Michael McDonald

For some reason I have tripped over him several times recently on the radio and in random playlists. Listen past the terrible 80s production and the man is a brilliant singer.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

I quite like Michael Macdonald, but he's best on BVs, as on Ride Like the Wind, by Christopher Cross.
I can envisage using this remix for a 24 Hour/LEJOG montage.

I'd say Stephen Stills is underrated. This appearance by Crosby, Nash, Stills and Young with Tom Jones displays his talents.

Very very good as part of Steely Dan - and of course exccellent production values there.
Our son does know who Boz Scaggs is, we've done ok as parents.

Obsessively good production.
