"I remember this album from when I was a kid - and, although not underated amoung those in the biz, I still can't beleive RB is not a much more sucessfull recording artist. I particularly think that the four ballards (perhaps aptly) on this album are outstanding - and much prefer his heartfelt version of 'Miricles' to Colin Bluntstones - despite his vocal acrobatics."
The 1st solo release post Argent.

"This album was realeased after Russ left Argent, and his stated goal was to creat an album that was different from anything he had done with Argent. This was indeed that! There are many lovely ballads on this album, marking Russ as one of the best songwriters around. I truly love "I Don't Believe in Miracles:, as performed by Colin Blunstone, but when I heard this version from Russ it quickly became my favourite.
Then "Fly Away" is really a catchy tune, with a great melody, and lyrics, a song to send you out on the sunbeams for sure:)
"Venus" is perhaps a personal favourite...

I am happy that these albums are getting re-issued, and this is a must have for anyone who is interested in truly great music.
