That's a good story. I wonder how many recognise him these days?Super review. Really good stuff Rob! Don’t know this whole record, but “Check It Out” is my favo(u)rite of all his songs (along with “Scarecrow”). And I always liked him and thought him well-meaning.
Saw him at a restaurant in NYC about three years ago with my family. My wife — who has a true gift of recognizing celebrities in public — pointed to him and said “Know who that is?” I had no clue — I remember what he looked like 35 years ago — but she was right.
I''ll be interested to hear your thoughts on the album - being American (I think you are, right? Not just an ex-pat in Frisco?) I'd have thought you'd be more familiar with his works than many of my fellow-Brits, but it just goes to show.
Scarecrow is a superb album as well (including the song "Rain on the Scarecrow") and sits in my Top 20.
