Picks and Pans Review: Make Your Move
Captain and Tennille
Daryl and Toni are heading for their fifth wedding anniversary with a new multimillion-dollar home in Pacific Palisades (Daryl's nearby studio cost another $1.5 million). Further, while developing a new TV image, the Captain dropped his hat, and the already striking Tennille went blond. So much for being reluctant Dragons. This album, their first new release since 1977, includes a typical sampling of both how bad and how good they can be musically. The strong-selling ballad single Do That to Me One More Time, written by Tennille, is full of sophomorically titillating lyrics ("Once is never enough with a man like you"), and her How Can You Be So Cold includes what must be the zillionth use of the line "I'm burning, burning, burning with desire." But in Love on a Shoestring and an updated version of Happy Together, a No. 1 hit in 1967 for the Turtles, she uses her admirable, sturdy voice to create a rock-pop sound so vivacious it doesn't make any difference if you preferred her as a brunette.
