Archie James Cavanaugh ‎"Black And White Raven" 1980




This must be one the best soft-rock/blue eyed-soul albums ever, and the story how A&M only released the LP in Alaska 1980 is a nowadays a legend. Thanks to the connoisseurs in Japan this masterpiece been reissued a couple of times the last fifteen years. I immediately think about Boz Scaggs (What Can I Say, Lowdown, etc) finest moments from the mid seventies when I hear this. The producition is very slick and adult oriented, and there were a bunch of groovy studio musicians on this LP. Sadly Archie James Cavanaugh didn't get the attention and standin ovations back then, but he has surely got it recently. This IS groovy!

Enjoy!

Thanks to "erasmus" I saw a groovy video on youtube with Archie, you can also buy this groovy album directly from him here!
