What a fine collection of classic songs from days gone by!
This collection absolutely destroys the myth that its dangerous ground to bring out a covers album.
Dewey Bunnell has to get special mention as his vocal throughout is exceptional.
Across the pond efforts at UK classic songs is always a challenge but America's interpretation of The Zombies 'Time Of The Season' is wonderfully mood provoking. I'm sure Rod Argent would be giving a particular nod of approval for the effort.
They make the James Taylor (Something In The Way) and Paul Simon (America)classics as good as their own. Their feel for the tracks is as if they had been performing them for years. That for me is some compliment to the group.
The whole CD is a wonderful and gentle trip through time and it saves its finest moment for the finale.
'Back Pages' is an awesome performance and one of my favourite musical experiences for years.
Wonderfully crafted in an America format with a beautiful arrangement and oh so fragile heartfelt vocals.
I'm certain if this version of the track got decent air-play it would become a global classic once again.
This is a great CD; every musical home would benefit from owning a copy.
