LOMA 2065Tommy Starr

The melodic and catchy ListenBetter Think Of What You’re Losing which is best described as a beat ballad, was to be the sole 45 by Tommy Starr – but it is a real winner. Starr’s vocal is really well restrained behind a big orchestral arrangement full of nice touches. The uptempo “Love Wheel” is perfectly adequate but without the charm or the power of “Losing”. These very late Loma tracks were masterminded by that redoubtable behind-the-scenes music man Jesse Herring.


Love wheel / ListenBetter think of what you’re losing ~ LOMA 2065 (1968)

Thanks to my friend John Lias for the excellent suggestion.
