When Marty Balin went solo from Jefferson Starship he expanded on the style he had established for himself in the Jefferson Starship.. His first two solo albums "Balin" and "Lucky" have finally been reissued with the correct versions (the previous CD issue of "Balin" had the single version of "Hearts"--this reissue has the correct full length album version).

First the mastering-- Andrew Thompson's remaster uses some mild compression so this version is a bit louder than the previous release (and the vinyl) but only a bit. If you're sensitive to compression, this might not be the release for you. If you're not, then this will sound fine to you. The mastering by Thompson is certainly fuller with better bass and better midrange than the previous edition on the American Beat CD.

There aren't any bonus tracks although we do get both "Balin" and "Lucky" combined on the same CD.

"Lucky", to the best of my knowledge, hasn't been released on CD before. Although "Lucky" didn't do as well on the charts as "Balin", it's as good an album (in my humble opinion)and deserved to be a bigger hit than it was. Balin's soaring bluesy tenor carries even the weaker tracks on both albums while the playing is better the musicians (again, in my opinion) compared to the playing on "Balin" but it's also a bit slicker as well.

My only complaint about both albums at the time and even today is that Balin, a marvelous songwriter, only pens one song on each album. Why Marty elected to perform songs by others rather than co-write more material, I'm not sure.

As with all of BGO's reissues this has excellent liner notes by John Tobler. Tobler gives us a complete overview of Balin's career not just his solo career.

I've been waiting for "Lucky" to be released for at least 8 years now. I even pleaded with people at Capitol Records and Collector's Choice to put it out (to no avail). Even Marty couldn't get it released. I spoke with him about it after a gig and he told me the people running Capitol probably didn't even know who he is!

At any rate, this is an excellent record. "Do It For Love" is one of Marty's best efforts...it has that classic Balin sound. About as good as it gets if you like Marty (and I do)...

This is some great Marty Balin here! The song Hearts is one of the most beautiful love songs ever written and it is the full length album version clocking in at 4:32! The songs are a good mix of rockers and some great love ballads. Marty has such a unique voice and these 19 songs really deliver big time! My favorites are Hearts,Atlanta Lady,Do It For Love, and Palm Of Your Hand. This is a BGO release,and the digital remaster sounds really nice!! This is a release of Balin and Lucky, 2 releases on 1 cd! This is a real no-brainer, if you loved the vocals of Marty Balin in Jefferson Airplane or Jefferson Starship then you must buy this fantastic cd. Buy it now before it goes out of print!!
