Twenty One Good Reasons Import
Rock's most sure-handed journeyman, Paul Carrack is slowly working his way around to singing with every band in existence. And why not? He's had success with more than a few already, scoring hits with Ace ("How Long"), Squeeze ("Tempted"), Mike & the Mechanics ("Silent Running (On Dangerous Ground")), and as a duet partner with Carlene Carter ("Do Me Lover"). The Paul Carrack Collection combines those tracks (plus some others) with the cream of Carrack's solo work, including the hit "I Need You." Carrack is perhaps the most-heard, least-known vocalist in rock, though this set goes a long way toward righting that wrong. --Daniel Durchholz
This product contains an excellent collection of songs from a man who, by his own admission, "lives by the groove". There is no question that he follows his muse wherever it might take him because, after reviewing his long and varied career, you will notice that he has collaborated with several different groups (Ace, Squeeze, Mike & the Mechanics, etc.). Somehow he always manages to put his stamp on the final outcome, and things usually turn out well.
If we all "lived by the groove", the world could potentially be a better place. On the other hand, who would carry the mail or pick up the trash if we were all busy "groovin'"? Pop this into your disc player and form your own conclusions. Enjoy!
