Recorded in 1985 and originally released on a tiny French label in 1987 before finally becoming widely available through the progressive reissue label Voiceprint in 1999, Pip Pyle's first solo album is a Canterbury Scene supergroup outing, starring Pyle on drums, the Soft Machine's Hugh Hopper on bass and Elton Dean on saxophones, Pyle's former Gong bandmate Didier Malherbe on flute, and French keyboardist Sophia Domancich. Unlike most '70s progressive artists who ran out of ideas sometime around the turn of the decade, Pyle and his cohorts create an impressive set of seven tunes that are as vital and interesting as much of their earlier work…
Patrice Rushen's Watch Out was the singer/songwriter/producer's sole Arista album. The playful, upbeat title track single was a Top Ten R&B hit. The production duo of Jerry Knight and Aaron Zigman (the Jets, Natalie Cole's Everlasting) contributes the crystalline ballad "Somewhere," which was a popular radio-aired LP track, and the peppy, charting follow-up single "Anything Can Happen." Other tracks to watch out for are the cute, mid-tempo "All My Love"; the tasty slow jam "Till She's out of Your Mind"; the tumbling, funky third single "Come Back to Me"; and the rollicking "Tender Lovin'."
Somewhere in Wichita, Kansas, David is a potential college football star who's just won a four year scholarship to a (no doubt, nice posh) college somewhere in Oaklahoma. His mates decide to throw him a serious farewell party whilst his folks are out that night. Unfortunatley three uninvited guests secretly gatecrash these nightly celebrations, two are convicts who've fled from lockup, now hiding out somewhere in the homes cellar, while our third interloper is a mental patient escapee, with a connection to the party guests and notably David himself. Before long homicidal rage resurfaces in one of these trio leading to a carnage filled rampage.
