CD Reviews

A 70s Pop Classic
John O'Neill | Alpharetta, GA | 02/05/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"One of my favorite LPs from the '70s - what a joy it is to see this getting the digital treatment. If you like the sound of the title track you'll love this CD. Here we get all of 1976's "Moonlight Feels Right" LP plus five bonus tracks culled from the 1977 follow up "Rock and Roll Rocket" including Starbuck's second hit "Everybody Be Dancin'". Starbuck's sound is immediately recognizable due to Blackman's unique voice, the emphasis on synths, and Bo Wagner's marimba and vibes. Honestly how many pop/rock groups have you ever known to work vibes into their act? And it works. At times funky, at times... well, quirky, this release is sure to please 70s music nuts. One of those guilty pleasures to be sure.The only complaint - and it's a small one - clocking in at only 50 minutes WITH the bonus tracks, the remaining five tracks from "Rock and Roll Rocket" could easily have been included here. ("Benny Bought The Big One", "Don't You Know How To Love A Lady", and an alternate take on "Rock & Roll Rocket" are available on "Backtracks" for completests along with "One of These Mornings" which is extended version of the "Little Bird Reprise".)"
It's about time!!

"Been checking in with amazon .com and my local music store for years hoping to find an old copy of this or a rerelease. This collection of songs is too, too awesome and I have missed it immensely. Bruce Blackmans vocal style and delivery are very unique and the rest of the band clicks and grooves like there's no end!! I was lucky enough to see these guys on T.V. twice when this album was on the charts and they blew my socks off.Bo Hobbs is so exceptional on percussion and xylophone too! Thanx order my copy right now!!!"
Pop-Funk From '76

"This was quirky, feel good funky pop fun for the mid 70's.Yet, as quirky as Starbuck sounded to some it was very hip for the time and very distinct despite the use of 70's disco-like synthesizers (this group was anything but disco). The best track will always be Moonlight Feels Right. What other band of the 70's could groove to a little bit of white soul funk using the calypso sounding marimba ? Each track is highly memorable and full of melody.Lead singer Bruce Blackman had a vocal signature style very unique in a cool and befitting 70's sorta way... Not a single downer or trash track on here. This is a great cd to travel back in time to 1976 !"
