This 1996 reissue marks the first time ALONG THE RED LEDGE has appeared on CD.
Hall & Oates: Daryl Hall, John Oates.
Reissue producer: Basil Marshall.
Originally released on RCA (2804).
All tracks have been digitally remastered.
This album continues the mix of Philly soul and hard rock Hall and Oates began to flirt with on BEAUTY ON A BACK STREET. Hall occasionally oversings here. On the attempted big ballad "Have I Been Away Too Long" he confuses melisma with yodeling (which is actually pretty funny, albeit unintentional). Elsewhere, however, the album is smart and tuneful, with "The Last Time"--a Phil Spector tribute--and "Pleasure Beach," a '60s party song complete with cheesy Farfisa organ as particular standouts.
