PHILIP BAILEY - PHOTOGENIC

Hello and welcome back.. from his 1984 album ' Walking on the Chinese Wall' album came this track.

It is the first track on the album and features 'Phil Collins' on Drums and various Cylon Type voices.

Photogenic was originally released as a single but a lost interest, the powers to be decided to release 'Easy Lover' instead to gain attention to the album.

I think this is a wicked song, typical Phil Collins drumming with the excellent vocals of Philip Bailey, who, after this record, went on to sing gospel and released a gospel album as well.

Play Loud.

THINKMAN - BEST ADVENTURES

Hello and welcome back... Must admit, I've never heard of this song till the other day.

Released in 1986, 'Best Adventures' was track #1 on the album 'The Formula'

Apart from having a killer sound, Best adventures relies heavy on that Drum Sound due to the fact there are 2 drum kits used in this track.
You will find this track in the 80s TV series 'Miami Vice' (episode - Red Tape) (S3 E19)

Lead singer of the band 'Thinkman' is 'Rupert Hine', a well know U.K singer, musician and producer.
Some of the artists Rupert has produced for =
Tina Turner
Howard Jones
Saga
The Fixx
Thompson Twins
Stevie Nicks
Chris de Burgh
Suzanne Vega
Rush
Underworld

In fact, Thinkman is Rupert Hine (solo project but presented as a group) with actors used in TV performances such as Top of the Pops.

Many thanks to 80s on Speed website for opening my eyes (and ears) to this amazing track/album because in Australia, Thinkman / Rupert Hine was never heard.
