Finding His Voice

I have very mixed feelings about this CD. The musical support provided by Lowell George, other membrs of Little Feat and the Meters are simply stunning. The keyboard parts stand out very much and the drumming is very funky. The best song by far is the title track. What a cool groove.

Outside is another strong track. Whereas I like Sailing Shoes, it just does not compare to the Little Feat version. It all starts with the vocals. Robert Palmer just can not compare to Lowell George on this track.

AS a matter of fact, Robert Palmers vocals are erratic on this CD. He's very good on the title track, Outside and decent on a couple of others. However, that last song, Throught It All With You, Mr.Palmer just sounds like he is grunting and does not rise above the solid backing unit.

Also many of the songs do not have solid hooks. Robert Palmer would go on to record more solid hook driven songs later in his career. On this CD, it is very hit and miss.

Basically the style is good but the substance is not there full time yet.
