I have to agree with Phil, I much prefer side two. Side one is so over produced (IMHO). I like Dream'n'away, but I feel that real horns would have sounded so much better. Side two sounds much warmer and more comfortable. Some of those male backing vocals on side one are really trashy (again, MHO). I guess it was the style of the time, but this album doesn't even come close to Practical Jokers, or even The Sound of Trees. My favourite track is actually Private Lives. I suppose Mr Richard B and Ms Elizabeth T might seem a bit dated to people now.....quote:Actually, I think some of the original album tracks were better. Like on side two, they’re pretty average musically, but that had a certain warmth that I prefer – even though a lot of people seem to like those American tracks, the slicker tracks.”
Pity we;ll never hear the original side one. Does phil actually play anything on side one? None of the guitars sound like him.
