THINK OUT LOUD was an '80s studio AOR project featuring awesome singers, songwriters, producers Peter Beckett & Steve Kipner.
At this point I consider needless to describe the leafy pedigree of both monster Multi Platinum-selling musicians... they have written & produced songs for Heart, Survivor, Player, countless pop artists, soundtracks, etc.
On Think Out Loud's self-titled debut, both share lead vocals through out the album, Peter credited with lead guitar and programming, while Steve handled the bass, keyboards and some programming also, and of course, they're the producers together with another eminence in this matter; Humberto Gatica (Chicago, Tina Turner).
The who-is-who of the L.A. cream session musicians play here as well; Michael Landau, Paul Jackson, Jr., Steve Lukather, Bob Marlette, Bobby Caldwell and more.
Rabid AOR collectors already got this one, if you don't, wait no more.
Requested by a friend, this is taken from the Japanese press of the CD, at maximum quality including artwork.
