Sadly, very disappointing

(1 out of 5 stars)

"My first exposure to Mighty Joe Young was beyond pleasant. There is a scene in the early JAmes Caan film "Thief" where he meets a girl for a date in a bar. Mighty Joe Young is live on stage pounding out the song "Turning Point". Caan walks in, the drums start. It's a heavy rock/blues riff/drum line that you would immediately bop your head to, almost unconsciously. The song is really that captivating.

Regrettably, the song is "redone" on this album, and quite frankly it is terrible. Who ever produced this, or mixed it should be fired. The sound on the album is so synthetic it hurts. The background singers are absolutely attrocious and it pains me to listen to it.

I just can't recommend this album. Buy Mighty Joe Live, as I think he is in his ellement and the difference from the live version of this song and the one I found here is night and day.

I love ya Joe, just not on this album."
