Sealed 1973 Original With Promo Sticker On Front Jacket Under Shrink And Bio Under Rear Shrink. Almost Certainly A White Label Promo. “Alan O'Day's Caress Me Pretty Music Is An Excellent, Heartfelt Album From A Singer/Songwriter Best Known For Three Frivolous Records Which Were Huge Hits: "Rock & Roll Heaven," The Fourth Biggest Chart Climber For The Righteous Brothers; A Number One Hit For Helen Reddy, "Angie Baby"; And O'Day's Only Solo Smash, The Ridiculous "Undercover Angel," Which Also Hit Number One. It's Hard To Conceive That The Writer Of Those Songs Could Create A Work Of Sheer Beauty That Is This Earlier Recording From 1973. The Title Track Sounds Like Leo Sayer's "The Show Must Go On" And Was Recorded By David Clayton-Thomas, A Worthwhile Melody For The Blood, Sweat & Tears Singer To Find. O'Day Covers A Variety Of Styles, Though The Centerpiece Is "Heavy Church," A Magnificent Song Which Three Dog Night Covered On Their Monster Album Naturally. Produced By Dallas Taylor, The Tune Is An Excursion Into Psychedelia And Soul Searching, A Brilliant, Exquisite Melody Combining All Sorts Of Musical Elements Which Make It As Essential As Three Dog Night's Rendition, Though Different Enough To Stand On Its Own. "Crucifixtion 2000 A.D." Is A Religious Song Of Regret, Lamenting That 20 Decades After We've Lost The Savior, People Haven't Changed One Bit, And That He's Needed More Than Ever. There's More Than A Few Touches Of Religion Here: "Good Book" Seems To Poke Fun At It, But The Hook Is Solid As A Rock, Perhaps Redeeming The Songwriter From His Subtle Sacrilege. It's An Album Chock Full Of Hooks And Displays The Real Craftsmanship Missing From His Hits, Strong Lyrics, And A Variety Of Melodies. Though "Heavy Church" Stands Out As The Masterpiece, The Rest Of Caress Me Pretty Music Has Lots To Offer As Well. A Real Sleeper Worth Searching The Back Pages Of Goldmine Magazine For.” – Joe Viglione, All Music Guide
