The Pop Side Review

by Heather Phares

As the title suggests, The Pop Side gathers some of the exotica innovator's more straightforward hits -- 25 in all. His arrangements of classic pop songs and show tunes such as "Indian Summer," "Gigi," "Unchained Melody," and "I'll Never Stop Loving You" show just as much skill and imagination as his more eclectic recordings. Though the work included here isn't always Baxter's most distinctive, it does reflect a different side of his talent.
