Emitt Rhodes - Emitt Rhodes (1970)

If you're tired of the Beatles, here's Emitt Rhodes. Emitt Rhodes is a guy from California who could best be described as a 'one man's Beatles'. His voice sounds extremely like Paul McCartney's voice, and the songs are very alike of the Beatles' repertoire. But hey, he does it fantastically, so why bother?

12 very catchy songs make for a nice 30 minutes of 70s pop music. He plays all the instruments on the record: all of them. He recorded the album at home when he was only 19 years old, but still it sounds very mature and confident. I also like the innocence that comes with this record.
