Hamish Stuart was one of the dominant members of theJazz-Funk-Soul Average White Band, a group made of Irishmen and Scots, who had a contagious, soulful and danceable music in the seventies ("Pick up the pieces" went to number 1 in the U.S.A.). The truth is AWB hasn't done much lately apart from touring from time to time and having its members releasing alternative projects (see for instance Hamish's Easy Pieces project, 1988). We now have Hamish's new delivery with an album I bought as soon as I knew it was available. The cd offers good and average things.
On the negative side, some tracks are a bit too repetitive ("It is what it is", "New kind of fool"), a bit too lengthy (most songs are well over 5 minutes, and "La la land" gives the impression it is over ten minutes). Also, it seems at times there is a lack of consistency because of the different directions the album takes : blues, acidjazz on the opening track, soul, folk ("Same old moon" sounds more like a James Taylor song).
On the good side, the three strong and energic intro-bridge-outro tracks ("Sooner""Or""Later"), a beautiful ballad ("Reach you"), the nice horn section on "I still care for you", or "Midnight rush", the perfect example of what I would have liked to hear more on this album. Strangely enough, the longest track ("Making it up") doesn't seem that long, probably because it has enough different sequences and an agressive sax, which in this case makes it a good song. The closing song (written by George Clinton) gives a nice gospel touch to the album.
So, if you are a collector or big fan of the AWB, although it is not as good as their best albums, you will want to have this CD. If not, you can always stick to tracks 1,2,4,7,8,12 and 13 and enjoy it.

I highly recommend this CD!! Hamish Stuart was one of the founding members of the Average White Band and his signature vocals and writing were always what made me a die-hard fan. One listen to either "A Love of My Own" or "Cloudy" from the AWB songbook should confirm Hamish was a force to be reckoned with. This CD has a lot to offer and to blow it off as just for fans of AWB does it an injustice. This is a great classic R&B recording with some very strong material and an outstanding band. My favorites Include, La-La Land, Sooner or Later, and The Same Old Moon. The recording has a very "live in studio" vibe and tunes are allowed to groove and for solos to develop making it even more appealing to me. The lyrics are also insightful and haunting, not the bump and grind fodder of today. Wish Hamish would come out of retirement!!

Sometimes the best CDs are the ones you don't know what to expect. This one blew me away! Smooooooooth! with lots of soul. Good Lyrics too. There are some groovin' numbers ("It Is What It Is", "Care For You", "La La Land", "Midnight Rush") Terrific Jazz numbers ("Makin' It Up, I Don't Want to be a Rock") My suggestion is to buy this CD and a good bottle of wine, sit in the sun and get ready to smile! ....and if you're in the mood to slow dance, the combo: "New Kind of Fool", "Same Old Moon" is perfect. If you're a fan of R&B, Soul or Jazz, you should give this one a listen. You'll love it!

The name came back from his time with AWB. And the first headphone listen was toetappin' good! Very good grooves-particularly on "Makin' It Up" and "Midnight Rush". The band is very good and the easy funk stirred up by two guitars and a tight rhythm section is great. Straight ahead soul!

You gottal love Hamish Stuart and there are a couple of gems on this album but there are a couple of duds too. I happen to be a big fan of Mr. Stuart from AWB, Paul McCarthy on through today and The Sideguys...
