Maiden Wine / The Musical Touch Of Leonard Nimoy
Ya know, people make fun of Leonard Nimoy's recording career. OK, so he wasn't the greatest singer in the world but he has recorded more albums than the Beatles. I get tired of him being put down. Sure it's easy to scoff but he worked hard at recording these works. In recent years he has actually made some very good albums, distanced from the "pop variety" he made in the 60's & 70's. As you read through the reviews you might notice some of the DOT Reviews are less-than-kind. Well, let's face it, the albums were pretty bad. I saved William Blakney's original reviews and have only added to them, so the tone can be a little harsh.Nimoy also discusses his acting career, earlier albums and signing up for "Star Trek"
As I've said to many who have written to critisize the reviews, Hey if we can't make fun of our heroes who can we make fun of?
Enjoy the site.
