Album Review

Originally issued in 1973 on the Three Brothers label as Lou Christie, this is Christie's first dabble into doing something that could get play on a country radio station. The big hit, of course, was the title tune, later a soundtrack mainstay of Rain Man, Dutch, A Home of Our Own, and cable TV's Travel Channel. But Christie's interpretations of Tony Romeo's original material — in addition to producing and arranging everything, eight of the 14 tunes on here are Romeo's, who also wrote "I'm Gonna Make You Mine" for Christie — bring spark to songs like "Saddle the Wind," "Blue Canadian Rocky Dream," "Sunbeam," and "Morning Rider." In addition to the ten original album sides, bonus tracks (all previously unreleased) include Christie and longtime collaborator Twyla Herbert's "Little Bit of God," "Wheel of Fortune," and a pair of tunes written by Romeo, "Two Little Clouds Passing By" and "There'll Never Be (A We Like You and Me)." Another hidden gem in the highly underrated career of Lou Christie.
