CD Reviews

(5 out of 5 stars)

".... and I'd probably buy it. With all due respect to the songwriting (and there are some top-notch tunes on "Shelter Me"), Richard Page is just _that_ good a singer, period. As others have noted, most people know Page from his stint in Mr. Mister and, before that, in the band Pages. One can only hope someone will wise-up and re-release "Future Street" (originally on Columbia) and "Pages" (originally on Capitol). I picked up "Shelter Me" shortly after it's release and listened a few times ... liked it very much. Just this past weekend, I had about four hours of driving to do and just grabbed it off the shelf on my way out the door. All I can say is it was a wonderful re-discovery of a finely crafted album. And it's almost criminal that Page is not more appreciated."
A True Musician's Album
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this album for 99p at a clearance sale...which is really sad, since it indicates the absolute lack of correllation these days between musical talent and record sales. This album consists of a bunch of high quality compositions played by real musicians...not sequenced on some computer - and the difference is obvious. Just listen to the acoustic guitars and miked drums...not to mention the beautiful singing...And like all good music, grows on you with every listen...They don't make music like this any more - probably because no one buys it...what a pity. But this album is a masterpiece - and worthy of any serious musician's respect."
Everybody else is an also-ran...

"... in the singer-songwriter universe. I have a long listener history with Page, as Pages (both the band and the eponymous 1981 album) are among my all-time favorites. This album is a natural flow from the last Pages disc (and a blessed skip over the Mr. Mister and Third Matinee era), with signature grooves and aching lyrics. Listen to "The Best Thing" and try to hold back the tear. Now, consider the authoritative rumor that he wrote it about his dying mother, to whom the album is dedicated, and see if you don't burst into sobs.

What the heck is wrong with the American music-listening public that Richard Page wallows in obscurity while Ashlee Simpson lipsyncs her way to fame and fortune? A question for another day, perhaps, but one that will pester you while you listen to this flawless, evocative lost gem. Get a copy while you still can. And get a copy of "Pages", too, while you are at it."
