From the picture on the back album jacket, Illinois based Alan Purvey was a one man band for this private press LP. Crisp sounding AOR with progressive leanings and nice synthesizer arrangements are what is delivered. Side One is made up of five shorter AOR songs and Side Two has three longer more progressive songs. “Summer” is a dreamy mid-paced cut and the closing new wave synth melodies of “Hope Is Just A Child Away”.
'Chased By Shadows' is nigh perfection but there are some other tracks on this LP that catch my eargoggles, those being, the title track 'Living In A Dream' and on the flip is the super, smooth and spacey 'Summer', the aforementioned 'Chased By Shadows' and the culmination of the album 'Hope Is Just A Child Away'.
