I’ve Been Thinking (Sugar SJR-781) 1978
Debut release for Russ and Dale (female) Kirkland and their long-running band September. Their ’80s independent albums September First, Lines Are Falling, and Dreams And Lessons would include samplings of new wave and hard rock, but in 1978 their sound was more in line with artist like Christopher Cross – i.e., light rock, pop and ballads. Also some soft jazz moves ala Sonlight/Koinonia. Good clean production and sound for a custom featuring lots of keyboards in the mix (Rhodes, piano, moog and Arp). Includes a couple Pat Terry ballads(‘I’ve Seen It Now’ and ‘All I Ever Need’) as well as Craig Hughes’ ‘Nursery Rhymes’ (which also appeared on Jim Gill’s Spectacles). Later picked up by the New Born label (in a much artsier colorful cover) under the name Dale & Russ Kirkland, title One Way. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
