Galdston & Thom is widely known for their later band “Far Cry” who released “The More Things Change” (1980). It was July 1973 when Phil Galdston, a songwriter born in New York, met Peter Thom coming from Montreal, Canada.
Then, they started song writing collaboration and made demos. “Why Don’t We Live Together” performed by Barry Manillow in 1975 was successful enough to get a deal as a recording artist. John Simon, the producer of this album, recommended Warner Bros. Records to made a deal with them and thus, this album was done under Warner Bros. This is one of the best mellow sophisticated American pop album released in late 70’s.
