Country Road - Unicorn (12) - Uphill All The Way (CD, Album)

 · It's easy to dismiss Unicorn's debut LP as little more than a Crosby, Stills & Nash ripoff, but listen closely -- what Uphill All the Way lacks in originality it makes up for in craftsmanship, with a beauty and grace that render arguments about innovation moot. Harmonies this natural simply can't be taught, let alone copied, and Ken Baker's original compositions -- though products of rainswept /10(5).

6. März Melden. bezogen auf Uphill All The Way, LP, Album, Av/, TRA this is total CSNY damage, but heard as an impulse filtered through the UK and the zigzag magazine ethos, it has a whole lot more charm (and is far less drummed-in) than, say, "deja vu." which render it way more interesting than it might be otherwise/5(32).

 · The Unicorn’s first album, Uphill All the Way, sounds like a band simply ecstatic at the possibilities of this new brand of folk-rock; they cover all the greats of the genre: Neil Young, Jimmy Webb, John Stewart, James Taylor, Joe Cocker, and Gerry Rafferty.

 · Blue Pine Trees, issued on the Charisma label, followed Uphill All the Way, the band's debut on Transatlantic. That album produced by Hugh Murphy emphasized covers - of James Taylor ("Country Road"), Neil Young ("I've Loved Her So Long"), John Stewart ("Never Going Back"), and Jimmy Webb (lead single "P.F. Sloan").

  2. Die erneute CD-Ausgabe von UPHILL ALL THE WAY enthält vier sehr schöne Bonustracks, darunter die hervorragende Single "Cosmic Kid"/ "All We Really Want to Do". Insgesamt bekommt man hier also vierzehn Titel mit knapp einer Stunde Spielzeit geboten. Und gerade in depressiven Zeiten wie diesen legt sich die Musik von Unicorn wie Seide ums Herz/5(13).
