Editorial Reviews

Those in the know call this 1975 LP the "Silver" album-the one that kicked off their extremely fruitful decade with RCA. A #17 hit, this album includes their #4 smash Sara Smile ; this remastered reissue adds two previously unreleased bonus tracks (demos of Ice and What's Important to Me ) to the original release!

Format: Audio CD
All too often in the mid 70's there was so much excellent and well crafted soul,funk and jazz inspired music that was delivered to pop radio as "soft rock" or "singer-songwriter pop". People like Todd Rundgren,Edgar Winter,Gino Vannelli and to a lesser extent Laura Nyro since she never charted on her on own all kind of fell into this world at one time or another along with many others. One duo decided that after three mildly unfocused albums on Atlantic that they would adopt the idea of soul-pop for it's own sake. They were Philledelphia's own Daryl Hall and John Oates and this self titled debut album for RCA set the pattern for the sound they would continue to refine and develope for the next decade. Of course the silver embossed,airbrushed androgony of the album cover was a big attention getter so,because so many people do tend to look at an album cover and make guesses based on that about the music within. Needless to say this isn't a glam rock sounding project as the cover might mislead you stereotypically. For the most part the album is a cleanly produced,romantic Philly soul style production with plenty of smooth,bluesy guitar riffing and on many of the songs some great,at times very funky Fender Rhodes work. "Camellia" and "Alone Too Long" are two uptempo pop/funk that could also work as radio friendly pop/rock too. Both are sung by John Oates whose mildly untutored,scaling low tenor tremmelo takes a bit of getting used to if your not used to it but it's because of that quality they sound somewhat different the usual Hall & Oates fare.Read more ›

Although it only included one big Hall & Oates hit (Sara Smile), the rest of the album is very strong and the added bonus tracks make it extra special. It is my personal favorite Hall & Oates album of all time.

Great album. Most of the tracks are absolute classics. "Camelia", "Sara Smile", "Alone Too Long", "Out Of Me, Out Of You", are clear examples of the superb songwriting and vocals that H&O is known for. This album back in 74 also wore out the needle on my turntable. Worth having.

Coming right after their acrimonious split from Atlantic Records and the disastrously bad Todd Rundgren album "War Babies", Hall & Oates start out their RCA career with an excellent album; one that uncharacteristically for them doesn't have a single weak track. Every track is a soul classic and the musicianship is first class as well. The guitar work of Chris Bond and the excellent jazz-drumming work of Jim Gordon really stand out. Although "Sara Smile" is the track that frequently makes the best of compilations from this album, it's actually not among the stronger tracks. My favourite, "It Doesn't Matter Anymore" has everything you'd ever want in a soul song and speaks to me the most. Other stand out tracks are "Soldering", "Grounds For Separation", "Nothing At All" heck looks like I'm going to name the whole album so you get the idea just how great this album is. This version has been very well remastered and so has never sounded as good and the mini-lp sleeve packaging is a great work of art which comes with lyrics in both English and Japanese as well as the 2 bonus tracks which are also quite good. Highly recommended for soul lovers and Hall & Oates fans everywhere.

Despite some minor success with their first three albums on Atlantic (most notably "Abandoned Luncheonette"), this was the album that found Daryl Hall and John Oates breaking through. "Sara Smile" became the duo's first major hit, enough so that "She's Gone" to re-chart and go top ten two years after it was first released. They had honed their songwriting to a new found tightness, and Hall's soulful voice become was helping to carry the songs.

The merger was not quite perfect; while the soul influence is obvious, the production is dated. Strings have that super lush Philly-seventies sound, there's a faux-reggae number ("Soldering") and some overdone horn/orchestral stuff. (We won't even start on the androgynous cover and the original nude inner-sleeve pics...) The songs overcome the shortcomings, like "Grounds For Separation" and "Out of Me Out of You." The upbeat "Gino (The Manager Song)" and John Oates' occasional huskier voice provide contrast. As a snapshot of a career at the beginning of its trajectory, this album still stands up well.

This was the first album that I ever purchased by Hall & Oates, opting for the vinyl album over the 8-track tape back in 1975. Strange but true. Most shops stocked both formats in those years, so that was a difficult choice to make for a teenager on a budget! But what wasn't difficult to do was enjoying this album. Songs with hooks and those trademark sweet harmonies. It still remains my very favorite of the duo's many excellent albums.

Although "Sara Smile" was the one big hit off this album, there were plenty of other truly great songs, some of which deserved to be huge hits ("Camellia" and "Alone Too Long" being two of the most obvious choices). As other reviewers have remarked, this is a remarkably consistent album; not a dud tune to be found. Of the two bonus songs that are included on this CD reissue I really like "What's Important To Me." It's labeled a "demo" but it sound perfectly finished to my ears. More sweet icing on an already delicious musical cake!
