smooth sounds and mellow grooves
This album is a secret gem. I stumbled on to it via other similar music, namely Robbie Dupree Walk on Water. This is as good if not better than Commodores, Earth Wind & Fire, Doobie Brothers, Robbie Dupree, Kenny Loggins, Hall & Oats, Boz Scaggs, Stephen Bishop, Andrew Gold and not to mention Jason Mraz, James Morrison, and Micah Dalton just to name a few. This should have been at least a Gold seller and 2-4 top 40's.
still listening to this album 35 years after i bought it...A FEEL GOOD RECORD !!!!
As a fan of Steely Dan this was one albums I picked and listen to because Donald Fagen was one of the producers on it. The second I heard it--loved it. Every song was perfect. This Brooklyn kid made Brookyn the place to be and spots in Santa Monica and Malibu, CA to hang. Loved his vocals.
