Rupert Holmes - Widescreen (1974) [1995, Remastered with Bonus Tracks]

Rupert Holmes (born David Goldstein on February 24, 1947) is a British-American composer, singer-songwriter, musician, dramatist and author. He is widely known for the hit singles "Escape (The Piña Colada Song)" (1979) and "Him" (1980). As a recording artist, Holmes broke through with his first album, 1974's "Widescreen" on Epic Records, which introduced him as a presenter of highly romantic, lushly orchestrated "story songs" that told a witty narrative punctuated by clever rhymes and a hint of comedy. Barbra Streisand discovered this album and asked to record songs from it, launching Holmes on a successful career. She then used some of his songs in the movie "A Star Is Born". Holmes also arranged, conducted, and wrote songs on her 1975 album "Lazy Afternoon" as well as five other Streisand albums.

Rupert Holmes - Widescreen (1974) [1995, Remastered with Bonus Tracks]

Holmes' debut betrayed the heavy influence of Brian Wilson and (to a lesser degree) Nilsson, but his self-professed cinematic brand of songwriting was far closer to adult contemporary and MOR Tin Pan Alley than either of those greats dared to tread. Barbra Streisand helped launch Holmes' career by covering two of the songs, "Widescreen" and "Letters in the Mail." The CD reissue adds two bonus tracks from his self-titled 1975 LP.
