The name Hookfoot sounds as generic as Various - Aperitivo Volume UnoSweathogand other pedestrian s monikers, and the music on the group's second release, Good Times a' Comin'reflects just that. The blues-oriented grooves are all solid and played with precision, but they also fail to excite. Some of it comes off like Savoy Brown without any bite.
Why they didn't raid the Dick James vaults for a hit or ask their friends John and Taupin to throw them a hook is the real mystery of Hookfoot. It's an elaborate package, with a gatefold containing the lyrics and classy photos, but these aren't what Is Anyone There - Hookfoot - Good Times A Comin would classify as songs to be sold to other artists.
Sometimes sidemen are supposed to be just that, lending their ability to translate a performer's ideas -- to help put the crowd into a frenzy; one can't see Elton John performing the title track, "Good Times a' Comin'," despite Ian Duck and Caleb Quaye generating interesting moments with their guitar duel. It seems none of John 's magic rubbed off on the pair's songwriting chops. Still, had England's pianoman made an appearance on this record, it would have made a world of difference.
What it proves is that without Is Anyone There - Hookfoot - Good Times A Comin Elton JohnCarole Kingor James Taylorthese records end up sounding like instruments playing themselves.
