Rare Earth – Grand Slam / 1978

Grand+Slam+Rare Earth

1 My Eyes Only
2 Save Me, Save Me
3 When a Man Loves a Woman
4 I Heard It Through the Grapevine
5 You Got My Love
6 I Wish It Would Rain
7 I Can Feel My Love Risin’ (From Future Shockand Beyond)
8 Stop Her on Sight (S.O.S.)
9 Mighty Good Love


It doesn’t take a genius to notice that this album emerged from the same sessions as the last effort Band Together. Same writers, producer etc. The idea of reforming the band seems to have a been a bit misguided. Whatever happened to the old Rare Earth spark and the writing and production talents of Tom Baird? Again, this isn’t a particularly bad album, it’s just plain average. The amount of session musicians and background session singers just smother what used to be a great band.
