“One of the best records ever”
A friend of mine emailed the other day looking for an album by The Sound, The World Needs to Hear. I didn’t have a copy (my Sound collection dates from later in their career) and I felt vaguely as though I should, now that someone whose taste I respect wanted one. So I did a little digging, which involved asking another friend if he could he me out. He responded:
The World Needs to Hear was their debut recording with Rick Strickland, Pat Hoffmaster, Sean Riley and Jess Farmer. It’s one of the best records ever in my opinion. Right up there with the Singing Americans Black and White.
Except this second friend wanted to know if I had a copy (I need new friends!). But high praise all the same, for the Singing Americans were top shelf, for sure. So now of course I want a copy of this album, which has, dismayingly, escaped my possession. Anybody who can help me out, let me know.Email this Post
