CD Reviews

Lotsa Fun
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Brandon Cruz is (perhaps) best remembered as "Eddie" in "The Courtship of Eddie's Father." He's now an editor for the "South Park" TV show and a punk rocker. This album contains three versions of "Best Friend," the theme song for "Courtship." One features Bill Bixby. Another was recorded by Cruz and Mickey Dolenz for the Nilsson tribute album (but it got bumped when Ringo submitted a track). The third version is Cruz's enthusiastic punk version. What makes it very special is that the song's composer, Harry Nilsson, plays piano and sings on the track. Recorded just weeks before his death, it is probably the last completed song Harry recorded."

"A very interesting piece : Harry Nilsson's final recording! with a Hardcore version of BEST FRIEND from the tv show "Courtship of eddie's father" & also a look into Brandon's current ongoing's as a punk this was really put together quite well & also this is the only way to achieve DR. KNOW on cd ."
Not the sharpest knife in the drawer!

"It's no secret that Brandon Cruz is a complete joke. This vile CD features him throughout various stages of his career, backed by several different bonehead groups. He even gets Micky Dolenz in on the action. Maybe that sounds like a good time to you, but anyone with half a brain is going to fling this compact disc out the window after hearing the fourth version (in a row!) of "Best Friend." There's also the apocalyptic "Oh Daddy What If," just to put the icing on this urinal cake. An embarrassment for sure, but nothing unexpected from this former "Bad News Bears" child actor turned also-ran rock rube. I can rest easier knowing that fat man McGee is unemployed again."
