Another long lost gem re-issued by Wounded Bird. Patrick Simmons was originally a member of The Doobie Bros. with Michael McDonald and some of that sound has rubbed off on this album, vocal harmonies especially. Things kick off with the excellent AOR of 'Out On The Streets' which is an excellent opening track.'So Wrong' was a top thirty hit in some countries and is a typically 80's sounding mix of Hi-tech keys, funky guitar and a great hook. The rest is a good mix of Westcoast, AOR and a couple of ballads aswell. Nice re-issue and another Highly recommended one for all Westcoast/AOR type peeps.

I couldn't have said it any better than Jez. This one has it all. Awesome release !!

Very Good WestcoastAOR indeed from a Great Dobbie but not a classic IMO. Wow the names behind this album is pretty cool. "Why You Givin' Up" "Have You Seen Her" "Knocking at Your Door" and "Out on the Streets" are my favorite tracks. 8.5/10

Accurate comment by Jez...in my case i've found this album quite normal...decent...good songs in here are "Out On The Streets","Why You Givin' Up"(nice),"Knocking At Your Door"(great!)& "Have You Seen Her"(nice softy)...for fans of Westcoast/Lite AOR this must be a fine one...70/100
