Flash & the Pan - Epic 1978
This, their debut album, is perhaps the album that clearly confirms my postulate. The album is innovative, does not sound like something you've heard before, it is characterized by fine catchy tunes and intelligent lyrics that gives the listener food for thought.
The album includes the group's (duo) debut single, "Hey, St. Peter," which should have been a much bigger hit than it was for. A top 5 position in Australia and a top 100 in the U.S.. The fine sequel "Down Among the Dead Men", which also is from this album, performed at roughly the same level, and reached a place at number 54 in Great Britain.
As mentioned, the album marked by very fine songs written by the duo of George Young and Harry Vanda, who together had a history of the Easybeats. No numbers fall through and the album can only be recommended at the highest level.
Besides the two hits I'll highlight "Walking in the Rain," "California" and "First and Last".
