1979 Original. Saw-Cut. Features Bud Shank, Tom Scott and More. "The Crystal Mansion Were A More Than Competent Pop Band That Got Lost In The Rock & Roll Shuffle. The Problem Is That There Wasn't A Format For Solid Adult Pop Music That Didn't Make It To Top 40 Prior To The Invention Of Aaa Radio. Tom Scott's Wonderful Sax Solos And Heavy Keyboards From Mike Boddicker And Steve Porcaro (For A Band That Boasts Three Keyboard Players To Begin With: David White, Sal Rota, And Johnny Caswell) Fail To Make This Great Ethereal Song "Hip" Enough For The Alternative Side Of The Dial. The Cover Of "Talk To Me (Talk To Me)," A 1963 Hit For Sunny & The Sunglows, Was A Smart Move. It Works, And Is The Closest Thing To A Possible Single Here. David White's "Lookin' For A Way To Say Goodbye" Is Very Effective, A Classy Contribution That Len Barry's Ups And Downs Album Absolutely Needed From David White Tricker When He Worked On That. Brooks Arthur Does A Commendable Job Of Bringing The Best Out Of This Group -- "I Hear Music" Resonates With Elegant, Borderline Blue-Eyed Soul And "Incomplete Love Song" Fades With Bud Shank's Smart Sax, But 20Th Century Was A No Man's Land In The '70S, Releasing Superior Product With Very Little Direction. "The Garden Of Love" Is Adult Bubblegum. For A Group With One Minor Hit Under Its Belt And More Than A Few Famous Friends, Breaking A Solid Song Like "Fiona" Was Nearly Impossible. Now If Elton John Had Covered It, That Would Be A Different Kettle Of Fish. They Were Strangers In A Strange Land Who Recorded This Dynamic And Worthwhile Effort." Joe Viglione, AMG.
