Terry Melcher - Royal Flush (1976 RCA Victor)

Released by Melcher's own RCA Victor's affiliated Equinox label, 1976's "Royal Flush" was challenging. Apparently intended as a concept piece, the set was built around a Western theme (gambling, girls and Mexico). Like the debut, Melcher's voice remained an acquired taste. Sounding like a cat with its tail caught in a door, or think of Neil Young at his least tuneful ("High Rollers" and "Rosarito") and you'll get a feel for what Melcher sounded like. The fact his voice was so limited probably explains why the album had an odd, muffled sound - Melcher's vocals frequently sound treated ("Down In Mexico"). While Melcher was clearly interested in scoring a commercial hit, material such as "Fire In a Rainstorm", "Take It To Mexico" and "Rebecca" sounded listless and unenthusiastic. Like it's predecessor, the collection proved a commercial nonentity. (The album was originally released with a gatefold sleeve.).
