Yep in Argent, especially as Rod Argent and Jim we’re cousins.

Didn't Rodford also play in Argent and Charlie too?

Jim Rodford, bass player, The Kinks, Phoenix (I think?), but I remember him with The Zombies, saw live a while back. RIP

In response to Cyrille Regis, BBC 2 repeat the Adrian Chiles documentary, Whites v Blacks, How Football Changed A Nation, unbelievable true story, worth watching

Cotton, Paul - 1990 Changing Horses

ARTIST: Cotton, Paul
ALBUM: Changing Horses
LABEL: Sisapa
SERIAL: D2-77701
YEAR: 1990


LINEUP: Paul Cotton - vocals, guitars * Steve Lukather, Michael Landau, Buzzy Feiten - guitars * Rob Meurer - keyboards * Freddie Washington, Roscoe Beck - bass * Gary Mallaber - drums

TRACK LISTING: 01 I Can Hear Your Heartbeat * 02 I Walk The River * 03 Tiger On The Lawn * 04 Here In Paradise * 05 One Long Last Look * 06 Heart Of The Night * 07 After All These Years * 08 Jamaican Rain * 09 High Water * 10 From Across A Crowded Room


Paul Cotton, prior to this solo release had spent a number of years with soft country rock crossover act Poco, during their more radio oriented period of the late seventies and early eighties. Most of their later stuff is great light AOR-ish listening. Here, Paul has assembled a tremendous studio cast for his 'Changing Horses' album released on the small Curb Records subsidiary Sisapa. What you get here is melodic west coast type light rock, with some killer guitarwork courtesy of our LA session scene maestros Steve Lukather and Mike Landau. Production duties fall to the keyboard player Rob Meurer, while additional players turn up all over the place, including the likes of Christopher Cross on backing vocals, Paulinho Da Costa and Lenny Castro on percussion, and Paul Brown on keyboards.

The Songs
There are some delightful moments on here, including a superb cover of Chris Rea's 'I Can Hear Your Heart Beat', and a rehash of the Poco standard 'Heart Of The Night', though this version is much more upbeat and happier sounding. As well, there is the fantastic AOR of 'From Across A Crowded Room' where Lukather lets fly on a dextrous closing guitar-solo befit any Toto album, and the very radio friendly pair of 'I Walk The River' and 'Tiger On The Lawn'. The remainder of the album is great listening, one of those albums you can plug in and let play for a good 42 odd minutes.

In Summary
Not an album to be found in the bargain bins I'm sure due to it's scarcity at release time. But this one is a snug fit in the melodic rock/AOR camp without doubt. For Toto/Lukather fans, track this one down at all costs.
