This one comes from Jonder's recent list of his favorite albums when I requested people submit their personal lists......and since he made me a waaaaay cool "Forever Changes" cover project, the least I can do is post this disc, I had forgotten about it, but it is a power-popping gem from that great year of 1979 ("The dudes are sharp, the ladies are fine, we are the Class of........well, you get the idea)....
I'm not really familiar with his body of work, BUT, I did play the shit out of this album back in the early 80's......"Strange Man, Changed Man" still sounds great today ("Girl of My Dreams" is still a wonderous single, one of the best of the era, and one which is criminally under-comped
)......another fun fact was that Trouser Press magazine sent this album out, WITH A BLANK LABEL, to subscribers for them to do a blind review. I was one of those subscribers. I never wrote the review. I suspect drugs may have been involved.
Still, a finsd, semi-forgotten album, and a wondeful slice of the great sounds of 1979......Jonder may check in, I am guessing, to tell you MORE about how fab this disc is, and it really is. If you are not familiar, well, you should be!!
Long Live 1979!
