As a comeback, Midnight Rainbows
stands as a fine testament of Joe South
's talent. While not exactly the pop sound he was famous for, it fits in nicely alongside such acts as Atlanta Rhythm Section
, who helped out here and there, and the Marshall Tucker Band
. Containing a truly gospel take on "For Your Precious Love" and a letter-perfect rendition of Leon Russell
's "Stranger in a Strange Land," this disc has improved with age. Tinged with hints of country, "Midnight Rainbows" stands well alongside all the other fine Joe South
releases, a fine product indeed.
