Prime Cuts: Crazy in Love, Just to Spend One Night with You, Brass and Batons

Carnes' husky alto, sometimes likened to a female Rod Stewart, is one of the most distinctive voices in music. Despite having carved for herself a laudable career in pop music including the Grammy awarded hit "Bette Davies' Eyes," Carnes has always had a foot in country music. In fact, she's the creator of such country greats such as Kenny Rogers and Ronnie Milsap's number 1 "Make No Mistake (She's Mine)," Vince Gill and Reba McEntire's career defining "Heart Won't Lie" and more recently Tim McGraw's plaintive ballad "You Don't Love Me Anymore." Released in 1988, with Jimmy Bowen and Carnes herself on the helm, "View from the House," finds Carnes returning to her country roots. Surrounded by the sound created by those delightful instruments long associated with the traditional country mores of fiddles, mandolin, fiddles and honky tonk piano, these 10 songs embraces a down home warmth.

Like music transposed from a western firm is the intro of "Just to Spend the Night With You" which itself is a work of art. While John Prine's poetic depiction of loneliness in "Speed of the Sound of Loneliness" is made even more stark with Carnes' gravel-voiced nuances. However, for fans who have had smitten by the more aggressive rock side of Carnes (a la her hits "More Love" and "Invisible Hands"), the Troy Seals co-penned "Heartbreak Radio" is a scorcher boasting some napalm guitars. Similarly, on the old Johnny Otis chestnut "Willie and the Hand Jive" Carnes indulges in some good old time New Orleans-blues drenched rock.

However, it's the ballads that are the real treats: most excellent is "Brass and Batons.

This is Kim Carnes's last album of 100% original songs. After this one, it's only been re-issues and compilations.
Carnes began singing country and "blue-eyed soul" in the early 1970s on the A&M label. She switched to EMI with 1979's ST. VINCENT'S COURT album, then hit it big with 1981's "Bette Davis Eyes" (released by EMI on the MISTAKEN IDENTITY album.) From then on, Carnes adopted a harder, rock/pop/dance image, the sort of MTV music heard on TV's MIAMI VICE.
VIEW FROM THE HOUSE was Carnes's first (and last) album for MCA, released in 1988. In it, Carnes returns to her earlier country roots. She and her husband Davo wrote Kenny Roger's GIDEON album, so Carnes is familiar with country music, although this great album is still tinged (just a bit) with her early 1980s pop/rock/dance music sound. A unique blend of the Kim Carnes "sound."

This is perhaps my favoirte Kim Carnes CD, although she has 2 old records that are not on cd that I would rate higher. There is a variety of musical genres on here, not just piano bar tunes. Like her very first few recordings in the 70's and well before the Betty Davis Eyes craze, she wrote and sang very touching, sometimes powerful, sometimes tender songs. My favorites are Brass and Batons, If You Don't Want My Love, Speed of the Sound of Loneliness, and Crimes of the heart. Out of curiosity, I checked out a couple of arrangements of the John Prine/Phil Spector "If You Don't Want My Love" and was pretty much amazed at how much more melodic and enhanced Kim's arrangement is. Of course with her voice easily conveying angst, it is perfect for this cut. Perhaps my favorite cut on this album is "Crimes of the Heart" by Kim Carnes and Donna Weiss, who did several songs on this album. It was produced by Kim, Jimmy Bowen and Bill Cuomo, which is the only song with this production crew. Overall, if you liked the album Sailin', you'll probably like this, too.

I remember this CD from the 90's, lost it in a move or something. Was glad to find a copy again as some the songs aren't found anywhere else.
