AMG REVIEW: Ever since 1984's What's the Point?, R. Stevie Moore has released the occasional CD compilation collecting some of the literally hundreds of songs he's issued on cassette since 1968. Released in 2002, Hundreds of Hiding Places is rather atypical in that, along with fan favorites like 1978's "Puttin' Up the Groceries" (one of Moore's most popular tunes), 1987's memorable rocker "Sort of Way," and 1977's ghostly, gloomy "Steve," the 21-track compilation includes a fairly large number of instrumentals. Moore has never shied away from admitting that he was heavily influenced by British progressive rockers of the '70s, and his instrumentals tend to recall the likes of Steve Hillage-era Gong ("Kaleidoscopics II") or Hatfield and the North ("Chutes and Ladders"). The combination of these prog-poppy tunes and Moore's more characteristic quirky pop tunes, like the tender "Linger Longer Lucy" and the quirky but immediately memorable Brazilian pastiche "Hasty Banana" (with lyrics and vocals by wifer Krystyna Olsiewicz), gives Hundreds of Hiding Places a more low-key and ‹ dare it be said ‹ mellow vibe than previous collections like The Future Is Worse Than the Past or Contact Risk. Longtime fans might appreciate this a bit more than newcomers, however. Stewart Mason, All Music Guide

R. STEVIE MOORE "Hundreds Of Hiding Places" - CD 10 €
Pink Lemon. Second CD album release in Europe after wonderfull "The future is worse than the past" (1999). The US songwriter legend with that unbeliefable huge discography/tapography. "The American record industry's failure to recognize and promote the unique gifts of this giant talent is a case of criminal neglect", wrote Ira Robbins in the Trouser Press Record Guide. He was referring to home recording legend R. Stevie Moore. He grew up in Nashville. His daddy, Bob Moore, played bass for Chet Atkins, Roy Orbison and a guy named Elvis. Steve is often been called the „father of D.I.Y" (do-it-yourself home recording), because he began his 250 full-length tape legacy in the early 1970s, before cassettes and portastudios made everyone a potential cottage industry. R. Steve Moore (RSM) has released more than 15 albums on several labels since that days.

As Plato purportedly said:
Music is a moral law. It gives a soul to the universe, wings to the imagination, a charm to sadness, gaiety and life to everything. It is the essence of order, and leads to all that is good, just and beautiful, of which it is the invisible, but nevertheless dazzling, passionate and eternal form.
