This a great album that includes some excellent music. Scarbury has an incredible voice and it's a shame his career was not more successful overall. Aside from the ever popular "Believe It Or Not" GAH theme song, there are quite a few other gems here like "Everything But Love" (written by GAH song writer master Stephen Geyer and Joey himself). Other great tunes include "When She Dances" (Top 50 hit / Billboard) and "Some Of My Old Friends" (which is the only other song, aside from the main theme, that was originally written for the TV show but then later turned into a full version for the album's release).
The CD has been fully remastered and sounds incredible. On top of that, an OUTSTANDING job has been done on the packaging of the CD (CD artwork, booklet, inner tray - it all looks GREAT). I HIGHLY recommend this CD!
To be honest, the music on this CD is a far cry from the music I would ever normally listen to. But as I am a fan of, "The Greatest American Hero" TV series, I was so sorry that they changed the majority of the music for the DVD release of that show. This CD is the only way to hear the songs - or type of songs - that used to be such an integral part of that TV series.
So, this CD in it's own right is not something I would have ever likely have found or chosen to listen to on my own. Honestly, I don't know that it is such a great album. But hearing it now, I like it a lot and it does bring a rush of nostalgic associations to the TV series as it used to be, and memories of my life when I owned the cassette tape way back when....
Another great is WKRP In Cincinnati. Somebody buy the rights to this classic gem and make it availible on DVD!
