Mixed at Producer's Workshop April 1979.

Mastered at A & M.

Arrangements by Walter Egan and the Professional Band.

Passionate, young at heart

I think LOVE AT LAST was one of the most beautiful songs ever written....

Hi fi means High volume to Walter
Review written by John Fitzgerald, August 21st, 2004

Although Lindsey still appears on backing vocals on one song on this record (the smooth, catchy "Like you do") it appears as though Walter wanted to more or less go it alone here which makes for a much more rocking album, maybe his most rocking album to date but it's certainly more rocking than "Not shy" & "Fundamental roll". It reminds me a lot of the Malibooz album at it's wildest. Those of us who like Egan's mellower recordings may find this rather disappointing but for what they are, the rest of the songs have stronger hooks than you'd expect though probably weaker than his first two solo outings. The packaging helps give the album a charming nostalgic feel to the proceedings and even if it's far from perfect, there's enough positivity here for recommendation.
