TAKING A COLD LOOK
2009 reissue of this AOR project led by musicians/songwriters Tom Kelly and Billy Steinberg, who would later find fame as a very successful writing team throughout the '80s and '90s. Originally released in 1983 and produced to pin-point perfection by Keith Olsen (Fleetwood Mac, Foreigner etc), together with Toto guitarist Steve Lukather, the tracks display a healthy appetite for the kind of super glossy hi-tech sound employed by Toto, Steely Dan and Journey. However, it's Steinberg and Kelly's songs that provide the bulk of the cake - songs later covered by the likes of REO Speedwagon, Honeymoon Suite and Heart ('Alone' was a #1 hit). Rock Candy.
