    Marigold Sky

    Got this cd spinning and like totally digging this 1997 H&O album.
    Not a bad album, smooth easy listening. My standout tracks, Romeo Is Bleeding, Marigold Sky, Throw The Roses Away and Time Won't Pass Me By. Like them all.

    An underappreciated 1990's gem.
    I remember when this album came out I hadn't paid much attention to it in 1997. Twenty years later I find myself enjoying it. A little 1970's, 1980's blended in with a 1990's style vibe.

    It was an under-the-radar album. Nevertheless it was a solid effort. There was some promotional fanfare, but H&O had not yet had its full commercial resurgence circa 1997, and it isn't as if Push Records had the budget to fully market and promote the album the way a major label could have during that era. I remember enjoying seeing them recommitted to working again.

    Not a huge fan of the album but I like it. Romeo Is Bleeding is my favorite track.....ahem, for obvious reasons (see my avatar).

    Terrific record. A return to form, IMHO.

    Great album. Didn't do much, but glad they had a bigger "comeback" with Do It for Love a few years later. I was surprised that this album was not acknowledged or included in the Do What You Want Be What You Are box set....Beauty on a Backstreet was not acknowledged as well, but they all but disowned that album.

    The title track is one of their very best. I'd include it on a 1 CD compilation.

    Just finishing my listen now - great album, forgot how much I enjoyed it - except for the way-too-obvious 'I Can't Go For That' clone 'Hold Onto Yourself' :)

    Record label issues might have prevented their inclusion.

    I agree that Marigold Sky may have been a label issue, but Beauty... was on RCA. Oates talked about it's exclusion on a morning talk show if I remember correctly. Either way I love both albums!

    I like the album a lot...but I have to say the guitar on "Romeo" has always irritated me...

    What a great largely forgotten H&O album- I am not even sure any tracks were on their long overdue "Do What You Want" box set a few years ago????

    Romeo is Bleeding is maybe the best H&O album opener ever!

    The sound quality on this wasn't great IMO. Quite dull and pinched. Almost sounds like an MP3, at least on the European pressing. Has anyone compared mastering on different copies from different countries? Was ours just crap?

    Do you recall why they dislike Beauty? It's one of my faves, especially as a transition to Red Ledge.

    It had to do with the breakdown of their relationship with the producer Chris Bond.
