Robert Byrne: Blame It On The Night (1979)

One of the most popular posts on this site was the Byrne & Barnes classic “An Eye For An Eye”. So, here is Robert Byrne’s equally delightful platter “Blame It On The Night”, his only solo effort and which came before that collaboration. This album features the singing efforts of Mac McAnally and Lenny LeBlanc, but more importantly a bunch of fantastic tracks, all of which are winners. All killer, no filler.

He went on to produce the likes of The Pointer Sisters and Patti Austen, but sadly he was found dead at his Nashville, Tennessee house on June 27, 2005, having died of unknown causes.
