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

Review of the rather splendid `Hornal` album is in the works too.

There is a three-part article coming up for E.L.O (Eldorado, A New World Record and Out Of The Blue). Look out for it soon.

Stoke City condemned 2 relegation. Who is the new manager? Paul Lambert.

Agreed Reyno about Clyde Best, further back is the story of Walter Tull which is quite heartbreaking, links to Northampton and lived in Rushden.

Big loss is Cyrille, only short time at Wolves, but I was at the Peterborough game where he scored the last minute winner, Cyrille and Laurie C, what a team.

I think many people forget guys like West Ham's Clyde Best whenever the subject of the impact of black footballers in the English game crops up. He was just as good as the West Brom trio years b4

Cyrille was part of the ground breaking so called 'three degrees' who did so much to break down racial barriers in Football back in the late 70's.R.I.P

In Transit - 1980 In Transit



ARTIST: In Transit
ALBUM: In Transit
LABEL: RCA
SERIAL: AFL1-3607
YEAR: 1980

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN:

LINEUP: Bill Cuomo - keyboards, vocals * Don Dunn - vocals * Clark Garman - guitars, vocals * Bob Siller - guitars * Bobby Lichtig - bass * Ralph Humphrey - drums

TRACK LISTING: 01 Rock 'n' Roll Queen * 02 It's My Way * 03 Still Got A Lot * 04 Belle Isle * 05 In Transit (Instr) * 06 Turn On Your Light * 07 Can't Get Enough of Your Love * 08 Too High For Heaven * 09 Five Block Thunder


Background
Boy do these guys look like products of the 70's or what? The hair, the vests, the flared trousers. Primarily the focal point of this band is the well known session musician Bill Cuomo who has since appeared on many AOR and West Coast albums. In Transit's style isn't that bad, in a similar territory to Airborne, Fandango and Fortress on their rockier moments, and meeting Firefall and Atlanta Rhythm Section on a stretch of road somewhere between Denver and Atlanta on their more subdued moments.


The Songs
'It's My Way' definitely moves into the A.R.S camp twinged with a bit of Molly Hatchet. Tell me that guitar line wasn't borrowed from 'Flirtin' With Disaster'? 'Belle Isle' has a softer touch to it, harking back memories of Rick Robert's fabulous 70's band Firefall, especially the synth wash in the background. Probably the best track on the album. The Firefall and A.R.S comparisons continues with 'Turn On Your Light', more of an uptempo AOR workout. 'Can't Get Over Your Love' drops into West Coast mode similar to Novo Combo while the piano based ballad 'Too High For Heaven' can be compared to some CCM type material we hear on Christian radio nowadays.


In Summary
Overall an OK album, and a rarity for collectors only. I shouldn't expect a CD release with this one though.

Keyboardist Bill Cuomo later played the keys on many classic melodic albums, among his countless sessions: Whitesnake '1987', Player 'Danger Zone', Survivor 'When Seconds Count', Steve Perry 'Street Talk', Joe Lamont 'Secrets That You Keep' clap

I also think you've been unfairly dismissive of this album George. There's some dynamic guitar/keyboard interplay. The songs are memorable - I love the intro to 'Rock n roll queen' It's not the bland limp-wristed affair the review suggests.

It gets a regular workout on my turnable and still sounds great nearly 30 years on.

I think I am going to rewrite this article. This one has certainly grown on me over the years.
