DAN HILL - Hold On

Born in Toronto, Dan Hill is an unabashedly sentimental singer/songwriter. In 1977, he co-wrote & scored a hit with the highly emotional "Sometimes When We Touch" with Brill Building alumni Barry Mann, whose hits range from "Who Put The Bomp" and "Here You Come Again" to the well-loved Righteous Bros. standard, "You've Lost That Loving Feeling". "Sometimes When We Touch" was later covered by Rod Stewart, Barry Manilow, Newton, and is heard on certain Geico Auto Insurance commercials. Others that have benefited from Dan's songwriting talents include George Benson, Jeffrey Osborne, Tammy Wynette, Celine Dion, and Tina Turner, but Dan Hill scored another Top Ten hit of his own with "Can't We Try," a duet with Vonda Sheppard. He has broke the top-40 a few times more on his own in the Billboard Adult Contemporary charts since then, but this 1976 LP, titled "Hold On" represents Dan Hill as a composer & singer on the verge of a big breakthrough. Selections are: Proposal; I've Been Alone; City Madness; Rain; Phonecall; All Alone In California; Question Marks In Time; Caroline; Canada; and the title track, Hold On. Backing musicians include: John Capek; Brian Russell; Don Potter; Jorn Andersen; Robert Boucher; Richard Homme; Larry Londin; Robert Mann; Matthew McCauley; Fred Mollin; Eric Robinson; Catherine Smith; Tom Szczesniak. This is an Original 1976 pressing on 20th CENTURY RECORDS (526), with gatefold cover that open to the complete song lyrics. There is some minor color rubbing he the jacket, as well as a 4" separation to the center portion of the top seam. The lower right corner is clipped off, but otherwise the jacket appears ok. The record labels & playing surfaces appear bright, clean, and overall beautiful near MINT!
