3 stars Nobody's fault but mine

While any discography of John Paul Jones will (rightly) list "Scream for help" as his first solo album, this is in reality a little misleading. "Scream for help" is a soundtrack album, the music being composed by Jones for the Michael Winner TV movie of the same name released in 1984. That said, the music here does not have the feel of soundtrack music, the tracks being substantial songs in their own right. Winner originally asked Jimmy Page to write the music, but as Page was unable to fulfil the request, he suggested asking Jones.

I should say straight away that there is no connection whatsoever between the music here and that of Jones' day job with Led Zeppelin. The album does though give some indication of what we can expect on his first true solo album, "Zooma". There is a rather incoherent feel to the album overall, the songs not sitting together particularly well, but heard in isolation they are of a decent quality. All of the tracks are written or co-written by Jones, two with his daughter Jacinda.

The album opens with the instrumental "Spaghetti junction", a track with a strong resemblance to the music of Booker T and the MG's, and not just because of the dominant organ work of Jones. The following "Bad child" sees Jones taking on vocals himself, and doing alright at it. His voice reminds me a bit of Tony Banks' solo effort ("Fugitive"). "Silver train" features Jon Anderson's distinctive vocals, supported by some incisive guitar work by Jones. It sounds like it should be good, but unfortunately the actual composition is repetitive and very ordinary. The following "Crackback" sees bandmate Jimmy Page contributing lead guitar while Graham Ward adds some heavy drums. The track is effectively a solo improvisation by Page, which sees him performing something somewhat jazzier than we are used to from him.

"Chilli sauce" is a synth instrumental performed entirely by Jones. The piece reflects his jazz influences, the synth tones being suitably slurred. "Take it or leave it" sees the first of two appearances by the fine vocalist Madeline Bell (of Blue Mink etc.) who also co-wrote the song. This lighter song with a straightforward dance rhythm is one of the highlights of the album. "Christie" is a delicate ballad sung by John Anderson and again another highlight. "When you fall in love" is the second and final song sung by Jones. The piece has a strong folk/Simon and Garfunkel feel, the acoustic guitar of John Renbourne (Pentangle) being familiar but effective. The album closes with a further ballad "Here I am" (omitted from the first pressings of the LP), Madeline Bell displaying her vast talents with tenderness and grace.

Despite the film credits, there is no orchestration on this album, the focus when compiling this release clearly being to gather together the songs rather than the background music. The result is an eclectic mix of disparate songs, some of which are highly appealing while others much less so. We should however recognise that these songs were composed with the film in mind, and may well have complemented the on-screen happenings well.

3 stars I just never realized that there was this album where it seems like the first album from John Paul Jones and might also be the first in scoring. Just found this from the cassette second market that cost me cheaply but really intrigued me to purchase because of two reasons: It's John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin fame whom his basswork as well as organ work I like (like in No Quarter) and there is one song that people have said as Jon Anderson's and famous in my country: Christie. So then I got it even though in a cassette format but in a good condition.

I expected that the music was somewhat similar like his solo work afterwards but I was wrong - it's a mixture of various styles of music especially pop and rock. The opening track 'Spaghetti Junction' sets the tone for the whole album with relatively fast tempo music in a loop programming style featuring guitar work by Page and organ by Jones. Quite an interesting opening, really - well....at leat I enjoy this instrumental bit. The second track 'Bad Child' features Jones in vocal. I love the two tracks where Jon takes vocal work: 'Silver Train' and the famous 'Christie'. 'Crackback' demonstrates Jimmy Page stunning guitar work and composition-wise I do enjoy this track. There are pop stuffs like 'When You Fall In Love', 'Take It Or Leave It'. If all songs were performed as the movie is on, I think all songs form a cohesive story line. But in this case is just a collection of songs.

Overall - it's a good collection of songs and a good start for Jones solo work. Keep on proggin' ...!

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW
