Rock Bottom indeed
J. C Clark | Overland Park, KS United States | 12/06/2006
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Cab is great, but not here. Minnie is eviscerated, the rest are rather sluggish.

And Spivak, well I knew the name but had never heard him before. And won't again. This is generic MOR dance music that would be perfectly at home as blah-blah background in some mediocre 40s movie. The guys can play, but the whole sound is just kinda sleepy and dull. No fire, no zip, and a bland vocalist combine for instantly forgettable material.

Save your dough, however little they want, for something with the flash that made this an era of memorable tunes. This is 32 minutes of decidedly second-rate stuff."
