CD Reviews

Album shows that Thomas is one of Canada's best!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am greatly surprised at the fact that Ian Thomas has been almost forgotten entirely when people talk about Canada's great songwritters of the 70's and 80's. During these two decades Ian Thomas wrote songs that became monster hits on Canadian radio but for a very strange reason, hardly made any noise on American radio. It wasn't unless a popular american band such as Santana did one of Ian's songs that it became a hit there (Remember all the success Santana had with "Hold on"?). Anyway, if you listen to this CD you'll see just how good Ian really was. Even 18 songs isn't enough for this album for it lacks 4 distinct hits that Ian had. For example, "I'll do you right was one of his biggest songs ever and there was no room for it on this album. The album also surprisngly lacks the three hits ("Levity","Back to square one", and "Another one just past by") off Ian's last solo album in 88 "Levity", making a total of four hits that could've been on this album as well. Despite this though, the CD is great to listen to and it's nice that they ordered the songs in when they were written so you could see how Ian progressed throughout the 70's and 80's. Overall, the album is one of the most used albums in my collection and is a must-have for any fans of canadian music."
