Charly Cazalet - Rough Mix: NYC Review
by Morley Seaver
Charly Cazalet was offered a spot in The Left Banke in 1966 shortly after they recorded their break-through hit, "Walk Away Renee" but turned the job down. He remained friends with the band, however, as he pursued other musical endeavours. He recorded some songs in the late '70s with The Left Banke lead singer, Steve Martin Caro.
Cazalet re-recorded a couple of cuts which also featured Banke drummer George Cameron. Reginald Ward who played in a band with Cazalet called The Silver Byke lends some vocals to a couple of songs. Cazalet also added some cuts written entirely by him, with him on guitar and bass. Fans of '60s and '70s pop music will enjoy this release. Caro's voice instantly recalls the great '60s pop of The Left Banke. Cazalet also has an interesting voice and the songs where he sings are among the best.
