BROCK WALSH - Dateline Tokio (1983)


This was one of those AOR albums from the early '80s only released in Japan. Criminal, because this is a true jewel.
BROCK WALSH is a talented songwriter with a perfect voice, and this "Dateline Tokio" is plenty of sticky choruses and inspired hooks. Just listen 'PAPER DOLL' ... awesome tune.
I love this disc, marvelous, simple and effective. Perfectly written and produced, with some dream-like musicians playing, who by themselves do not only bring 'big names' to the credits, they really print his interpretative quality
through the album. Some tracks were penned by Walsh with monsters Glen Ballard and Martin Briley.
Highly Recommended.
