#7 Emitt Rhodes “Rainbow Ends” – Top 10 Albums of 2016

This is Emitt Rhodes first album of new material in 43 years. That alone should spark the interest of even the most cynical of listeners. With the aid of ex-Jellyfish Roger Joseph Manning Jr. and Jason Falkner along with guest appearances from Aimee Mann, Susanna Hoffs, Jon Brion, Nels Cline & Pat Sansone from Wilco, Probyn Gregory & Nelson Bragg from the Brian Wilson Band this cast of thousands stand in unison squarely behind their man, helping him realize his follow up to 1973’s aptly named Farewell To Paradise album as if no time had passed between albums at all. Rainbow Ends is one of the finest singer-songwriter pop albums the 70’s never produced.

Key tracks: Dog On A Chain, If I Knew Then, I Can’t Tell My Heart, Put Some Rhythm To It
