CD Reviews

Timeless Sunshine Pop
ben phillipson | London, England | 11/30/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I first heard this album just a couple of years ago and was immediately blown away by its beauty. Roger Nichols` melodies are captivating and memorable whilst the harmonies are awe-inspiring and the arrangements have that sophisticated edge typical of the best in late 60s US soft rock. Roger Nichols` name is probably most well-known for his contributions to The Carpenters` reportoire, but the likes of Just Beyond Your Smile and Don`t Take Your Time fully deserve your attention. Anyone who already posseses the original 12-track LP should be aware that this new edition includes seven bonus tracks from Small Circle 45s all of which are similarly superb. This album has been neglected for long enough - let the sunshine in!"
Ah, lovely!

"One of the best soft rock-albums of all time. Almost as good as "pet sounds" (Tony Asher produced this one too). Nichols interpretation of the bacharach-song "Don't go breaking my heart" is the best one recorded in musichistory. I wonder why it didn't show up on the 3CD "Look of love"-box released in 1998? It's too good to be missed. The intro-song, "Don't take your time" is also a classic. Classic stuff. Buy!"
A newly discovered treasure

"As an A&M Records fan for many years, I was very pleased to 'discover' this album recently. Upon acquiring a Japanese pressing of a Burt Bacharach compilation that included Roger Nichols & Friends version of "Don't Go Breaking My Heart," I was favorably impressed with the sound of this group. Also, as one who's enjoyed Roger Nichols compositions over the years, I thought that I'd splurge and try this album. Wow! It's quickly become one of my favorites. If you like sixties pop -- if you've ever liked the Carpenters or Burt Bacharach recordings, I highly recommend this disc."
