Overall great album. I agree with Globe199 that this isent one of Bob James best albums though, but still worth getting a copy of.

It's amazing to think that the guy who would produce one of the best albums of this genre ("Touchdown") would produce this steaming pile of terribleness just a year earlier. There's really not a decent track here. The Bob James originals are derivative and dorky. The covers are just awful, especially "We're All Alone," one of the worst songs of the last 500 years. It was nauseating when Rita Coolidge did it, and it's indescribably worse as smooth jazz.

Stay away from this disaster.
