*****
Schöne easy listening Nummer, mit Unterstützung von Linda Ronstadt eine # 13 Anfang 1980 in den USA.
****
...gut...
*****
schöner angenehmer Song, so macht Country Laune, wobei es ja teilweise um die Karibik geht :)
*****
...sehr gut...
***
▓ In Holland was deze plaat van "The Dirt Band" met behulp van "Linda Ronstadt", in april / juni 1980, een grote hit !!! Ik kom nu net niet verder dan drie sterrren !!! (NL Top 40: 10 wk / # 3) !!!
****
angenehmer radiotitel...stört nicht weiter
****
Schöne Nummer ... weckt Kindheitserinnerungen, da ich von 78 bis 84 mit meinen Eltern in USA lebte (Dad war bei der Luftwaffe in El Paso) und bei uns sowas dauernd im Radio lief ...
*****
Das weckt Erinnerungen...
***
Na ja ...
******
so einfach - und so grandios - voila a Highscore
*****
Sehr schönes Stück aus dem Jahr 1979.
****
sehr lieb :-)
***
Ach nein, klingt nach gar nichts. Halb Country Musik mit einer Portion Karibik, das kann nicht gut kommen.
****
Mooie Country song. (Ook zo'n vergeten song)
*****
Nett und angenehm, weht wie eine leichte Brise...

gefällt mir sehr gut
*****
mir auch
*****
Leuk en catchy nummertje! Een van de betere nummers van 1980, van de gehele jaren 80 vind ik 1980/1981 en 1988 de minste jaren, maar dit soort nummers maken dat helemaal goed!

sterk werk
*****
Heel mooie hit van The Dirt Band uit 1979.
****
Von diesem entspannt präsentierten Countrytitel existiert auch eine deutsche Fassung von Jürgen von der Lippe (So ein Kamel) – 4*…
****
Erg sfeervol countrynummer van The Dirt Band, met de mooie vocale steun van Linda Ronstadt!
4+
******
... das wusste ich bis jetzt nicht, dass Linda Ronstadt hier mitgewirkt hat, auf alle Fälle ein wunderschöner Song!
****
Geht eigentlich fast schon in Richtung Schlager....

Gute 4.
*****
...noch bin ich ja bei meinen "liebsten 300 tracks...der hier hat einen platz ganz weit vorn....
*****
Guter Country-Song bei dem ich automatisch die deutsche Version im Ohr habe. Auf der B-Seite der Titel: "Take Me Back".
****
Und das hat wirklich keiner auf Deutsch gecovert? Ich finde das wäre doch ein gefundenes Fressen für Bernhard Brink oder Chris Roberts gewesen! :)
Eine nette Nummer, haut mich jetzt nicht um, aber ganz nette Melodie!
**
Gecovert hat es - Achtung - kein Geringerer als Jürgen von der Lippe. Dessen Fassung finde ich übrigens besser als dieses Original.
