Bruce Hornsby And The Range ‎– The Way It Is (12″)

More commercial 80’s this time from 1986 and the piano led rocker from Bruce et al. The most distinct piano riff of the 80’s and is quite a lot more synthy than you expect. B-sides are both album tracks. The rockier “The Wild Frontier” and the piano style of the A-side is resumed on the track “The Red Plains”, very Genesis in places.

NEW LINK 2016!
