Bright Spots 2 (Sunspot SP-1023) 1981

 

 

Apparently Brite Spots must have been a big enough hit that it warranted Brite Spots 2. Although it’s a two-disc set, Brite Spots 2 is not as engaging as its predecessor. When you get right down to it, there are really only five vignettes here (each in a 60-second and 30-second version), but they’re presented in eight different formats: Beautiful Music, Black/Rhythm & Blues, Country Western, Classical, Espafiol, MOR, Top 40 and Religious. Some of the formats only include spoken word over music, while others (the better ones) include little skits. My favorite is ‘Forgiveness’ where the husband tosses and breaks his dinner plate shouting “you’re not a cook — you’re an arsonist!!”. Other topics are ‘Love’, ‘Accomplishment’, ‘Togethemess’ and ‘Belonging’. The skits for the Black program are entirely different from the other formats. The Country Western guy gets my vote for the best speaker with his soft comforting down-at-the-dude-ranch drawl. Some great cheesy canned music in the background, especially the Beautiful Music and MOR formats. Banded tracks again – I had to stand by the turntable and manually advance the flippin’ tonearm for all eighty tracks.    (The Archivist, 4th Edition by Ken Scott).

I have not acquired this album yet. Thank you Donald for the rear cover photo and track list.
