‘Gold’ by John Stewart – Classic Hit or Miss

Bombs Away Dream Babies is an album released by John Stewart on the RSO label in 1979. It peaked at #10 on the Billboard album chart. Despite selling over a million US copies, the disc never received a Gold or Platinum award from the RIAA.

The album is a fairly straightforward rock-pop album with tinges of the folk that had been Stewart’s staple genre. The appearance of Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks added to the commercial success of the album as well as contributing greatly to the overall sound of the album. Buckingham’s guitar work is understated by his usual standards but integral to the sound achieved while his vocals are a solid counter-point to Stewart’s rugged baritone. Nicks’ recognisable vocals add weight to the hits “Gold” and “Midnight Wind”.  “Gold” reached #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
