feel-good factors, full of uplifting classic orchestral rock arrangements, all with Grace's superb vocals sitting on top. It only scratched the lower chart positions when released in 1980, so will appeal to fresh ears today. Other stand out tracks are "El Diablo" (again ranging from melodic to masterful in a few bars); "Do It the Hard Way" (a great bluesy, rock ballad, great vocals alongside searing guitar chords - wow!).
Thoroughly happy; memories rekindled; and a lesson to today's vocalists. A great buy!
