Farrell & Farrell – Manifesto – 1986

I’ll be honest about this album. I didn’t listen to it in the 80’s so this week was the first time I heard it. It’s actually quite good. I thought Farrell and Farrell were essentially an easy listening team but this album is in fact is a pop album. This was also their last album on Star Song before moving over to Dayspring (Word). Anyway I don’t know much about what the Farrell’s were up to in this period as little is actually written about them. Interestingly David Robbins provided some vocals on the album but was better known as a lead singer for Mastedon and X-Sinner. What was he doing on a pop album?
