On the Dellwood Records label, catalog # DLD 56009, stereo pressing, from 1977. 8 tracks. Super rare psych/prog lp from Arden House..~



Produced by Christopher Hawk (reportedly Christopher Hawke of Jasper Wrath fame), 1977’s “Coming Back” is your typical tax scam label release. No writing credits, little or no biographical information and extremely short running time - barely over 30 minutes. Musically the album also took a little while to warm up to. My initial impression was that these guys were competent, but faceless purveyers of mid-1970s AOR … Material like ‘The Way You Feel’, 'Midnight Mary’ and 'Follow Me Down’ was tuneful, instantly forgettable, and could easily have been mistaken for something from April Wine, Loverboy, Kansas or any one of the hundreds of big hair bands that jammed top-40 play lists. Giving credit where due, these guys were at least flexible when it came to drawing inspiration. I have absolutely no idea why the absymal 'Streakin’ was included, but the clever and catchy 'Pleasure Trip’ recalled something out of 10C.C.’s catalog, while 'Somewhere Beyond the Sun’ demonstrated they’d mastered Yes 101. So having played the album a dozen or so times, I’ll tell you that there’s nothing awe inspiring here, but it’s far less pompous then anything Genesis ever did. …~
