Emitt Rhodes
Daisy-Fresh from Hawthorne, California
(The Best of the Dunhill Years)
-
BRCD 001
Dunhill Records/Edsel Records UK 1998
-

This 23-track CD covers the three records he made for Dunhill in the early 1970s, including all of his self-titled debut solo release. Emitt Rhodes sounds eerily reminiscent of Paul McCartney, but his strong songwriting and the deeply emotional qualities he brings to his songs make him far more than a McCartney clone.

Most people are discovering Emitt just now, long after he faded into a footnote. Emitt should have been as big as any pop star on this planet, but it was not to be.

No, it's not. All tracks are in the ace file. Your download must be corrupt. Be sure to use the right unace tool. Some tools (like WinRar) will mess it up.
The file should be 91203KB.
