Daddy Warbucks - try this on Youtube and download it using Torch browser - it will strip the audio out - let it down the MP4 video and then it will download the audio as aac.

Background
Well let's begin this review on a very un-politically correct note by saying a looksie at the front/back cover and inside sleeve reveals Renee Armand was quite the babe. Talent wise, Armand started her career singing jazz standards in the late 60's and released a record, as yet unheard by yours truly 'The Rain Book' in 1972. In the mid-70's, she found herself recording and touring with John Denver and naturally released her second solo 'In Time' on Denver's Windsong label.


The Songs
This is a very soft west coast LP more along the lines of early Olivia Newton-John, Melissa Manchester and Carol Bayer Sager. Not the kind of record you pull out when you want to seriously rock, but one that would go over very well with your girlfriend or wife. Yeah, one of those records, but let's not be too macho; most of us have at least one or two albums like this in our collections even if we don't have a significant other and it has its place. What I like about 'In Time' is the extensive use of piano as a lead instrument, obviously hinting at Armand's jazz past and the use of English horn, recorder and percussion gives the album a very classy feel as opposed to much of the typical female singer songwriters of the day with pride of place going to 'Suite For 3 Poems'. A beautiful three part work reminiscent of the pioneering Laura Nyro and transcending the rest of the album as good as it is. The remaining material moves effortlessly between up tempo pop songs and ballads at times with a jazzy country flavour that is quite tasty.


In Summary
Armand currently lives in Nashville and is still writing songs, but a follow-up to 'In Time' has never materialized. The Japanese have picked up on this record in recent years although a CD reissue has yet to see the light of day. In time I suppose.
