I was a bit cranky last week, waiting for various things to happen with the website transition. God it's good to be back. Didn't Gary Glitter sing a song like that? dogrun

Background
I'm not really sure where this guy came from or where he went after this record. 'Free As A Breeze' released in 1977 was his much harder to find first album with 'Save The Night' as a follow-up, after that not a peep. Clark painted the front cover art work which obviously impressed enough people at Capitol to make it happen and appears on the flip partially dressed, embracing a woman in some sort of cosmic-new age-pseudo sexual pose that could only have been produced in the 1970's. Yeah, those were the days, but musically - does 'Save The Night' hold up in comparison to some of the better work created in 1979?


The Songs
Not really I am sorry to say. Clark was obviously a talented man and this is very much in keeping with the singer- songwriter style of the era. If Dave Mason, Michael Johnson and a less artful Chris Rea ring your musical bell, then by all means search high and low for a copy of this LP, but don't expect to be blown away. There is some nice stuff here 'Fire At First Sight' and 'It Must Be Love' in particular but overall the record doesn't hit any high notes with me and it's not surprising it disappeared from store shelves so quickly.


In Summary
With some outside songwriting Michael Clark might have received the push he needed to secure a third album. I wonder..
