For me, his best.
on 15 November 2007
Still great (musically) after all these years, especially his alternative arrangement of Take It Easy (co-written with Glen Frey of The Eagles), whilst the closing suite, Sing My Songs To Me and For Everyman is still and for me always will be his finest moment. Despite having owned a few, I never really rated any of his others, either from this period or later.
The album's biggest liability, though, is the thick sound quality, especially in the upper registers, which is even more apparent on CD. The latest, supposedly digitally remastered issue, is nothing of the sort (and I bought two of them) ~ they look and sound exactly the same as my first generation CD issue and even include the standard note about the limitations of an original analog recording being exposed by the high resolution of the CD medium. If the recording really had been remastered, the booklet should say where, when and by whom, but it doesn't. Whether any of his other albums from this period have genuinely been remastered, I know not, but this one most definitely hasn't.
