PHILLIPS / MacLEOD - Le Partie Du Cocktail! (1979)
Here's a very fine and elegant harmony-laden record that you will dig a lot if you like yer pop with Beach Boys trademark constructions and wonderful, surprising chords progressions all over the place (but not only that: Wings, 70s FM pop à la Boston, Queen guitars...). I honestly don't know much about these guys other than they are from the U.S. and apparently released a second, self-titled album one year later. (What...? That you have this second album...? Oh, please leave a message...!)
At any rate, this is one melodic gem of a record to be enjoyed big time.
