Album Review

After a nominal success with the album I'm Easy (1975) — which contained a remake of his Oscar-winning title track — Keith Carradine (guitar/vocals) was tapped for a follow-up. That effort, Lost & Found (1978), is notably more organic and has less of a slick and overly produced feel. Another prominent difference is the infusion of cover material, such as the affective reading of Tom Waits' "San Diego Serenade" and a mid-tempo folksy version of the Beatles' "Rain." The latter truly stands out for its distinct, free-flowing acoustic guitar lead. Of lesser appeal is the opening remake of the Fleetwoods' "Mr. Blue," as it somewhat labors under Brooks Arthur's plodding arrangement. Among Carradine's originals of note are the introspective and whimsically nostalgic "Smile Again, Laugh Again," or the thoroughly funky and freewheelin' "Chance Blues," which is marked by some loose and limber contributions from Jim Horn (saxophone). Arguably the best is the earthy ballad "Homeless Eyes," which was inspired by E. L. Doctorow's novel The Book of Daniel — according to James Ritz's liner notes essay in the CD release of Lost & Found and I'm Easy onto a single CD. Once again, the top-shelf musicians who accompany Carradine provide ample support under the direction of the aforementioned Brooks Arthur, whose work with Janis Ian, Tim Hardin, and Van Morrison yielded some of the best engineered recordings of the 1970s. Other featured instrumentalists are Jim Keltner (drums), Ray Neapolitan (bass), and Steve Porcaro (synthesizer). Upon release, Lost & Found quickly disappeared into relative obscurity and Carradine returned to acting; however, his vocal prowess was assuredly beneficial in garnering him a Tony nomination for his landmark title role in the Will Rogers Follies during the 1990s. As alluded to above, Collectors' Choice Music has reissued both of Carradine's mid-'70s long-players, Lost & Found and I'm Easy, onto a single compact disc, making them available after several decades out of print.


Genre: Rock

After winning an Academy Award for his original composition "I'm Easy," actor Keith Carradine embarked on a short-lived singing career. Born August 8, 1949, in San Mateo, CA (the son of actor John Carradine), Carradine played guitar in a bluegrass band at age 14, and began acting in school plays around the same time. He studied theater at Colorado State University, but dropped out after a semester and returned to the Los Angeles area, where he successfully auditioned for a role in the Broadway cast...
