A lot of high ponts but this is the album that introduced me to the Tod Rungren classic song "Can We Still Be Friends?" - this is a smooth version punctuated by relaxed brass. The Robert Palmer version on "Secrets" followed the arrangement but without the horn section. This is my favourite version. "Sure Sounds Good To Me" "Heat On The Street" and "Bad Situation" are uptight workouts honed on the live setlist - here they are tight and precise - great sounds. "So So Satisfied" is a Ashford and Simpson song sympatheticaly treated.
Highly recommended - lots of features on YouTube. Searches there show that the man has been busy with soundtrack work.
