A smashing sophomore effort!

"The first Pages album (simply known as Pages) from 1978 was an artistic triumph but a commercial failure. Its combination of jazzy pacing, bluesy coloring, and pop-rock overtones simply was too much of a cross-genre product to be successful in any of those markets. As a result, the second Pages offering from 1979 was decidedly more pop-rock in style.Once again produced by Bobby Colomby, Future Street represented the first of many stages in the transformation of Richard Page and Steve George from pop-fusion artists to big time rock stars with Mr. Mister. "I Do Believe In You" leads off the album with an outright attempt at a hit song. [It actually briefly peaked at #84 in December 1979, and was later covered by America and Frank Stallone.] "The Sailor's Song" came next, driven by an outstanding instrumental segment and captivating lyrics about life on the open ocean. The album tended to alternate between slower tracks like "Take My Heart Away", and "Who's Right, Who's Wrong" (co-written by Kenny Loggins and also found on his album, Keep The Fire), and more uptempo cuts like the electric title track and the slightly progressive-oriented "Chemistry." Steve George contributes a rare lead vocal on "Two People."Like the first album, Future Street maintains Bobby Colomby's exquisite production values and soothing sound and demonstrates an incredible range of styles, instrumentation, and pacing. Unlike the previous effort, the album has a more radio-friendly feel in tune with the times. This is not meant to take anything away from the album -- it is still far and away a first-class effort, and it is another must-have for true soft rock fans of the '70s and early '80s. Unfortunately, Page and George were unable to find commercial success with Future Street, either. The album failed to chart, and Pages was dropped from the Epic label. But Page and George refused to give up. With a revamped lineup, they resurfaced on Capitol Records two years later with another self-titled album."

"This CD brings back sooooo many memories....all good! The year was 1979 and I was a buding musician in college and I played the three PAGES albums I had to death. You can tell these guys listened to a few Steely Dan albums in their day. Hey AMAZON...find the other two albums and I can guarantee you two sales!"
Yes, yes, yes!

"Over the years, since Mr. Mister became popular in the 80s, I'd heard that Richard Page and Steve George had collaborated musically prior to their Mr. Mister days. I was delighted to find that some of that music is still available, namely this album. Excellent is the one word I can use to describe this CD! The music is brilliant, imaginative. Anyone who was ever a fan of Richard Page and Steve George from Mr. Mister should buy this CD. The music is not so "top-40". It's smooth and even a little bit funky. LOVE IT!"
