CD Reviews

A little-known gem - and some news
Friendlycard | Norfolk, UK | 01/13/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a welcome (albeit fairly expensive) limited edition CD issue of a great album from 1982. It's long been near the top of my 'got it on vinyl but want it on CD' list.

The music defies exact categorisation but fits loosely into the West Coast/rock/pop genre. Perhaps the nearest (though not very near) comparison would be with early Christopher Cross, though All Dressed Up is a rather more up-tempo album. If you like Hall & Oates, Toto or Ned Doheny then it's a fair bet that you're going to like David Roberts.

There is a remarkable consistency here, making it difficult to highlight best tracks, but 'Wrong Side of the Tracks', 'Midnight Rendezvous' and 'Anywhere You Run To' are stand-out cuts.

Singer-songwriter David Roberts is backed by a stellar cast of supporting musicians, including Steve Lukather, Jay Graydon, Jeff Porcaro, David Foster and Bill Champlin, with Greg Mathieson supplying meticulous production. A really great album, and I'm glad it's turned up on CD.

NEWS (January 2009):

Admirers of this AOR classic might like to know that there are two new David Roberts releases - "Better Late Than Never" and "The Missing Years" - on the Japanese Vivid Sound label. These do not appear to be listed on Amazon as yet, though Amazon's Japanese site (which can be read in English) has them. Both can be strongly recommended - the music is excellent, and these albums are likely to be sure-fire collectables. In fact, "The Missing Years" is very much "All Dressed Up, Part Two"."
