Reseña de álbum

As many fans who have more than a cursory knowledge of Denny Laine's non-Wings career could tell you from a glance at the track listings, this is not the ultimate Denny Laine collection. Most crucially, it doesn't contain anything from his late-1960s just-post-Moody Blues singles (or the radio sessions and unreleased material he did at that time), which — particularly the singles "Say You Don't Mind" and "Catherine Wheel" — were the best, most interesting solo releases he made. Even if you're discounting his slim non-Moody Blues 1960s output, this has nothing from his 1977 album Holly Days, or from his admittedly little-heeded 1990s releases. Instead this takes 20 songs from his 1980s releases, concentrating most heavily on his 1980 album Japanese Tears. What we're left with is middling, journeyman British mainstream rock, albeit by a pretty good singer with a high range, unfortunately one that deteriorated with time. Paul McCartney fans might be interested in "Japanese Tears" itself, one of the strongest tracks for what it's worth, and inspired by the canceled Japanese Wings tour (after McCartney was briefly jailed for carrying marijuana). Also, they might want to hear "Weep for Love," on which Paul and Linda McCartney played, and "Send Me the Heart," a Laine-McCartney composition, on which Paul McCartney appeared. The Japanese Tears cuts are moderately engaging in a way not too far removed from McCartney's straightforward pop/rock. But Laine loses the plot on subsequent efforts that make heavier use of synth rock (with some guest appearances by Rick Wakeman), hard rock, and soul ("Street" has guest vocals by journeywoman soul rocker Maggie Bell). It's an indictment of the disc that two of the best cuts, "Go Now" and "Say You Don't Mind," are remakes of songs that Laine sang better in the 1960s. Overall, it leaves the impression of a guy with some talent who's not coming close to drawing out his own potential, but then that was the story of Laine's whole post-Moody Blues career.

For a few months at the height of the British invasion, Denny Laine was one of the most recognizable voices on the entire British music scene. As the lead singer on the Moody Blues' recording of "Go Now" — a worldwide multi-million seller — he stood out in a large pack, and did so splendidly. His soulful, agonized lead vocal performance, coupled with Mike Pinder's chiming piano, proved irresistable on the radio. Within a year, however, the band fell by the wayside. Denny Laine was born...
