Hartman, Lisa - Hold On - Used LP
white label promo.
The second album by Tabitha (from the Bewitched spinoff TV show in the 1970s), this album avoiding the disco trappings of the era while she offers Memphis and Motown, which are probably the main reason to check out this album, the versions clearly coming from the 1970s but also keeping plenty of the original intent intact. Much of the material is soft-pop tunes and country-tinged numbers that show her Texas roots, but the first side has some fire, opening with the cover of "Hold On" and the Hartman original "If You Want to Come Home," which mentions getting high a lot, and closing with "Old Time Rock and Roll." While her rocking soul versions don't come close to the originals, they're a bit more than just Hollywood novelty. -- winch
