Curt Boetcher - There's An Innocent Face 1972 (2002) Flac


A strange release from the much-loved producer and composer which sees him finding a place that mixes up varying degrees of soft rock, country-pop, and doo wop into a fine, if a bit uneven, listen. The best track on the album is "I Love You More Each Day," with its folk strumming and '70s melodic pop approach. Unsurprisingly, this song is one of the three tracks Boettcher is listed as actually having written on the album. To be sure, there is no shortage of the multi-layered harmonies Boettcher is renowned for. The strongest aspects of the record involve his distinctly sweet vocal approach and the thick harmonies. Other tracks, like "Such a Lady," focus on mid-tempo country-rock. Another track manages to briefly segue into Frankie Lymon's "Why Do Fools Fall in Love." Gary Usher is given an executive producer credit on the album and the musicianship is top-notch due to key studio players like Red Rhodes helping out. The adherence to country-rock and early-'70s AOR-type ballads might scare away some fans who know him mostly for his light psychedelia, but certainly for the diligent there are some fine songs to be found on this release.

To write the artist's name with only one ''T'' in Boetcher is no mistake, it is written on the cover in this way. This is really a very good Curt Boettcher album (i know i'm a big fan...) from 1972. It is not sixties pop psychedelia, but maybe this is one reason why you (and me) still better can see how good this guy really as a musician were. Great songs (three) by Boettcher and an great interpreter of an very american sounding album. Wufferton Frog is real funny.
A really good album but like i said(and the reviewer) this is no sixties Boettcher style.
Have fun
