Charlie Peacock – Charlie Peacock – 1986

This was supposed to be Charlie’s breakthrough album that was supposed to solidify his secular presence. Unfortunately that didn’t work out. A&M bailed on the album and it eventually ended up on Island records. Island was unable to properly promote the album so it didn’t have any secular success. One of the stranger production ideas was to include the single from his previous album, “Lie Down In The Grass” on this album. All in all the record companies all screwed up what should have been a top 40 album. The beats and synth were perfect for the time and the album was easily as good as anything on the radio at the time. Oh well it’s left for us to enjoy, what a great album.
