  • Emitt Rhodes - The Four Best Songs from EMITT RHODES

    9:06

    Currently unavailable on CD (unless you want to fork out $40.00 for a Japanese import), Emitt Rhodes's debut album is just too good to go unheard. Plus, the pops and cracks here only enhance the experience!

    Every song on this album is a winner, but here are four that have struck a particular chord with me:

    1) Live till You Die
    2) You Should Be Ashamed
    3) Lullaby
    4) Fresh as a Daisy

    Fresh as a Daisy was a minor hit for Rhodes, and today it's his best-known song alongside Lullaby (by virtue of the latter's inclusion in the soundtrack of Wes Anderson's THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS).

    I found my copy of this great album in a record/vintage store in Rock Hill, South Carolina.

  • Emitt Rhodes - Come Ride, Come Ride

    2:56

    The Merry-Go-Round had a recording contract with A&M Records when they disbanded in 1969. Rhodes recorded songs at A&M for a solo album to be entitled The American Dream, but A&M decided to not release it at the time. Rhodes then decided to go out on his own and bought equipment to make a recording studio in his parents' garage. Rhodes recorded his first album (Emitt Rhodes) in that home studio. He got a recording contract with ABC/Dunhill Records, who released his album, as well as the next two albums he recorded (Mirror and Farewell to Paradise). Rhodes got a $5,000 advance for Emitt Rhodes, which he spent on recording equipment. His first album was a critical success -- Billboard called Rhodes one of the finest artists on the music scene today and later called his first album one of the best albums of the decade. The album reached number 29 on the Billboard charts. The single Fresh as a Daisy reached number 54 on the pop chart. Meanwhile, shortly after Mirror was released in 1971 by Dunhill, A&M decided to release their old recordings of The American Dream, which confused record buyers. Mirror did reach the top 200 on Billboard's album chart. In 1973 Dunhill released Rhodes' final album, Farewell to Paradise.

    Rhodes wrote all of the songs on his albums. On Emitt Rhodes, Mirror, and Farewell to Paradise, he played all of the instruments and sang all of the vocals while recording himself in his home recording studio. He used a four-track recorder for the instruments for Emitt Rhodes and transferred those to an eight-track recorder to add the vocals. He used an eight-track recorder for Mirror, and Farewell to Paradise. The mixdown engineer on Farewell to Paradise was Curt Boettcher, the producer and musician who is best remembered for his work on the soft pop albums by Sagittarius and The Millennium.

    Rhodes' contract with Dunhill called for an album every six months (six albums over three years) -- a schedule that was impossible for Rhodes to meet, due to writing all of the songs and recording each instrument and vocal individually by himself. Dunhill sued Rhodes for $250,000 and withheld royalties because of his failure to deliver albums on the timescale required by the contract. Emitt Rhodes took nearly a year to record, Mirror took nine months, and Farewell to Paradise took over a year.

  • La vida de Emitt Rhodes - El solista mas subestimado de la historia

    10:10

    ▶ Hace poco se nos fue un grande del rock que todos deberiamos conocer, recibio el apodo de One Man Beatles (Los Beatles en un solo hombre). Compositor, arreglista, productor y multintrumentista, mas alla de la aceptacion de la critica la industria musical lo esclavizo y no lo supo valorar. En este video mas alla de un repaso es una valoracion de un grande.

    #EmittRhodes #TheBeatles #QuedateEnCasa #PaulMcCartney

    ▶ We recently lost a great rock that we should all know, he received the nickname One Man Beatles. Composer, arranger, producer and multi-instrumentalist, beyond the acceptance of criticism the music industry enslaved him and failed to appreciate it. In this video beyond a review is an assessment of a great artist.

  • Fernando Perdomo - Farewell To Paradise

    4:44

    Emitt Rhodes passed away June 19th 2020. He was a friend and I got to play bass on all of his final album Rainbow Ends. Recently the title track of his 1973 album Farewell to Paradise came on my phone which was on random and brought me to tears. I knew I had to cover it somehow. Today I figured out a way to do that with my guitar being The Voice. I think Emitt would have been amused by this take on his song.

    4:48

    album : MIRROR

    Hawthorne, California, native Emitt Rhodes made his first mark in the music world in 1967 as the leader of the baroque pop band the Merry-Go-Round. The band achieved some marginal success with the Rhodes-penned Live and You're a Very Lovely Woman, recording one album of Magical Mystery Tour-inspired pop. When the band broke up in 1969, Rhodes set up a home studio in his parents' garage and began his solo career, engineering and playing all instruments himself. The strength of his initial demos, now showing a strong Paul McCartney influence, helped him get signed to ABC/Dunhill. His critically acclaimed, self-titled debut managed to break into the Top 40 in 1971, but pressure from his record company forced him to rush-release a follow-up, Mirror, the same year. Mirror was predictably a lesser effort, barely charting. By the time of the third album, 1973's Farewell to Paradise, Rhodes was running into legal problems with ABC, since he was unable to fulfill his contract, which demanded he deliver a new album every six months. Disillusioned, he retired from the performing side of the business, working instead as an engineer and studio operator for Elektra/Asylum. Though he never released an album since Farewell to Paradise, he continued to write and demo new songs.
