Take It To The People (Spirit NDR-3004)  1980



Take It To The People would probably get my vote as their best album.  They did away with most of the strings, added a few electric country rock edges, and fine-tuned their melodic American-Eagles-CSN style.  Clean production, mellow layered harmonies and catchy pop-minded songwriting combine to deliver the fresh sound heard on tracks like ‘Confrontations’, ‘Sunlight Fell On Me’, ‘Lookin’ For A Lifetime Love’, ‘Someone Is Waiting’ and ‘I’m On My Way’.  The rocker ‘Son Of Man’ is a standout.  Includes assistance from keyboardist Richard Souther.  Produced by Al Perkins who also contributes his usual pedal steel.      (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
