BOBBY OROZA - MY PLACE, MY TIME / THROUGH THESE TEARS Vinyl 7”
Bobby Oroza follows up his newly released Get On The Otherside album with another must have 45.
The A side is one of the mid-tempo stand outs, “My Place, My Time,” where Bobby humbly pours his heart out about his own difficulties and how he made up his mind to get past them. Like a lot of the other tunes on this album there is a message of encouragement and an invitation to a new perspective Bobby has found at this stage in his life. Cold Diamond & Mink’s backing track has the perfect tone to carry the message and the whole tune comes out somehow tough, sweet, encouraging, and introspective all at once.
The B side, “Through These Tears,” is a heavy duty ballad sure to become a staple in the slowie sets. As usual for Bobby he does it up in his own way, with his own tone, and it stands out from his peers. Although it has all the makings of a classic B side ballad, a closer listen finds Bobby again with a message of getting past the trouble and coming out on the other side of it all.
