Bobby Vee 1968

Review

Who would have thought that on his 20th album and in his tenth year of stardom, Bobby Vee could have introduced an album as good as this? And a blue-eyed soul album, no less? Opening with a Jimmy Webb-authored title track (which has somehow fallen below the radar next to Webb's work with Richard Harris and Glen Campbell), Vee proceeds with a surprisingly Motown-heavy (and surprisingly good) album of white pop-soul -- is he going to reach the soon-to-be-designated "Woodstock generation" with any of this, or make anyone forget the Temptations, the Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, and so on? No, but Vee was able to do in a slightly poppier context exactly what the Grass Roots were doing from a rock standpoint, and the results not only held up in 1969, but they aren't bad listening decades later -- even his original, "Thank You," slots in perfectly amid the Motown covers, and heard a few decades on sounds like a good potential single. ~ Bruce Eder
