Finally here This Classic! Totally agree with my friend Rick! Hurts To Be In Love Possibly The Best Ballad of all times!

very good release for GINO VANNELLI in the mid 80 s capturing exactly the pop rock spirit of that era and offering many remarkable songs like "hurts to be in love",'total stranger",' imagination"!many hooks ,mostly keyboard driven and some darker pop lines that i really dig!recommended
