Rick Nelson: Intakes

Bud Scoppa, Phonograph Record, August 1977

BEFORE I RECEIVED a test pressing of the new Rick Nelson album, I was informed that this elpee marked a big change in direction for the always-likeable old pro. The disc I received supplied inarguable testimony to the above claim – it was horn-filled, disco-tempoed, and...to get right down to the core of it, there was no singing on the whole album.

Total word count of piece: 363
