The Babys is 1970's Rock & Roll worth checking out
In January of 1977, The Babys released their first album. "Broken Heart", their second album, came out later that year and "Silver Dreams" became a hit single found here on "The Best Of". "Everytime I Think of You", a mid paced ballad that is a melodic rocker of a song came from their "Head First" album in 1979. "Back On My Feet Again" is another hit single that incorporates what many of The Babys songs feature, that is keyboards with a strong bass line, Pop Rock lyrics with a strong Rock attitude. Add that the musicianship of The Babys is of the highest integrity and you will be listening to one of the late 1970's best kept secrets of mainstream Rock. John Waite provides more than just vocals, his emotion for the songs really come through. "Everytime I Think of You" is a perfect example of how John Waite adjusts his vocals based on the moment of the song.
The original lineup for The Babys was: John Waite on vocals/bass, Wally Stocker on guitar, Michael Corby on keyboards/guitar and Tony Brock on drums. Ricky Phillips joined The Babys in 1979 to play bass, as well as Jonathan Cain to play keyboards/guitar. Jonathan Cain later joined the legendary super band Journey. I recommend "The Best Of" The Babys to all 1970's Classic Rock enthusiasts as well as all fans of Rock & Roll. New fans should enjoy the accessibility of the music and the fine lyrics that made The Babys such a talented band. There are no liner notes, only a song selection, plus a group photo found on the front & back of the jewel case.
I would recommend this to a friend
