Gerard Kenny: Living On Music (1980)

Second album from a little appreciated artist, who had a hit with ‘New York, New York’ and sang ‘Made It Thru The Rain’ before Bazza, both from his previous album ‘Made It Thru’ The Rain’.

I managed to crib this album from @Late For The Sky’ before it dropped off and I’m pleased that I did. It’s a really fun album. I’m not sure that you would get away with a  song like ‘Jailbait’ nowadays though!

    I remember hearing the track “Jailbait” on TV. It’s not specific what type of people it’s referring to. I think it refers to laws in the USA, which don’t apply elsewhere. It’s also impossible to find this track online, although tracks with the same title by other artists are available. Please will you upload a copy of it here?

    I remember hearing the track “Jailbait” on TV. It doesn’t mention a specific age for the girls he’s singing about, though. I think it’s referring to laws in the USA which didn’t apply elsewhere. It’s not available on iTunes or Spotify. Please can you upload a copy of it here?
