Editorial Reviews

This Beat Goes On release combines two of Bobby Goldsboro's United Artists LPs, most popular album (hooked around and named for his biggest hit) and his last one for the label, on one CD. Goldsboro's rendition of Bobby Russell's "Honey" tends to overwhelm anything with which it is juxtaposed, but he made a valiant effort to vary his sound on the album built around it -- thus, we get spritely, upbeat pop numbers like "Pardon Me Miss" and string-laden ballads like "Why Don't You Believe Me" (where he could be Jim Reeves surrounded by the Anita Kerr Singers), along with Goldsboro's rendition of Russell's most successful song, "Little Green Apples"; and youthful pop/rock such as "Pledge of Love" and "Love Arrestor"; and his version of Jimmy Webb's "By the Time I Get to Phoenix." He did write five of the 11 songs there, however, and is able to hold his own reasonably well amid those better known composer names -- indeed, one of those songs, "With Pen in Hand," became his next-to-last hit for UA four years later. That said, however, the contents of Summer (The First Time) offer a bit more consistency of sound, perhaps because there was less pressure surrounding that album, in terms of balancing the presence of a three-million-selling single, and that five years on it was also clear what the marketplace wanted from Goldsboro. The production and audio quality on the CD are first-rate throughout, and the annotation by Arthur Davis gives a good account of Goldsboro's career and the circumstances behind each album, albeit from a U.K. perspective, as this was the marketplace at which this CD was principally aimed. (Note: This was one of a group of CDs that were, at one point, issued as CD-Rs by Beat Goes On; those who buy it sealed and don't want a CD-R can contact the label by e-mail and arrange an exchange by mail). ~ Bruce Eder, All Music Guide

'With pen in hand','Pardon me Miss','Pledge of love',By the time
l get to Phonex, 'The things that make a woman a woman', 'Marlena','Sing me a smile','She',Spread my wings 'n fly',
'Killing me softly with her song', all of which are good songs then add 'Honey', 'He's part of us' and 'The L&N don't stop here anymore', which are three fine classics and you have his finest
CD to date bringing home the reality that Goldsboro at his best
is a fine maestro interpreter of song.
Get this album it is well worth having in your collection!

This was the first Bobby Goldsboro album I ever owned. I was 16 years old when it was released for "the first time" and I have been a Goldsboro fan ever since. I have been trying to find the "Summer, the first time" album for a long long time. When I saw it was available again...I couldn't order it fast enough. My wife and I have been blessed with six children. I started singing "If'n I was God" to each one, as the Lord sent them. I will be singing to my grand children soon. There are truly...just a handful of GREAT singer/songwriters and Bobby Goldsboro is one of the BEST!

The sound quality is generally good on this disc, but BGO has sourced this from vinyl (listen at 17 seconds into With Pen In Hand). That's unfortunate.

When I first heard the song "The L&N Don't Stop Here Anymore" and that stop was Clarksville TN and Bobby Goldsboro sang the song, I received conformation that Bobby Goldsboro did write the song and it was about the Clarksville station. In my search for the song I found it on the Honey/Summer album. The train station sung about fell into disrepair but has since been restored and the song and some of it's history will be presented to the historic society at a future meeting.

I grew up listening to this music and was longing to hear these songs again. I'm not disappointed in the least, they all sound just like I remembered them. Bobby's voice is crystal clear and smooth. I would recommend this CD to anyone who enjoys his music.
