U-Turn - 1977 - Living In The City

Sidewalk Teaser/I Am So Lucky/Living In The City/Small Talk/Motor Machine/One Day Love Affair/All Night Long/U-Turn Me On/I Like It/Lady Of Light

After posting the single had a request for the album so here it is.

U-Turns' only album it was released on 'Lazer Records' and as it is produced by Sherbet producer Richard Lush (which suggests that someone was prepared to throw some money behind them) and the hairstyles were fashioned by a Faces fan. Also special mention is made of Cold Chisel and Angels producer Mark Opitz for 'all his help'.
 Musically U-Turn remind me of 70s UK good-time rock bands and the album does have some catchy tunes such as 'I Like It' and 'Lady of Light'.
 Other than guitarist Shane Pacey, who composed or co-composed the album with other band members, the rest of the band do not seem to have gone on to any band of note. Pacey did re-emerged a decade later in the blues band Bondi Cigars.

    After having a listen, there is no doubt in my mind that the lead vocalist of this band should have been the person chosen to replace Shirl in Skyhooks instead of Tony Williams.

    I don't know who he is, but he would have been perfect!
