Fill Your Heart with Biff Rose

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
Fill Your Heart with Biff Rose does a good job of drawing 18 tracks from Biff Rose's 1968-1985 recordings; about two-thirds of it is taken from his pre-1973 output. The most famous of his songs, "Fill Your Heart" (covered by David Bowie on Hunky Dory), is here, of course, as is "Buzz the Fuzz," which Bowie can be heard doing on a live 1970 bootleg (but never officially released). For collectors, there's a rare non-LP 1969 single, "Take Care of My Brother"/"Myrtle's Pies," taken from sessions for an unreleased album that didn't get far; the A-side in particular has somewhat more elaborate production than much of his early material, though it's still not exactly ...

Unfortunately, due to licensing restrictions, there's nothing from his pair of early-'70s Buddah albums, which leaves a bit of a gap from his prime. That's enough to keep this from being the best single-disc Rose compilation that could have been assembled. As compensation, there are informed liner notes about his enigmatic career, though he's no more peculiar than the music on this disc, which mixes quirky humor with vaudeville music and jazz-boogie piano.
