Paris - Big Towne, 2061 (1976)

Big Towne, 2061 was the second of the two albums recorded by Paris (not to be confused with the Hip-Hop artist of the same name), a "power trio" who were active from 1975-1977.
Paris originally comprised guitarist Bob Welch, formerly with Fleetwood Mac, bassist Glenn Cornick, formerly of Jethro Tull and drummer Thom Mooney, formerly of Nazz, but Mooney left shortly after recording the eponymous first album, so drums on this album were played by Hunt Sales, who had previously been with Todd Rundgren's Runt.
The album was not critically acclaimed, and did not sell well, reaching #152 on the Billboard pop album chart.Bob Welch had written most of the songs for a projected third Paris album, when Sales fell ill, and the group disbanded before recording started, so Welch used these tracks on his solo album French Kiss...

Have this one on vinyl only, not as strong as their debut. But still some good material.
Might have to grab this as backup to my vinyl.
Thank Hanalex,always offering HQ posts.
