"I've been trying to find a copy of this album that didn't cost an arm and a leg, but it has become very obscure, and therefore, pricey. Finally, however, the new CD called "The Very Best of Paul Davis / I Go Crazy" includes the 7 non-hits from this album, and the 2 hits ("Do Right" and "Cry Just a Little") are easily found on other "Best of" packages or iTunes. And Amazon had it at a great price - $7.99 new with Super Saver (free) shipping. Since I already had the two hits, I purchased the aforementioned "Best of" album, then combined what I had to burn my own homemade listening copy of this album.
Unless you really want the album packaging and possible inserts from this album, save your money and purchase the songs separately (also getting some extra bonuses along the way).
The track listing (which I didn't see on Amazon's listing of this album) is:
1. Do Right
2. Cry Just a Little
3. He Sang Our Love Songs
4. All the Way
5. Too Slow to Disco
6. Let Me Know If It's Over
7. Do You Believe in Love
8. So True
9. When Everything Else is Gone
By the way, if you like Paul Davis's honey-sweet voice and sentimental, non-objectionable lyrics, this album certainly won't disappoint. No big surprises here - it's all pretty characteristic of his other music with catchy musical hooks and great delivery.
This 1980 self-titled album should not be confused with Davis's earlier album of the same title from 1972.
After his retirement from music many years ago, I read that Paul recorded two new songs shortly before his recent death. Hopefully those will see release soon, and maybe even a re-release of some or all of his other albums on CD - wouldn't that be GREAT!"
