Patti's best since 1 and the 9...!
After getting an iTunes alert to new Patti Rothberg material, I thought I was dreaming...but instead, it's a dream come true! I wasn't too into Candelabra, but I got this soundtrack anyway. Without a doubt it's her best work since the amazing 1 and the 9 album. I truly hope this is a sign that she's back to making the great music we loved her for! Patti fans listen up!
We hate to disappoint you but...
...this album is NOT a "Patti Rothberg" album per se, and it really should not come up in a search as a Patti Rothberg album. This album is a movie soundtrack for which Patti was hired to provide vocals...that's all. She didn't write anything, she didn't play anything and she didn't have anything to do with the production of the music. She was simply a hired session singer. Patti's new album "Double Standards" was just released and fans of Patti should not confuse this for her new record, which by the way happens to be amazing.
Patti Rothberg's Gentler Side
While this is not a Patti Rothberg album - it is the soundtrack for a still-unreleased movie - it features Patti's vocals on seven of the ten tracks, on material that is very suitable to her style. In fact, some of these songs rank among her best vocal efforts. "Beach," "After All We've Been Through," "Tomorrow Never Comes," and "City Of Angels" show the softer, gentler side of Patti's persona, which has been somewhat overshadowed since "Between The 1 & The 9" by her tendency to rock. For fans of that aspect, there are "Thank You God for T.V." and "Marilyn," and "Your Fifteen Minutes Are Over" recalls the country-rock of The Rolling Stones' "Dead Flowers." These three also have some humorous lyrics, the sardonic approach often associated with Patti's songs - but bear in mind that she didn't write any of these songs; they are all credited to Michael Slifka, a producer of the movie. The other three songs on the album pale in comparison, but are still worth listening to. "If It's Not One Thing" is a snappy number that resembles Squeeze, "Last Day on Earth" sounds a bit like latter-day Pink Floyd or Dave Gilmour, and "No Money No Honey" has an upbeat reggae feel, and may include Patti in the backing vocals. But the strength of this album are Patti Rothberg's achingly poignant vocals on the slower songs, particularly the wistful "Tomorrow Never Comes," the yearning "Beach," with its insistent bongo-driven singalong chorus, and the reflective "After All We've Been Through." Please note: this last song is NOT available on CD - "Runaway Girl," sung by a male singer, is in its place - and is available only via download. But that's why you're here anyway, right?
