Far Cry: The More Things Change… (1980)

An album by Phil Galdston and Peter Thom, who had previously released an album in 1977 entitled , oddly enough, ‘Galdston & Thom’. I’ve never heard that record, but what you get here is light breezy soft West Coast rock, not a million miles away from what China and Joe Chemay would release a year later. It does have a touch of the Steely Dan’s about it in places as well, but that isn’t surprising when you see who helps out on backing voclas.

Stand out track for me is ‘The Hits Just Keep Comin’, but a really nice album to boot.

    You can really hear Donald Fagen’s background vox in “It’s Not as Simple as That”!
