Album Review

Singer Rex Smith came to the fame as the heartthrob lead of the 1979 NBC-TV movie Sooner or Later. His same-named LP is basically a soundtrack album featuring the pop/rock songs he performed in the movie. The Bobby Hart/Stephen Lawrence ballad "You Take My Breath Away" was issued as a single. It went gold, reaching number ten on the pop charts in the summer of 1979. It can be found on Rhino's Super Hits of the '70s: Have a Nice Day, Vol. 22. Other highlights were "Better Than It's Ever Been Before," "Simply Jessie," and "Never Gonna Give You Up." Smith with Rachel Sweet had a 1981 Top 32 pop hit with a duet cover of the Buzz Cason/Mac Gayden song "Everlasting Love" (Soft Love, Vol. 5,Hot Duets). After hosting a season of Solid Gold with Marilyn McCoo, Smith returned to Broadway (The Pirates of Penzance [Original Broadway Cast] [CD]).

Well this is ok for now.. Simply Jessie & You Take My Breath Away are his signature wonderful songs.. but where is Forever & Let's Take a Memory???

I'm a 6th grader all over again

This totaly takes me back to 6th grade. I remember waiting for hours in line at Tower Records in Honolulu to get Rex Smith's autograph. "Simply Jessie" made me want to take guitar lessons! This will beat my tape casette of the songs that I made by holding the recorder next to the tv! Awesome!!

love this album

I love listening to rex smith, I waited a long time for i-tunes to add him, it took so long I found his cd online and already added it to my music list, I also wish he had made more albums, I have also bought this movie on vhs and dvd and watched it too many times to count, if you dont already have his songs than it is a good buy! ya rex

Rex Smith is perhaps best known as a late '70s/early '80s pin-up idol, who issued several albums for Columbia Records. But besides his recording career, Smith has acted in countless TV shows and Broadway musicals over the years. Born on September 19, 1955 in Jacksonville, Florida, Smith caught his big break in 1978, when he landed the role of Danny Zuko with the Broadway production of Grease, which led to the launch of a recording career soon after. The soundtrack to a 1979 TV movie he starred in,...
