Back To The Basics

"As the title of my review says this cd has the Oaks getting back to what made them so fresh and exciting when they crossed over to country from gospel in 1977. Their vocals are more up front in the mix than some of the previous releases. The instruments are more country flavored than they've been for some time. Baby When Your Heart Breaks Down is an upbeat song with an a capella chorus. Where The Sun Always Shines is a poetic ballad which showcases Duane Allen's smooth lead voice. Deep In Louisiana is a mid-tempo cajun flavored song. Lady My Love is a Golden vocal that fits his voice and style to a "t". What'll I Do is another mid-tempo song that is standard Oaks fare. Perfect Love gives Joe a chance to step up to the plate. He laments in the song about letting quality women pass by looking for the "perfect love", which ultimately backfires on him. Ain't No Short Way Home is an upbeat kickin' song that takes advantage of all four vocalists in the chorus. Richard's rumbling Bass voice gets a lead on If All I Had Left. Anyone who likes the Oaks or miss the country music of the late 70's should find this to be a refreshing recording."

"I have been a HUGE ORB fan since I was a little girl in the 70's! I LOVE all the old stuff and some of the newer (especially the newest stuff released). I bought this CD for the first time a couple of weeks ago as I didn't even know it existed! This CD is beyond AWESOME! It is SO reminiscent of the "old style" yet is modernized. I felt like I was back in my little girl bedroom playing all the LPs again! What a great purchase! For all you true ORB fans from the "old days", you will really appreciate this one!"
