CD Reviews

Still wondering why "Gimme an Inch Girl" wasn't a bigger hit
Paul D. Rasmussen Jr. | Pittsburgh PA, United States | 04/05/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is the best way to go if you're a singles collector. Other CD's with "Shake It" are much inferior in sound quality and none but the "Stealiin' Home" album feature "Gimme an Inch Girl" which was a minor follow-up hit to "Shake It" in 1979."
Shake your neighbourhood
vladimir yelbaev | moscow, russia | 03/21/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Immediately preceding the ex-Fairport Convention founder member's next important stage (Hi-Fi supergroup) - this excellent album in 1978 came out on a cute Mushroom label, yielded one terrific movie theme ("Shake It") and generally went to prove Matthews' own distaste at being categorized. If not for the hate of folk (how come?), than for the sake of his character, Ian (nowadays spelled Iain) Matthews goes wonderfully electric, disarmingly tuneful and captivating rhythmic. Not to mention awesome baritone sax to attenuate Matthews' tenor. Arguably, all-time best tenor in world pop, Matthews softly pumps emotion into "Shake It" till it bursts into refrain. It's all yours now."
Stealin' Home is Gold

"Just love the variety of musical styles Ian uses on this album. I bought this album as a cutout years ago. Recently put it on cassette tape with selections from his Hit & Run album as well. Why this guy never got the recognition he deserves is beyond me. There's certainly enough enjoyable music here to make it worth the purchase. His voice is an absolute charm to listen to."
