Album Review

On his eponymous debut for Asylum, Terence Boylan gave the label everything it could possibly have wanted from one of its artists in 1977: confessional singer-songwriter ballads, slick Steely Dan-style L.A. jazz-pop, Eagle harmonies, and a bevy of L.A. session heavyweights. Boylan doesn't really offer anything particularly new here, but he is capable of writing tight, catchy, thoughtful California pop. Lyrically, he covers much of your basic singer-songwriter territory (love lost, coming of age, reflection), as well as tales of life in the tropics and even a song about a witch. Boylan may not quite be in the same class as the cream of Asylum's 1970s crop (Jackson Browne, the Eagles, Joni Mitchell), but Terence Boylan stands up well next to most records of its ilk.

Customer Reviews

Acoustic at its best...

Lyrical, melodic, memorable.... encompasses all that the 70's had to offer in the realm of soft rock. Boylan was up to the task of keeping with the likes the Eagles, Jackson Brown and others.... only the issue of longevity kept him from a place on the acoustic podium. This is his best of his two albums.

Great 70's record

I somehow found this album when it was released. I still listen to it all the time because the music is timeless.

Terence Boylan was producer John Boylan's brother. Every song is good and some are great such as Hey Papa, Where Are You Hiding?, Shame.

He has the best L.A. studio musicians backing him plus sublime harmonies supplied by Timothy B. Schmidt.

They even made an appearance on local radio station WBNY, performing "Playing Hard to Get," a song that Boylan had written at age 11. While in his early teens, he'd made it to New York City and Greenwich Village, and managed to cross paths with Bob Dylan (before he was a recording star) and Ramblin' Jack...
