Roll & dance with (almost) the Mac
Review written by John Fitzgerald, September 5th, 2004

The main positive factor here is Christine's (and of course with her Mac friends) "Roll with me Henry" which really does make this album worthwhile on it's own. Richard Perry's bright production really brings out the best in all the Mac members here (the "Behind the mask" lineup sans Nicks), it shows the promise the BTM band had to offer and I think he really should've been considered as a candidate to produce FM even if it meant that they had to wait for him to be available but unfortunately it was not to be. However, this is a must hear as Billy & Christine chirp in great lead vocals, the horns are not too intrusive, Mick & John keep the groove pumping and Rick chucks in a great solo. You may remember this song done by Etta James as "The wallflower (Dance with me Henry)" as many FM fans will recall it from the "Back to the future" soundtrack album if not from it's origins. The rest is a mixed bag, mostly because of the wrong choice of performer for certain songs (in my opinion) but the tracks here do mostly stand up well musically, the one that does not here though is Rick James' go at the "This magic moment/Dance with me" medley as it tries to be faithful but it's use of 80's style instrumentation make it end up sounding like a run of the mill movie soundtrack song. Elton John's opening run through of the old boogie standard "I'm ready" has a barrelhouse feel with endless piano rolls and stabbing guitar pokes, Michael McDonald's "For your precious love" is a passable slow dancer while Howard Hewett's "The ten commandments of love" is not unlike the McDonald cut but not as good due to Hewett's facelessness. The horn arrangement on Chaka Khan's try at "Fever" sounds to me like something Rick Vito would appreciate going by some of his more horn orientated rockers he has done on some of his solo outings and The Manhattan Transfer are all over the doo wop of "I wanna be your girl", now THAT WAS an inspired artist choice. The so-so fast pep of The Pointer Sisters' "Mr. Lee" does steal a little thunder from the McVie & Friends great rocking shuffle mentioned above when listened to altogether but you'll probably wind up mainly listening to the CM & Friends track on it's own anyways. Randy Travis' "It's just a matter of time" can't decide if it wants to be a country croon or a stroll and speaking of strolls, though I'm not big on El DeBarge, his take on "Goodnight my love" is an admittedly fitting closer. "Roll with me Henry" does stand head and shoulders above the rest here, not that I'm biased or anything though!
