Brent Lamb – Tug of War – 1984

Yes this is the same Brent Lamb from Cornerstone and LoveNote and this was his first solo album after working with them. This album is decidedly easy listening and I think it compares with Sweet Comfort Band’s early albums. It spawned 2 chart songs, “Quiet Please” peaked at #26 and was on the charts for 9 weeks. “I’m Not Worried” was on the charts for 18 weeks and peaked at #36. While this album is easy listening there are a couple pop tunes that should get you tapping your toes.
