Mr Husky dives back, in this album, to his childhood (yes, around the summer months of 1969) and covers a bunch of his favourite songs from that era, ie, the tracks of his years.
While I can't really profess the same admiration (or reason) for including "Down On The Corner", or "I Can't Stop Loving You", the choices "Tracks Of My Tears", "Sunny" and "Lay Lady Lay" are nice. I was very impressed to see "Never My Love" in there. It's not a in instant classic that comes to mind, but it sure does come flooding back with those soft guitar licks, and the gradual crescendo of his voice in the song. That is probably the only real highlight of this album.
The single "She Knows Me" sounds more like his '80s efforts, but "Any Time At All" should have been scrapped, as should "Rock And Roll Music". I'm shocked there is a 'Deluxe' version of this album. Ugh. I'm a little lost. He can't do blue eyed soul, or much else in this album that is memorable, except "Never My Love".
Is this a contract filler? 3/10.
