This album was so poorly promoted around my area that I didn't even know it existed when I found it in a cut out bin in 1988. Since I liked Neruda, As Far As Siam, and Tom Cochrance and Red Rider, I figured that I'd take a $2 chance on this disc. Glad I did. The undisputed star of the album is Big League, a song about a can't miss hockey prospect whose life is cut tragically short. (A hockey song! How cool is that? Sung by a Canadian guy! Even cooler!) The quality doesn't fall off after the opener. Victory Day, Sons Beat Down, Calling America and Vacation In My Mind are all top notch tunes, further cementing in my mind that Tom Cochrane is one talented songwriter. Red Rider may not exist in name anymore, but I've found anything with Tom's name on it to be close enough in my book.
