Product Description:

Liner Note Author: Mike Ragogna.
Collectors Choice's 2009 collection Rarities from the Capitol Vaults serves up exactly what it promises: a bunch of rarities from the '70s that have been languishing within Capitol's vaults. This 12-track disc balances alternate takes -- including versions of "I Am Woman," "Blue," "Don't You Mess with a Woman," and a version of "No Sad Song" sung in French -- with extended dance mixes and the occasional unheard tune. The biggest surprise here is that a fair number of the unreleased songs tend to have a prominent backbeat -- usually some sort of play on disco, but "Tell Jack" is a pretty terrific slice of Elton John-styled glam rock -- and they would have gone a long way to livening up some of Helen Reddy's proper albums, even if they may have stood out among the adult contemporary fare. That side of Reddy is naturally showcased here, as on the gently swaying "Lullaby" and cabaret-esque "Exhaustion," so there's a little bit of everything for Reddy fans (and with "Tell Jack," something for non-Reddy fans, too). You have to be a fanatic to really get into this, but that goes without saying, doesn't it? ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
