Album Review

The title track is not to be confused with the Ritchie Cordell tune with which Tommy James & the Shondells hit the Top 20 in 1967; this Roger Atkins/ Helen Millercomposition was the theme to Bobby Sherman's short-lived television show of the same name, Getting Together. The team of producer Ward Sylvester and engineer Dick Bogert are back behind Sherman and they do a great job. Paul Williams' "Tired Soul" is a delightful slice of bubblegum gospel with Kenny Gamble/Leon Huff overtones. Despite the absence of Top 40 hits, Getting Together stands as an album that proves Sherman could have easily slipped into adult contemporary — and really should have. The Roger Cook/Roger Greenaway/Tony Macaulay song "Blame It on the Pony Express" is first rate; those three having contributed to many a pop hit, the Cook/Greenaway classic "You've Got Your Troubles" for the Fortunes just one example of their greatness. With contributions from Peter Allen, Carole Bayer Sager, Alan O'Day, and others, the Metromedia label really dropped the ball with this one. Geared toward Sherman's TV audience, the album has a circular cardboard wheel with the teen idol's photos fitting neatly into the TV cut out on the LP cover. It's a sophisticated work for middle-of-the-road adults in a package aimed at teenage girls. Getting Together should have been a rebirth for Sherman, but that's the music biz.
