It has finally happened - the wonderful Walden Robert cassotto album is appearing on CD in its entirity. Bits of it have popped up over the last few years, but this will be the first release of the whole album. It's darin's first protest album and so don't expect any finger snapping, snarling lyrics about Mack The Knife. This is about Vietnam, Robert Kennedy, the environment and prison mistreatment. It is a wonderous tour de force but sadly sold very little. Here's hoping it makes more of a dent on CD.
Dr Dolittle ain't half bad either! There are some classics on here too, although the first side of the album was all ballads which kind of gets monotonous after a while. But After Today, When I Look In Your Eyes, Beautiful Things and Talk To The Animals are brilliant performances.
