Bittersweet Songs (Glenmore SLCW 1035) 1979 UK *
Bittersweet Songs ups the professionalism a couple notches, smoothing out the rough edges of Days Go By for a clean soft-rock sound. A few light pop/jazz edges, plus periodic female backing vocals that sometimes add a touch of gospel. Some songs like ‘Running Time Down’, ‘Take These Hands’ and ‘Run Run’ have a nice acoustic guitar emphasis. Bryn Haworth donates electric slide guitar to the title track, as well as slide dobro guitar on the country-edged ‘Multimillion Show’. All originals written by John, save for a cover of Elton John’s ‘Salvation’. (Ken Scott – The Archivist).
