I hear Wooden Woman and Heated Love as one long song - they flow together so perfectly. And then Love Me Again starts... It's a brilliant sequence of songs on a great record. I even listen to most of side one
And speaking of Heated Love, The instrumental breaks on that track are remarkable. Ed's guitars, the glissando thing (is that a harp?). Pretty magical.
I agree Love Me Again should have been a single. Or Wooden Woman & Heated Love. I'm just grateful that you guys persevered and made this great music despite the forces working against you. Thank you again!
: Hi Sean...
: Love Me Again was written by Lee Freeman and
: Ed King - sung by Lee Freeman - It was one
: of two songs written by them on our third
: album. I loved them both as well as Lee
: Freeman's Wooden Woman. The other song is A
: Million Smiles Away...a gem too!
: Ed did some great double tracked guitar work
: on all three songs.
: Love Me Again has an obvious influence from
: our having just done two Beach Boy's tours
: with The Buffalo Springfield. Ed captured
: that magic that happens between Stephen
: Stills and Neil Young playing off each
: Lee Freeman sang lead on all three of those
: songs. Love Me Again had that Righteous
: Brothers influence.
: The reason it's dubbed a lost gem is because
: the manager, producer and record company
: were hell bent on releasing the more lush,
: commercial and middle of the road stuff as
: singles for radio airplay, such as Barefoot
: in Baltimore and Sea Shell...the latter of
: which was written by John Carter and Tim
: Gilbert who wrote the lyrics to Incense and
: These kinds of mistakes distanced the SAC
: from our core audience.
: The band had no control of the situation.
: The best songs on the third album were the
: ones the band wrote. There were outside
: songs that we were forced to play and sing
: along with a string and brass section
: conducted by George Tipton.
: Completely out of character for the SAC.
: Barefoot got into the Billboard Top 100 but
: I think Love Me Again or A Million Smiles
: Away would have fared better. Just sayin...
: --Previous Message--
: i have been trying to figure out who sang on
: Love Me Again. It's been a favorite of mine
: for years. All-music calls it a "lost
: masterpiece". Aside from that there's
: not much info about it. I would love to know
: more about it.
