If love is real why can't you take love and lock love away i
Marc Flanagan | Santa Monica, Ca. | 07/28/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Composer and performer Randy Edelman recorded this album for Arista Records in the late 70's. There was a dearth of good music during this period, but this was one of the stand outs in the singer songwriter category. Randy accompanies himself on the piano and he is a gifted player his voice is endearing and the tunes are a delight. Mr Edelman went on to compose dozens and dozens of film scores and was the recipient of a Oscar nomination for his work on "The Last of the Mohicans". Put Randy on your HiFi and allow love to become all too real."
The Love In This Song Is Real

"I don't stay on top of who the best artists are, but there are lots of songs I love, sung by artists still unknown to me. In the 70's, back when it was still considered socially acceptable for radio stations to play beautiful music, such a song, "If Love Is Real", played often on one of Philadelphia's better stations, but only for a brief time. This song has haunted me for all those years, even though I never knew any of the words beyond the title, or who wrote it, who sang it or who played the piano. Just the sweet quiet nature of the song and the wonderful accompaniment.

Last night I was struggling yet again to get back to sleep at 2:30AM. I've often tried getting some peaceful song in my head - this time it was this song. Sorry to say it didn't lull me to sleep, but now the song is locked in my head 10 hours later, in spite of knowing so little about it! It didn't take too long to find the lyrics, the author/singer, and then the album. A bit pricey, but what's the dollar value of a song that dear to me? The very helpful previous reviews convinced me that the rest of the album will be equally beautiful. My order will be entered as soon as I post this review."
A Pleasant Exposure To Fine Art

"The music of nine of the ten selections is arranged by Randy Edelman and he wrote the lyrics for eight of the songs. He sings all ten selections.
The music, vocal and lyrics blend beautifully. He weaves intense and light emotions into the sound. His imagination runs free while he is "Looking Up At Mars".
The sound causes use of the repeat button to make the experience last longer. It is also diversified, reflecting the different moods. It is easy for me to let the music enter my mind when I forget my cd player.
I first heard his music on satellite radio. Once I heard "If Love Is Real" I knew I had to buy the cd. I am glad I did. What a delight!"
