 The Front / The Front

 
After the success of solo album with his wife in 1981, he started recording session with band members. However the new album was never released and he was obliged to stop the band. Do you understand whom I am talking about? His name is Bob Wilson of SEAWIND, the best late 70's super Hawaii based fusion/AOR band, known for the super horn section.
 
Bob Wilson had to find out a new vocalist instead of Pauline Wilson to restart his next musical journey and he met with Tommy Funderburk, the voice of Airplay. And, with Larry Williams, ex member of Seawind, Bob and Tommy recorded an album in Los Angels as the special project "The Front" in 1984. This album is CCM album, thus almost all of lyrics written by Tommy are very spiritual. But, music written by Bob are very sophisticated and well-produced/arranged with good 80's Westcoast pop feeling.
 
For your information, Bob and Tommy would formed new band "What if" later with Larry Williams and they released a secular album in 1987 under RCA.
