Breakin’ The Ice (Light LS—5751) 1978
Breakin’ The Ice brings a slight change in the band’s name, a switch over to the Light label, and a noticeable maturity in sound. More ﬁrst-rate samplings of glad-spirited pop-rock (‘Got To Believe’), funk-rock (the title track), mellow soft-jazz ballads (‘1 Love You With My Life’), slick lounge-jazz (‘1 Need Your Love Again”) and disco (‘Good Feelin’). Even if you’re not normally a fan of those styles, check these guys out anyway – they’ve got so much spunk and enthusiasm it’s hard not to like them. Still room for some straight-ahead organ/electric-guitar Petra—type rock in ‘Searchin’ For Love’. Horns provided by members of Seawind, production and horn arrangements by Seawind’s Bob Wilson. Gate-fold sleeve with stand-out cover art by Kernie Erickson (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
