Thanks Tony! I´ve not kept it up to date for a long time now but just added a Michael Mcdonald-penned song with a great intro and overall nice groove..30 years old to be exact ;)

Great find, a new Jarreau song! There were some great live appearances on the Alan Thicke show :=Thanks Tony! I´ve not kept it up to date for a long time now but just added a Michael Mcdonald-penned song with a great intro and overall nice groove..30 years old to be exact :)

Hey Tony, thanx for Your comment, I haven't had time to listen so carefully on the album yet - I have the 1995 release also - will probably do some comparison.

Later,

Thank you, Tony.  Did you fare through the hockey riot?  Glad to make friends with you and yes, it is amazing that there are more European and Japanese fans of Westcoast AOR than Americans?  Look for me on Facebook too, if you are on there.

...since you're so fond of..  upploading unreleased version from by Chicago (allegedly from their "18" sessions feat Lamm, Champlin,Scheff  and Lamm's  officialy released version from his "Life Is Good In My Neighborhood"

Hey Tony, sorry for my bad English as I'm a German native. Thanks a lot for your kind words. This song was an unreleased CHICAGO tune from the '18' era from 1986. This particular version is on the FLY AWAY album....songs of David Foster mostly produced with Swedish musicians and U.S. natives. Since February 2010 I'm a correspondent of a podcast called INSIDE MUSICAST. We are on Facebook and on www.insidemusicast.com

.......following the westcoast talents. Check out our archives. You'll probably like it if you are interested in interviews with musicians of the studio scene. Take care and best to you and yours. Uwe

 Yo bros.--I've added the tune "More Nights" with killer vocalist Phil Perry--I saw him live with Lee Ritenour almost 20 yrs. ago--believe it or not,it was a free outdoor concert--I didn't even know who was playing--I fluked it,or it was good old predestination--anyhow,to state the obvious,the concert kicked a_s--Phil Perry not only has an incredible range to his voice,but he did not(to my knowledge)hit one bad note,flat or sharp--but it's the soul he's got that really seals the deal.

 

fyi--This tune was produced and arranged by a guy named Lee Curreri--he played Bruno on the TV series "Fame" way back in the 80's--he hasn't really put out a lot of work since--bit of a mystery.
