Very Good Album, But Get The "Two-fer" Instead

(4 out of 5 stars)
""Purity Of Essence" was the Rumour's third and final album. Keyboard player Rob Andrews is gone, and the band has shifted their sound towards tight, punchy power-pop songs. They do a great version of Randy Newman's "Have You Seen My Baby", and originals "Tula", "Houston", and "I Don't Want The Night To End" are also impressive. But, as much as I love this music, I must advise that there is a better way to get it. In 2001 a collection called "Not Just A Rumour, More A Way Of Life" was released that has almost every song on this album (only "Name And Number" was left off), AND almost all of the Rumour's second album, "Frogs Sprouts Clogs and Krauts" as well. And at about the same price, it's a much better deal. As of this writing, it is still in print and available on Amazon/CDNow."
