Emitt Rhodes

In 1970, the same year that the album "McCartney" was released, another homemade eponymous album appeared by a new artist named Emitt Rhodes. Emitt wrote all the songs, played all the instruments and even nearly cracked the top 40 with the catchy single, "Fresh As A Daisy." Critics and fans alike wondered where this terrific singer/songwriter came from (Hawthorne, California actually) despite the fact that he had kicked around in some recording bands over the previous few years and had even appeared on American Television's "The Hollywood Palace" as the front man for the Merry-Go-Round.



You can download the entire Merry-Go-Round clip complete with an introduction by Don Knotts at Bedazzled.com. The Merry-Go-Round also appeared as performers and contestants on The Dating Game!

After the initial "Paul Is Dead" hysteria calmed down in 1970, Emitt's self-titled solo album enjoyed a brief time in the Beatles mystery spotlight. An east coast disc jockey named Barry Richards stated that Emitt Rhodes "could be the Beatles." He played the entire Emitt Rhodes album on his show and commented, "He sounds so much like the Beatles, it's unreal." Then to add to fuel to the fire, Richards said, "Now I heard about the stolen Beatle tapes, which supposedly happened about a year ago." The next thing you know, the phone lines lit up and Richards had enough of a response to convince ABC/Dunhill Records to make Emitt available for not only an on-air interview, but also a local television appearance.



In the phone interview, Emitt showed admiration for the Beatles by proclaiming, "They were the biggest influence on my music, I would imagine." Rhodes told Richards that he had done two albums, one with the Merry-Go-Round and one solo, which had not yet been released. Prophetically, Richards responded, "I'm sure [the solo album] will come out now." A&M wasted no time releasing "Emitt Rhodes - The American Dream," creating all kinds of confusion in the record buying public and putting an end to the success of the ABC/Dunhill album. Emitt was put in the awful position of having two albums competing with each other. Showing the Beatles influence, one of the tracks on "The American Dream" called "Let's All Sing" features Emitt singing "All we are saying is give peace a chance" during the fadeout.



In one interesting exchange, Richards suggested that the song "Live Till You Die" had "some reference to McCartney," which Rhodes quickly denied. He also said he read in "Melody Maker" that Rhodes gave guitar lessons to Paul McCartney. Rhodes responded with a laugh. In a particularly macabre attempt to infuse Rhodes into a Beatles mystery, Richards asked if there was a picture of a body on the back of the album. Rhodes said it was actually a piano. Richards also tried to draw a link between a tree on the Emitt Rhodes album cover and a tree on the Abbey Road cover. Later that week, Rhodes filmed two solo performances for Barry Richards' television show. He also did a new in-studio interview. By that time, Emitt was sick of discussing the Beatles associations. When Richards stumbled over his words while trying to formulate a question about a link between the Beatles and the Merry-Go-Round, Rhodes simply said, "Then let's skip it."

Emitt's followup album "Mirror" (featuring the song "Birthday Lady") failed to produce the interest of his self-titled album. To make matters worse for the fledgling artist, Rhodes signed a contract with ABC/Dunhill that was impossible to fulfill, and by 1973, he saw his career go down the tubes. His last album, "Farewell to Paradise" showed his frustration with the music business. Although he has continued to be involved in the production side of music, we have heard very little from Emitt Rhodes, the artist since 1973.

An unreleased song from 1980 appeared on the Varese Sarabande Records compilation "Listen, Listen The Best of Emitt Rhodes."



He has worked with several artists including Ray Paul, who got him to take the stage again and enlisted his help in recording the McCartney song "Oh Woman, Oh Why" for "Coming Up: Independent Artists Pay Tribute to the Music of Paul McCartney."



In the late 1990s, it looked like Emitt Rhodes was going to take a second crack at the music business with a planned solo album on Rocktopia Records, home of former Righteous Brother Bill Medley. Personal issues delayed the album and the record company went broke before it was ever released. The picture below came from the Rocktopia Records website.



He worked with Jim Boggia, who was the subject of a recent post here. In fact after completing that post, I went back and listened to my complete Emitt Rhodes collection back to front. Emitt Rhodes could possibly be my favorite recording artist after the Beatles, but he is NOT The Beatles. His voice is distinctive and easily distinguishable from McCartney's voice. But like the Beatles, Emitt had a way of crafting melodies that stayed with you.

Emitt is still around, still making music, just not releasing it. He is interested in the mathematics of music and reads physics books. When a young fan called him on the phone a few years ago, Emitt queried him on the Pythagorean Theorem before agreeing to discuss anything about music.

There are a couple websites around chronicling the music and life of Emitt Rhodes, but there have been very few updates recently. The Emitt Rhodes Music Site was maintained by Kevin Ryan, who went on to write the book, "Recording The Beatles." There is also a fan myspace site that has not been updated in several months.

Still, every few months a new "Emitt Rhodes is recording a new album" rumor surfaces. The latest one has him being backed by a slightly country-tinged band. There doesn't seem to be any definitive information about it, but it was good to see a picture of Emitt in a recording studio from 2008 on Joel Larson's webpage. Joel was most notably the drummer of the Grassroots and Lee Michaels, but he also backed Emitt in the Merry-Go-Round. That's Emitt on the far right.



It is a crime that his outstanding voice and songwriting skills have been silent all of these years. We miss you, Emitt.

Good article Taf. It would be interesting to compare the successes and failures of Harry Nillsson alongside Emmitt Rhodes. Harry was another artist who was called a "one man Beatles" and at a time when the Beatles were in disarray and seemingly heading back to their bar band roots, Harry's music reminded listeners of the wonder and promise of the Beatles from 1966 to 1967. Of course Harry went one step further and befriended John Lennon and got the Beatles (while still a group) to endorse his music. I wonder if Emmit and Harry's paths ever crossed. It's a shame they never recorded together. Harry could have been "John" to Emmitt's "Paul" or maybe a Pete to his Tom (know what I mean Apple Records fans?).

Come on guys I thought you were hardcore Beatle fans? I'll let Tafultong answer it for ya.

Tafultong said...

I think most readers will know that Pete and Tom were songwriting partners in Badfinger (another place where people turned when trying to fill the Beatles void in the early 1970s).

The thing about John and Paul was despite their formidable egos, they were both "band" men. Emitt and Harry seemed to be solo, through and through. Funny though, I have been listening to Harry all week.

Tafultong said...I think most readers will know that Pete and Tom were songwriting partners in Badfinger...

Perhaps. Then again some of your readers who claim to be experts in PID keep referring to solo McCartney songs in their respective PID forums with titles like "Baby I'm Amazed" and "Someone's Been Knocking At The Door" so I wouldn't put money on them catching a Badfinger reference.

True about Harry and Emitt being purely solo. Considering the early 1970's was a golden age for singer/songwriters and Beatle-influenced music it's a wonder that both Harry and Emmitt didn't achieve greater success, although Harry scored a few hits and a monster one with his Badfinger cover. I take it you know already that you share a love of Rhodes with publisher Bill King?
I can't get over how uneducated on the Beatles and particularly McCartney solo many of the posters on NIR are. They frequently get names wrong, song titles, the sequence that albums were released, misidentify photos of artists, etc. It's a real mess and Jojo seems to be the only one with some working knowledge on the subject but rarely corrects the bad information. It would be a pain in the ass to police every post I suppose.

Speaking of Badfinger, I friend of mine once told me a story about the one who killed himself; I know now it's not true, but did any one else hear this story, or was I just a naive little kid?
When listening to demos for the latest record, the suites at Warner Bros. told him, they needed something better. The songs sucked, and told him to come back with better songs. So, he hung himself in the garage, and tape recorded it, and had the tape sent to the Warner executives, with a note that said, "Is THIS any better?"

Tafultong said...

Vince,

Actually two members of Badfinger committed suicide by hanging.

Pete Ham's suicide note read:

"Anne, I love you. Blair, I love you. I will not be allowed to love and trust everybody. This is better. Pete. P.S. Stan Polley is a soulless bastard. I will take him with me."

Not as much is known about Tommy Evans's suicide, but wiki says:

During the evening of November 18, 1983, Evans had a heated argument with Joey Molland of Badfinger on the telephone, chiefly regarding potential publishing/ASCAP divisions of the "Without You" song whose ASCAP royalties accumulating for airplay which had been funding Evans, and other publishing funds being held by Apple Corps Ltd. pending resolution of disbursement. Early the following morning, the 19th of November, Evans was found dead by suicide, his body hanging in his backyard on a willow tree. Allegedly, he left no note. Family and friends have speculated he was overwhelmed by the combination of his conflicts with Molland, ex-manager Bill Collins and ex-bandmate Mike Gibbins over the pending royalties, plus the U.S. lawsuit he felt threatened his livelihood further. But a major factor of Evans depression, alluded by many friends and family members, was that he was never able to get over his former bandmate's Pete Ham's suicide. Marianne Evans, his wife, was quoted in a documentary stating "Tommy said 'I want to be where Pete is. It's a better place than down here' ...." Thus the sad and final irony of the man who wrote the chorus of "Without You", "I can't live, if living is without you..."

I don't put any credibility in the recorded death story you heard.

OK, I've bitten my tongue long enough.
Emitt Rhodes sucks! He wasn't that great to begin with, and he hasn't managed to get his act together in 39 years! I am not impressed.
So he sounds like Paul McCartney does he? So does Plastic Paul at NIR! (Or was it Mikey?)
But I think he's a part of the PWR mystery because Neil Young wrote a song about him, called "American Dream" saying he was "all washed up", and Neil used that name in a reference to a Paul replacement in the Buffalo Springfield song "Broken Arrow". So he probably does have something to do with it.

Since Jude no longer takes the vicious bait from you hooligans, let me point out a couple of things you have wrong here.

1. Not Funny
2. Stephen King did not kill John Lennon because JOHN LENNON IS ALIVE.
3. Did you actually watch the Condensed Pilgrim?
4. It wasn't Jude. The man says, and says it clearly, that his name is Steve Lightfoot, not Jude.
5. Get a life.
6. Get a girlfriend
7. Get a job
8. Notice how God hates you? I did.

9. Notice how God should not have allowed you to have been born? I did.

If you read the book by Stephen King "the Shining" backwards,
it says clearly

"I shot John Winston Lennon, but he lived. I got famous, we condensed a pilgrim, and told Jude."

Since Jude will not defend himself from these vicious hate filled attacks, I will speak for him.
Two people? Only two? Among the hundreds of people who read this blog daily, only two are laughing. We vote you off the island.
Who has the last laugh now? We do.
And you can't vote us off the island because we voted YOU off first. And there are more of us. Way more. And we aren't laughing at your jokes. We are laughing smugly because we don't laugh at your jokes, there are more of us and we aren't laughing except because we are laughing because we voted YOU off the island first. Before you even said you voted us off we had already voted you off by not laughing. So take that you vicious hate filled two people who laugh at your own jokes.

Greet the day knowing that it is genuine Mike. While America sleeps, you know before they know, that it is. And we can all have a good laugh now that we own the island. And we can laugh at our own jokes now, because none dare vote us off the island because there are more of us. Way more. And we all have the same sense of humor. And we all know that Paul is Alive! And so is John Lennon.

Does George Kush aka Mario know that Steve Lightfoot is basically in his backyard stealing virtually every idea he ever had and is profiting on Sarasota live television? Does he?
That Steve Lightfoot has a website and a book that steals almost verbatim every idea that George Kush has ever said!

13. No laughing on the island. None. Or we vote you off. Period. Even if Jude says something funny unintentionally. Especially then. Then we laugh, and only then. Or if he says "arsed" like all good British subjects of the Queen. Because nothing can be funny to Jude. Ever. Never ever ever.

Not true at all. Jude made a joke about Fight Club. Remember that?
We all had a good laugh then and it was funny. Not funny in a laughing AT Jude way, but funny in a normal natural joke way.

"The first rule about the Iamaphoney Fight Club is: "Never talk about the Iamaphoney Fight Club"

And then some putrid hate filled idiot had to say "You don't know where I've been Jude!" and totally ruin it. No wonder we hate you and God hates you.

Since Mr. Lightfoot is not laughing, does that mean we can't vote him off the island?

Jude said...

I never called anyone a hate-filled hooligan. What you are is a coward who posts anonymously, just as you've always been since you first started posting at this blog eons ago. You know that by issuing your ad-hominem attacks anonymously I can never effectively "fight back", so to speak. You like being the only one who can play your little schoolyard games; you know that once you register a name and really stick with it that every taunt, every joke, every instance of ridicule will be hurled right back into your face. And you can't take what you can dish out.

P.S. You MAKE IT about me.

Jude I'm shocked at you. Yes you've been villified but you have also been commended at times as well. There is more than ONE person commenting here anonymously. By yesterday's total there are at least 5 and I'm pretty sure that you KNOW several of them. It would seem that, yes, maybe one person has a continuing issue with you but the majority of the anonymous comments do not even mention you. This one IS directed at you obviously but I don't have a personal stake in whatever went down at NIR so I have no reason to attack you and in fact never have. Keep an open mind.

I only harass Jude 10% of the time in Florida and 50% of the time in California. The other 40% of time I just watch Emitt's three ring in the van.
