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

21-01-2018 07:43
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

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.

Official Soundtrack - 1984 Dune
It wasn't the greatest science fiction movie of all time, I leave that title to the likes of 'Alien', the original 'Solaris' and maybe 'Metropolis', but it's worth a visit now and then for nostalgia's sake and those with adventurous tastes or have a hankering for crossover prog will find the album attractive while those expecting a Toto connected AOR fix will be sorely disappointed.

Porcaro, Steve - 2016 Someday Somehow
After nearly four decades in the business with Toto, one of those musicians is now stepping out on his own as a solo artist. He is of course Steve Porcaro, one of the keyboard wizards of the band.

Toto - 1978 Toto
No AOR collectors album collection would be complete without this album.. Enough said..

Toto - 1979 Hydra
This album has been described as their most 'progressive'. In comparison to the rest of their discography I suppose this is a true statement. But if 'progressive' is meant to be a dig at the British art rock movement from a few years previous, then I feel it's quite wide of the mark.

Toto - 1981 Turn Back
We wind the clock back to 1981's criminally neglected 'Turn Back'. Steve Lukather has previously gone on record stating that the band was unhappy with their record company promoting their ballads and lighter material. 'Turn Back' would therefore appear to have been a backlash against these inside moves and it contains some great songs. I defy any serious pomp rock fan not to love this album.

Toto - 1982 Toto IV
One of the genre's perfect albums, and one that fully deserved al the accolades it was awarded.

Toto - 1984 Isolation
Many of the GLORY-DAZE readership will have no hesitation putting this album right up there as the best thing they've ever done.

Toto - 1986 Fahrenheit
After the aural bombast that was 1984's quite brilliant 'Isolation', this 1986 follow up might seem a little tame by comparison.

Toto - 1988 The Seventh One
With an album cover reminiscent of the 1978 debut LP, it is indeed a case of 'back to the future' with these L.A legends, as 'The Seventh One' delivers a variable set of tunes that range from incredulous pop to hard-out rockers, plus everything in between.

Toto - 1992 Kingdom Of Desire
In the many years before and after, 1992 would be a watershed year for Toto in the worst possible way. 'Kingdom Of Desire' was an edgy album and though containing two classic ballads, it couldn't quite get pigeon-holed in the same smooth and melodic rock breath as 'Toto IV" or 'Toto Seven'.

Toto - 1998 XX 1977-1997
This particular collection released in 1998 was an ensemble of tracks which never managed to make it onto prior album releases.

Toto - 2002 Through The Looking Glass
Eleven tracks, and I'm sure most of you will come away with different feelings. Guaranteed you won't all be the same. Unsure whether this is a totally necessary addition to your CD collection, but if you are a Toto completist, then there is obviously no hope for you.. lol!

Toto - 2006 Falling In Between
Toto combine the past, present and future with 2006's 'Falling In Between'. Is it their best work yet? The jury is still out..

Toto - 2015 XIV
From where I sit, this would have to be the worst Toto album I have ever heard. Even their 2006 effort 'Falling In Between' is better than this overrated affair.
