REVIEWS:
By Yours Truly
Like alot of albums I own I don't recall how I came to posess this one, but I'm glad I do. While Richard Torrance is probably not a name that rings any bells nowadays, back in the mid 70's he put out several above albums, this one being my favorite and the reason it's my first submission of the man's work.
If you've looked thru the list of players on this disc you know it's a stellar group, with the likes of Billy Payne from Little Feat as an example. The tunes on this disc range from upbeat, good timey stuff to beautiful ballads. This one also includes what I believe is his biggest "hit" Rio De Janerio Blue. Along with that cut my favs include "Circle of Confusion", a great rocker and "Under Your Spell".
If you're a fan of the singer/songwriter genre of the 70's then I think it's a safe bet that you'll enjoy this one and welcome it as a wonderful addition to your music collection.

Yes I do, but I'm not sure on what shape it's in. I'll be ripping it in the near future and if it don't sound too bad then I'll be posting it to the blog.

Stay Tuned.
