The Emitt Rhodes Recordings (1969 - 1973) (Box Set)

The Emitt Rhodes Recordings (1969 - 1973) by Emitt Rhodes
Released: Jul 2009
Label: Hip-O Select Retail (Mc)
A brilliant singer-songwriter, Emitt Rhodes has been described as a one-man Beatles -- only wealth and fame eluded him. This box set collects all four of Rhodes' official solo albums cut after he left his band the Merry-Go-Round. The young Rhodes recorded almost everything here by himself, with a gift for melancholy melodies and introspective lyrics -- as if Paul had never found domestic bliss with Linda. There's a lot for new listeners to discover, but there's hardly a bum track (standouts: "Love Will Stone You," "Someone Died," "Til the Day After," "The Man He Was," "Only Lovers Decide").
