This was 707's first album released in 1980 and is a favorite among the group's fans. The album did not chart on Billboard, but a single was released - "I Could Be Good For You" b/w "Let Me Live My Life" (Casablanca 2280) which debuted on Billboard singles chart 10/11/80. It peaked at #52 and was on the chart for 9 weeks.
The songs "I Could Be Good For You" and "You Who Needs to Know" received the most radio airplay. To this day, "I Could Be Good For You" is a true rock classic.
Even though this album has been re-released on CD, copies of the original album on Casablanca still command a price of about $10.00 in used record stores. This album was released on a single CD which also contained the group's second album. It is still in print and easily obtainable.
BILLBOARD MAGAZINE REVIEW
Producer: Norman Ratner
Label: Casablanca (NBLP7213)
Quartet plays well-executed mainstream rock with slight new wave influences. For the most part though, the sound is closer to the hard rocking but melodic sound of Foreigner. Kevin Russell's vocals and guitar work are two factors which make this effort shine. Band shows equal skill on uptempo and slower numbers. Best cuts: "I Could Be Good For You," "Let Me Live My Life."
