Racing Cars - Downtown Tonight (1976 uk soft rock)
I loved this album when I first heard it in the Seventies. Very west coast sound, maybe a softer edged version of the Doobies or a slightly more funky Eagles.
I came across it again recently and was a little disappointed. It sounds very dated and the individual tracks are a little too eclectic. It doesn't really gel as an album.
Some great moments though. "They Shoot Horses Don't They" is a beautiful ballad written I assume as a tribute to the film of the same name. There are also a couple of really good funky instrumentals.
