I’m reposting this for Didier.
An interesting subtext, was a recent post on the ‘Less Obvious Yacht Rock Songs‘ page on Facebook that bemoaned the English accent of singer John McBurnie. This is an anethema to me, as most British vocalists sing with an American accent, unless they are Chas & Dave of course.
Another of those one off albums that leave you wondering what happened to the artists involved and asking yourself why they never produced another album. Larry Carlton sits in the producer’s chair for this one and between them they come up with a great album of Westcoast Pop. Shame they never gave it another try.
A bit of trivia for you: the track ‘Don’t Worry Baby’ was used a the theme tune for the Japanese programme ‘The Best Hit USA’.
