A hellish descent into schmaltz

"Don't Worry Ma was a solo effort by the late hard rock bass player and music producer Felix Pappalardi that was recorded in 1979 with host of top session players--including Eric Gale, Chuck Rainey, and Bernard Purdie--who skirted around the thriving triple Z jazz (jazz plus snooze) scene of the time. Yes, this is the same Felix Pappalardi who played with Mountain and who shaped Cream's sound.
After hearing this horrendous, wretched recording, one has to ask why? Why did Mr. Pappalardi think of even going into studio with the plan to produce this stuff? Why did the record company execs allows this session to occur? Why is this musical mess granted the dignity of an import pressing and release? Why would you want to ever play it more than once? (Curiosity is a powerful force, but beyond that. . . )
One cannot imagine a worse version of Sunshine of Your Love or why this hellish descent into schmaltz needed to be shared with anyone, ever.
