Album Review

On their eighth outing, Russ Freeman and the Rippingtons turn in a typically eclectic outing, the lively, melodic Freeman tunes serving as staging areas for his electric and acoustic guitar excursions. The Whispers put in cameo appearances on background vocals on a couple of tracks, including covers of "Caravan of Love" and "Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now," and Freeman gives an updated arrangement to "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" while elaborating upon Eric Clapton's original lead work on the Beatles classic. The album's booklet contains trendy references to cyberspace and web sites, but it's nothing to worry about; the Rippingtons were always a fairly techy band, anyway.

Great CD

I finally found this CD my favorite is Hideaway what a great CD worth every penny.

One of my Favorite Rippingtons albums!!

This is one of my favorite Riooingtons albums released back in 1995 (But I got my copy of it 10 years later in 2005!). My Favorite songs off this album are "Urban Wanderer", "Key to the Forbidden City", "Hideaway" and "Cicada".

This is one of their finest!

During this period, he worked with Howard...
