Recently acquired. $2 at 5th Avenue Records And Tapes. My local second hand vinyl store is closing. Maybe because they raised the price on their dollar bin to a two dollar bin. Wrong as that may be, I picked a few up, because I won’t be able to later.
I’m really filling out my late Rod collection. This one has that cheesy Love Touch from the presumably awful movie, Legal Eagles. I admit, I like when Rod sings the line “I wanna be good for you, I didn’t me to be bad”. Rod had always delivered colloquialisms in song well.
A lot of heavy hitters were involved in this album. Mike Chapman of ChinnChap cowrote Love Touch and Bob Ezrin produced the rest. There are a couple good songs on here and Rod can always sing great. He does a dramatic rendition of In My Life with strings. The arrangement is a little heavy handed, but a great song done by a great singer.
