THE PLEASERS - 'The Kids Are Alright'/'Stay With Me' (Arista 180) 1978
Erstwhile songwriter/producer Tommy Boyce was actively involved with The Pleasers during 1978 and this double sided 45 was the fruits of their liaison. The strange thing for me was that the beaty ballad 'Stay With Me' wasn't even mentioned on the record sleeve (front or back) and even more weirder was that they or the record company chose a Who cover as their next single.
'The Kids Are Alright' is a decent enough attempt and has a polished production but I much prefer the ignored flip 'Stay With Me'....
