CD Reviews

Songs from cartoon series "Mission Magic"
05/07/1999
(3 out of 5 stars)

"When Springfield was faltering during the mid 70's he did a Saturday morning cartoon series called "Mission Magic" that ran for about two years on ABC. During each show there was a song that he recorded that went along with the theme of the show. Here are the songs from the cartoon series. Most of these have been out of print for quite some time. The sound quality is good on the new CD, I'm not sure if it has been remastered or not, but it sounds like it has. Not alot that stands out of the 16 tracks, just bouncy 70's pop. Highlights are "I Want You," Starlight, Starbright," "We're Gonna Have A Good Time," and "You Can Really Do It." A must for Springfield collectors."

"This album will have you singing the songs as you walk down the street. The first time I listen to it I thought ,How did he get famous with this? But the more I listened to it the more I wanted to listen to it.My 10 year old daughter loves this album.I told her it was classic bubble gum rock, but she loves it any way.She has asked for her own copy of the Cd.I love the idem of her listening to a mature good role model rather than some of the new artist of today. Parents get you kids to listen to some of your old favorites , music is a wonderful thing to share with your kids."

"I ordered Backtracks with great anticipation and it did not dissappoint me! I had most of the songs on LP and needless to say was thrilled when it came out on CD. The songs of the 70's were light and just plain made you feel good. That's what it's like listening to those songs again."
