I have been listening to a lot of gone and forgotten 70s albums recently and this one stands out. The music is smooth and understated but has a rock-solid groove and tempo changes running underneath that make it heavy in a subtle way. Excellent expressive vocals and good lyrics back it up and this guy could have been quite well known I think if his career had continued.

I knew it ws familiar. Ive seen this album around, but never gave it a listen. Its pretty good, doesn't sound dated to these ears either. This is a damn fine song.

Yeah I think so, far as I know it was a one-man operation. There's some real talent there.

I'll search out this album and have to give it a full listen. If it's anything like the song there, then Ill be more than happy.
