AMG REVIEW: In 1984, R. Stevie Moore signed with the French label New Rose (he had released the Goodbye Piano EP on the owner's previous label in 1978); that summer, he traveled to Paris for a promotional visit that included some solo live performances. The two-disc Embarrass Paris wasn't recorded during this visit, but in New Jersey a couple of weeks beforehand. It consists of 37 R. Stevie Moore classics, mostly from the preceding few years but also including a healthy dose of his classic '70s tunes, reaching all the way back to 1973's "Dates." The performances are uniformly excellent, many of them showcasing Moore's falsetto vocals, a part of his vocal range that he would soon begin using less and less as decades of cigarettes took their toll. Furthermore, this set makes plain how instantly recognizable Moore's signature electric guitar style is, and how integral it is to his songwriting. The fact that these 37 songs sound nearly as good in their solo performances as they do in the more familiar full arrangements, and that the solo voice and electric guitar settings don't get boring over the course of 90 minutes, is testament to R. Stevie Moore's skills as both a songwriter and a performer.
