CD Reviews

Nice collection of session-singer Tony Burrows' hits
hyperbolium | Earth, USA | 05/04/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This was originally issued as a compilation of session singer Tony Burrow's hits called "Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes)", and then reissued as one of the Bubblegum Classics volumes.Burrows, amazingly, had five top-10 hits under the guise of five different studio groups in the 70s, ranging from the novelty of The Pipkins "Gimme Dat Ding" to the proto-beach tune "Beach Baby" by First Class.The hits (also including Edison Lighthouse's "Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes)", White Plains' "My Baby Loves Lovin'" and The Brotherhood of Man's "United We Stand"), are all hugely memorable radio fare. The remaining tracks, including followups from the hitmaking aggregations, solo tracks, and a few that just never made it, don't really measure up. There's nothing wrong with them, but they don't have the magic that would propel them to the top-40.Overall, a very enjoyable disc, and a nice tribute to a previously faceless singer whose voice made quite a dent in the charts."
Give me something that I can remember.

"This CD compiles 18 tracks sung by session singer Tony Burrows. Burrows had no success as a solo singer, but managed to have five hit songs as the lead singer of various "groups". Remember "Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes)", "Beach Baby", "My Baby Loves Lovin'", "United We Stand" and "Gimme Dat Ding"? Yup, those were all sung by our man Tony. All five of those hits are here, plus 13 other songs which are very obscure, but mostly good. Fans of pop music of the '70s should enjoy this CD."
Sweet summer music

"Hey what can be said that has not already been said. This guy Burrows lended his voice to an array of pop bands that turned out one hit wounders but could never quite make it commercially. So what. A good love song is a good love song no matter where it come from. So if your into music with strings, horns, deep bass with an array of percussion instruments set in the style of 'lets get happy and celebrate lifes crushes on those lost or gained loved ones in the teenage years?', then this music is for you."
