GORDON WALLER – Rosecrans Blvd\” / \”Red, Cream And Velvet\” (Columbia DB 8337) January 1968

This is a lovely Jim Webb song that Fifth Dimension did on their LP and Johnny Rivers did so well and that was one of my favourite songs last year. A plaintive doomy little song about a man who keeps returning to the scene of an old love affair, this is Gordon\’s first solo effort and his voice sounds very good indeed. I am a little worried about the arrangement, which sounds uncomfortable and speeds up worryingly in parts, it tries to be a bit too clever, I fear. 

I fear I\’m too familiar with the song to really be able to judge his chances commercially. I just wish the splendid Mr Waller good luck.
