Comments

Equivalent release: Mercury MG-20421 (mono).

with original Mercury inner sleeve.

Inside The Groove

Benton's first full album including the big hit “It's Just A Matter Of Time”.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

All tunes are very “standard” singings with strings. It's true sometimes boring. But his voice is always nice, and the big hitter (the title song of this album) are great.

However, it is a pity that the title song is included in “Fake Stereo” format on this Stereo LP.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

6 out of 10
