Big Towne, 2061
|Big Towne, 2061|
|Studio album by Paris|
|Recorded||1976 at the Total Experience Studios, Hollywood, California|
Big Towne, 2061 is the second and final studio album by the power trio group Paris, who disbanded not long after its release. The album was not critically acclaimed, and did not sell well, reaching #152 on the Billboard pop album chart.
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.
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.
The album was re-released on CD, on the Zoom Club label, in 2001 or 2002 and again in 2004. The CD re-release did not include any additional, re-mixed or other bonus tracks.
All music composed by Bob Welch except when noted.
