FROM THE INSIDE

From FROM THE INSIDE
Written by Alice Cooper, Dick Wagner, Bernie Taupin & David Foster

It is a rock song full of heavy guitars (Dick Wagner, Steve Lukather, Jay Graydon…) and with a strong vocal performance by Cooper, but being a Foster production, it is also classy and perfectly arranged like other of his more rock oriented productions like “Stranded” or “Sweet Body” on “Airplay”, or the whole second side of Hall & Oates’ “Along The Red Ledge” (which was released the same year).

IT’S ONLY LOVE

From A HOLE IN THE WALL
Written by Marc Jordan & David Foster

“Along The Red Ledge” was released in 1978 and it was Foster’s first collaboration with pop/R&B duo Hall & Oates, a match that will last for another album (“X-Static”) and will have some nice hit singles like “It’s A Laugh” and “Wait For Me”.

PARADISE

From LITE ME UP
Written by D. Foster, B. Champlin, J. Graydon & H. Hancock

Here we are talking again about David Foster’s partnership with Jay Graydon. In 1982 Graydon was asked to produce a song for jazz legend Herbie Hancock, and naturally Foster and Bill Champlin were asked to collaborate to the project.
