Customer Reviews

Musically a great record

Not as popular as some of their earlier work but it holds its own musically. Windflowers has lush harmonies over a spoken word-type set of lyrics. Desert People for me is such a good feel good song, I love the line "...cause even the desert will bloom." Unborn child is what it is and very creative. The Story of Her Love has great lyrics and good music to support it. Rachel is a nice little song that tells a sweet little story. King of Nothing is so relevant even today for that guy who admires from afar (good trombone parts in the song). 29 Years from Texas is autobiographical and very much reminiscent of prior S&C songs with a sense of the new musical style of the 70's. Ledges is jazzy, very well produced and moving away from the vintage S&C sound early on. Big Mac is jazzy and catchy in its bridge leading into the chorus. A great record that is somewhat overlooked.

Great Album killed By Special Interests

This is a great album, distinguished by its title track, which drew the ire of certain pro-abortion groups who caused Warner Brothers to stop producing it. Classic S & C harmonies, story songs and arrangements mark this as a fine achievement. WB stopped distibuting it after a few years because "Unborn Child", a lpea for sparing a baby from abortion was deemed too moralistic by some. Madonna's trashy "Sex" book was distributed by WB, apparently money trumped "immorality". Anyway, as to the record's merits, Windflowers is a breezy S & C song, King Of Nothing was a popular single, and Unborn Child was also released as a single. Unborn Child's beautiful harmonies, soaring guitar solos and lovely tune were submerged by the pro-life/pro-abortion controversy. To listen to the album and appreciate its luxurious songs is to appreciate what great singers/song writers they were. Definitely a classic worth a listen.

Great Album!

I bought this album in 1974 as a follow-up to Diamond Girl. Unfortunately, in 1973 the Supreme Court decision on abortion clearly divided the country and this album got swept up in that debate. Both the music and lyrics on this album are superb! Anyone with a heart had to be touched by the artists love for humankind. Seals and Crofts clearly understood the heartbreak that a Mother faces. But, they expressed the humanity and respect for life that must be considered. After 40 years, this remains a groundbreaking work!

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s

One of the most successful soft rock acts of the 1970s, the duo of Jim Seals and Dash Crofts met while playing with singer Dean Beard in 1958. That year, Beard was invited to join the Champs (of "Tequila" fame), and Seals and Crofts tagged along, remaining with the group until 1965. The two then bounced from the Mushrooms to the Dawnbreakers before deciding to strike out on their own as a duo in 1969. Seals played guitar, saxophone, and fiddle, while Crofts handled drums, mandolin, keyboards, and...
