The speed of the "source" (record) used to make this CD played way too slow. You hear occasional pops from the record as well. The track "It Takes Time" (on the LP originally) is missing -- it probably skipped!
Also BEWARE of the same CD retitled 'Sweet Love Song Of My Soul' -- same
lousy sound quality and speed issue.
Kim Carnes herself, is not pleased with this release and doesn't even want it being sold as.
Maybe someday, someone will get it right."
Country and pop from 1970

"The tracks on this album date back to the late 1960s and early 1970s, when Kim Carnes began her long struggle to make it as a solo artist. This was her first album, released in 1970 on the short-lived Amos label. It was produced by rockabilly legend Jimmy Bowen, with whom she'd link up again 18 years later for her first album for MCA, 'View From The House'.
Sweet Love Song To My Soul
Everything Has Got To Be Free
Do You Want To Dance
I Won't Call You Back
To Love Somebody
Fell In Love With A Poet
One More River To Cross
You Can Do It To Me Anytime
Rest On Me
You may recognize 'To Love' from Carole King's first album, or 'To Love Somebody' by the Bee Gees. Although the sound quality is very good, the production sounds very dated, so this record is not quite my cup of tea. It puts me in the mind of early Olivia Newton-John albums, aimed at both country and pop radio. But if you remember the sound of seventies radio, or just want to hear some rarities featuring Kim's lovely voice, this CD is worth checking out. I also wish that Magnum had been able to use the original cover photo that accompanied this music, rather than the strange pink cover from another era.
When this review was written in late 2004, Kim had just released a new CD featuring songs of this nature...if this CD interests you, I'd recommend a visit to her website for the latest news and complete discography."
