Performer Notes
  • Solo performer: Emitt Rhodes (vocals, various instruments).
  • EMITT RHODES was the kind of album that Beatles fans hoped that Paul McCartney would issue after leaving the Beatles in April 1970. Unlike McCartney's charming--though somewhat patchy--solo debut, EMITT RHODES is a fully realized pop masterpiece. Rhodes, who was only 22 when he recorded this album, plays every instrument on all 12 tracks, masterfully layering piano, guitar, bass, vocal, and drum tracks to create a rich, full sound that provides the perfect accompaniment to his tuneful pop confections. From the sleek pop smarts of "With My Face on the Floor" to the jaunty "She's Such a Beauty," a sunny pop number that evokes McCartney's "Martha My Dear," every song on this album could have easily found a place on AM Top-40 radio in the summer of 1970. Although EMITT RHODES ultimately managed to reach the Top 30, it is still surprising that this wonderful album didn't transform the photogenic young Rhodes into a full-fledged pop superstar. Songs like "Fresh as a Daisy" and "Live Till You Die" are pure pop gems that are will be treasured by any fan of melodic pop/rock.

Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (2/18/71, p.52) - "...anyone who likes this type of music...lightweight melodic rock, will find the album a delight....There is more-than-fortuitous resemblance on some songs to Paul McCartney, whom it's always nice to have among your influences..."

Alternative Press (2/96, p.62) - "...a man who wrote pop songs as vibrant as anything Alex Chilton ever penned for Big Star....[this album is] one of those true pop gems..."
