Fountain of Youth 13, 198?

Lineup: Matt Riedl - vocals, guitar, bass / Derrick Hsu - vocals, DX7 / Sue D - Piano

Recording Info: Recorded at Hit and Run April-May, 1985. Engineered by Steve Carr. Produced by Steve Carr and Derrick Hsu.

Notes: I'm not sure entirely why the back cover scan looks so bad.

Reviews: There may be people out there who will enjoy this kind of stuff--I really have no idea. This is so far from what I normally listen to that I'm not sure I'm qualified to judge it. Still, I like to think I can recognize bad, regardless of what disguise it wears, and this is bad. I'm torn as to whether this is the worst Fountain of Youth record or not--there's always Troubled Gardens, but Wishes and Water are really something special. If it came down to a cage match, my money would be Troubled Gardens though, since they have a song called "Domination Dub," whereas the most intimidating title on this record is "Oh My, What A Shame," which just doesn't have the same kinda ring to it. Still, there's no doubt that Wishes and Water would go down fighting. And then write a sad, lonesome acoustipop song about it called "Falling From the Ring" or something similar.
