Playing For Keeps (Greentree R3556) 1980
Solid album of ballads and mid-rocking stuff, basically as good as anything Sweet Comfort Band or Liberation Suite ever did. Dynamic synth, piano and electric guitar join forces with a strong nod to ‘80s AOR on cuts like ‘I’ll Have Enough’, ‘Rock Or Sand’, ‘I’ve Never Been There Before’, ‘Teach Us To Forgive’, ‘Don’t Be Deceived’ and ‘Satisﬁed’, suitable for enabling listeners to unleash the dormant Toto within. No strings or horns to be found! Dig the baseball card photos of the band members on the back cover. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
I have not acquired this album yet. Thank you Donald for both the front and rear cover photos, plus the track list.
