Singers and Songwriters is a very average compilation from St. Clair that haphazardly assembles a group of folk-rock and soft rock songs from the '70s. While it does everybody a favor by failing to recycle the same familiar songs of the era that populate dozens of other various-artist discs, it also fails to present much of an argument for why it exists at all. The picks are seemingly random, and at ten songs, roughly half the space of the disc goes unused. The featured songs include Kenny Loggins' "I Believe in Love," Dan Fogelberg's "Go Down Easy," Van Morrison's "Spanish Rose," Randy Meisner's "Never Been in Love," Dave Mason's "Save Me," Karla Bonoff's "Can't Hold On," and Carly Simon's "Tired of Being Blonde." This is clearly a budget title with little in the way of loving care put into the presentation.
