Village Records To the
uninformed they were a one hit wonder from an era that produced a lot of
one hit wonders. However anyone who took the time to go beyond their
"hit" found some great music from two really talented guys. They were
the West Coast Simon & Garfunkel if you will. This disc collects up
fourteen tracks that cover their output as well as any single disc
could. The tracks have all been remastered and reveal just how well
recorded their albums were. This is not the light-weight folk pop you
might think it is. These
tunes still stand up today. One
listen to "Oh Mommy" and you might wonder if times have changed at all since
the early seventies. .
The reviewer from the
All Music Guide is obviously not familiar with the quality and depth of Brewer & Shipley's
material. There are actually three labels that Brewer & Shipley
recorded albums for that are
not represented here. The Kama Sutra
material that is represented is great, but Barry White's lyrics state my
review the best:
people say that too much of anything is not good for you.
don't know about that. It doesn't seem to me like it's enough.
There's just not enough of it. There's just not enough!"
