High and Outside

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jim Newsom
As the singer/songwriter era waned in the late '70s, recording artists of the genre found themselves being presented by the major labels in more heavily orchestrated, rockish settings. High and Outside presents Steve Goodman in just such an aural situation, with electric keyboards, horns, and sha-la-la-ing backup singers.

"The One That Got Away" ranks with the best of Goodman's compositions, and features a vocal duet with Nicolette Larson. Other highlights include the rollicking "Men Who Love Women Who Love Men," the N'Orleans-tinged "What Have You Done for Me Lately" co-written with Shel Silverstein, and a tasty rendering of the Jackie Wilson hit "That's Why I Love You So."
