RANDY BACHMAN 'Survivor' Lemon CDLEM65 (2005)
Former BTO man Bachman released this album in 1978, his penultimate solo
set, and opted for the country rock sound (think uptempo Eagles), with a nod
back at BTO and vocal harmonies that lean towards the Beach Boys, especially
on opened “Just A Kid”.
There’s plenty of uptempo rock’n’roll piano and guitar on “One Hand
Clappin’”, while other tracks have a more acoustic feel.
Toto drummer Jeff Pocaro makes an appearance, on this highly enjoyable
album. Nothing too enthralling or heavy, but for fans of gentler 70s rock
will love it. Well annotated and packaged too.
