Whole Oats

LP (Item 396411) Atlantic, 1972 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 10

The lesser-known first album from Hall & Oates – recorded for Atlantic in the early 70s, right before their mega-hit run for RCA! The feel here is looser and more homegrown than later on – a bit more rock than soul, thanks to arrangements by Whole Oats that almost have some of the phrasings you'd hear on the first album or two by Steely Dan. The songs themselves are a bit more personal, almost with a Todd Rundgren sort of fragileness – and although Arif Mardin handled the larger string and horn arrangements, the overall sound is less soulful and sweet, and more in a singer-songwriter sort of mode. Titles include "Waterwheel", "Fall In Philadelpha", "All Our Love", "Lazyman", "Goodnight & Goodmorning", "Southeast City Window", and "They Needed Each Other".

Greatest Hits
ABC, 1970s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
We've always considered Steely Dan one of the quintessential 70s "Album Oriented Rock" bands, in that all of there albums work so well as a whole, so the idea of a greatest hits collection doesn't exactly work for us. Still, taken out of context, these songs are still gems, and listening ... LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1974. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
A classic double live set from David Bowie – recorded during his years as The Thin White Duke (as you might guess from the cover!), but featuring a fair bit of material from the Ziggy Stardust years!

A really nice set from Ian Matthews – who cut his teeth a few years earlier with Fairport Convention – and gets a little help here from fellow Fairporters Sandy Denny and Richard Thompson.

Livingston Taylor
Capricorn/Atco, 1970. Very Good+
Livingston Taylor's not hiding his relation to brother James Taylor here – at least not in his style, which is strongly Taylor-like, but not nearly as filled with cliche! The songs are short, simple, and nicely personal – a bit folksy at moments, and at their best when sung with some ... LP, Vinyl record album
