CD Reviews

A terrible, unwanted surprise after their promising debut
David Pearlman | Arlington, MA United States | 09/07/2004
(1 out of 5 stars)

"The first Grapefruit album ("Around Grapefruit", also available on CD from Repetoire) was a delightful late '60s pop album, fueled by nice harmonies, catchy tunes and sympathetic instrumentation. Not really essential, per se, but surely worth having if you are a fan of pop music from pop music's golden age.

This album, Grapefruit's second (and last) is, in contrast, complete junk. In place of high quality pop music, we get generic hard rock and boogie. It's really hard to believe this is even the same group. No matter how much you enjoy the first album you don't need this one. There isn't a single tune on this album that ranks with the material on the first one. Too bad.

Things that make you go hmmm... aside: Before this album was recorded, John Lennon offered Grapefruit the chance to record the then-unreleased Beatles track "Two of Us". They passed. Yikes.
A Change of Direction by Grapefruit

""Deep Water" was Grapefruit`s second album, originally released in 1969. If you like their first "Around Grapefruit" you may not necessarily like this one too. In fact, I was a bit disappointed with it in the beginning. I had expected more of the catchy psychedelic sounds which characterized their first album. This album has not got much of this. The addition of a new lead singer and a musical change towards a more soul-rock styled has made this something quite different. The main song writer is still George Alexander, elder brother of George Young of the Easybeats, and he writer first-rate material also for this album, it`s just a new style. Actually many of these song sound a little like the Easybeats` later records like "St. Louis". This album has now changed to be my favourite Grapefruit album The title track and opener "Deep Water" is a one of these Easybeats/Boxtops sound-alikes - great catchy tune. "Can`t Find Me" is another strong George Alexander effort - a country styled ballad. After couple of decent soul-rockers, style changes with the acoustic country track "The Right Direction" - another favourite a mine. New member, guitarist and singer, Bobby Ware contributes 3 songs, 2 of them pretty good -"L.A. and Back Again" and "Blues in Your Head". The closing track on the original album is for me the stand-out track. A beautiful melancholy ballad. George Alexander disbanded the band shortly after the release of the album. The 2 bonus tracks come from a single recorded by a a short-lived reconstruction of Grapefruit - featuring George Young and Harry Vanda. Both songs are good, but maybe not particularly memorable."
If you love the Rickfors-era Hollies, this is for you

"Grapefruit's second and final LP was quite different from its debut. This is more in the vein of hard rock, with heavy guitar & organ stylings. Most of it is fairly run-of-the-mill boogie rock, but the first & last tracks (of the original LP) are noteworthy. The title track. "Deep Water" ran up the Dutch charts to Number 5. The band's new lead vocalist sounds uncannily like The Hollies' early 70s replacement for Allan Clarke, Mikael Rickfors. Great track. The final cut, "Time to Leave", is a hit-that-should-have-been; a beautiful mid-tempo tune with, again, great vocals and fine instrumentation. The two bonus tracks sound like they changed personnel again, and are OK."
