Big Towne, 2061
|Big Towne, 2061|
|Studio album by Paris|
Paris originally comprised guitarist Bob Welch, formerly with Fleetwood Mac, bassist Glenn Cornick, formerly of Jethro Tull and drummer Thom Mooney, formerly of Nazz, but Mooney left shortly after recording the eponymous first album, so drums on this album were played by Hunt Sales, who had previously been with Todd Rundgren's Runt.
The album was not critically acclaimed, and did not sell well, reaching #152 on the Billboard pop album chart.
Bob Welch had written most of the songs for a projected third Paris album, when Sales fell ill, and the group disbanded before recording started, so Welch used these tracks on his solo album French Kiss.
All songs written by Bob Welch except: Outlaw Game & Money Love; by Bob Welch & Hunt Sales and Janie; by Bob Welch & Glenn Cornick.
