Probably Tim Finn's best solo album. His brother Neil helps out a lot on it. Mitchell Froom Produced
Tim Finn "Crescendo"
More Pop-Prog from Asia. By the end of 1983 lead singer John Wetton had been kicked out of the band! So, they brought in friend and sound-alike Greg Lake for a very brief period. Steve Howe on electric sitar!
ASIA "Open Your Eyes"
With it's refrain of "it's a mayday, It's a mayday" this one came to mind yesterday.
I remember I used to listen to this song feeling like the oldest 16-17 yr old around.
A song of weariness and frustration, I was wondering when I might feel some happiness or joy. It didn't help that I was working a miserable job as a bus boy for $3.35 an hr. (a raise from $2.85/hr!). I was "wishing my life away" Some good things did eventually show up but I also learned you never really "arrive" to a permanent state of contentment. Life is a series of constant adjustments.
Saga "Times Up"
An oldie that reminds of childhood. Still played a lot these days on the radio.(at least on SiriusXM)
Jim Croce "I Got a Name"
The first video from Neil Young and Crazy Horse's new album
