3 x Emitt Rhodes

Postby fange » 21 Nov 2017, 14:46

What are your 3 favourite Emitt Rhodes songs?

These might be mine today -

'Really Wanted You'

'Come Ride, Come Ride'

'Fresh As A Daisy'

What do you think about his stuff in general, including his pre-solo bands like The Merry-Go-Round?

To me he always sounded like a better Macartney.

Like him very much.... Come Ride, Come Ride is my favourite song of his - the voice, the tune, the strings - everything is perfect.

"With my Face on the Floor" is definitely up there. Also, "Live" with the Merry-Go-Round and "Time Will Show the Wiser."
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

"Live" is pretty huge for me.

I bought both of his solo records back in the 90s when they were still dollar records - he's such an unabashed disciple of McCartney, and makes no bones about it.
