Crackin’: Makings Of A Dream (1977)

I do have a soft spot for this sort of funky soft rock from the late seventies, I’m a sucker for the sound. This album is much lighter than the harder sound of the first album, giving it an AWB feel. Nice.

Crackin’ featured Leslie Smith, who went on the produce the excellent ‘Heartache’ album in 1982, once these guys had hung up their coats for good.
