RATING:


Background
Though he's been gone now since his 2003 passing, Greg Guidry has returned from the other side of the veil. Earlier this year, a new set of recordings emerged under the 'Heart To Heart' banner. Greg had released two albums back in 2000: 'Soul'd Out' and 'Private Sessions'. In attempting some research for this album, I found out that some of the tracks had appeared on 'Private Sessions', but not all. Certainly, the material sounds like it was sourced from that early 80's era, and from my previous interview with Greg back in 2000 (refer to the Tags section below), he mentioned that the 'Private Session's material was a bunch of tracks that didn't make the 'Over The Line' LP. If that is the case, then what we have here is astounding, because the album is sensational from a GDM point of view. My guess is that this album could've been the springboard for a 1983 album with CBS, but Greg did tell me that 'Soul'd Out' was going to be his second album, and none of the songs on that appear here. So I'm still none the wiser.


The Songs
As much as I loved that 1982 debut 'Over The Line' (it did make my Essential List of West Coast releases earlier in the year), I could listen to the material on this album all day and every day. I love being reminded of that fabulous early 80's era from a musical perspective. Life was so different then, and if I could time travel back, I'd spend weeks travelling around the mid-west of the USA just browsing through the cut-out bins of the thousands of record stores that were in existence. How cool would that be? Listening to songs such as the opening pairing of 'Hungry Heart' and 'He's A Liar' remind us all just what a songwriting talent Greg was. Further digging, we get other gems such as the title track 'Heart To Heart', 'Do Me Right' and the undercover lover AOR of 'Don't Stop'. Not to be outdone, other classics include 'Runnin' From Love' and the stinging closer 'She's Gone'.


In Summary
Really, the whole album is quite breathtaking from a west coast/AOR overview. I could just put this on repeat play and be done with it. I'm sure many of you who love west coast music will too! According to YouTube videos and Amazon, the source of this album is an outfit called Score Records, whom I know nothing about. At this point, I haven't seen this surface as a physical CD, but the album is now widespread among the filesharing community. The sound quality is remarkably good, 320 kbps, and comparing the audio quality of some other recent albums, this stands head and shoulders above those. The Danish West Coast site click here.. has a good feature on Greg with a reference to his album releases other than this one. Check it out.

The true sound of classic AOR. This is as good as it gets. Guidry had the sound down to an art form.

It is sold also as a physical CDR on Amazon, but it's one of those made on demand CDR. As far as I know a silver CD doesn't exists
