Dan Seals. Won’t be Blue Anymore. Sniff sniff, rethrift. Though I’ve got to say this album cover is fan-tastic! I’m going to be generous today as I catch up on a few days worth of records and say the album rethrifts but the cover makes our TOP 20 album cover art category! Having said that ~ I’m not wondering if I’ve already gone over the 20? lol. I’ll check tomorrow.
An aside ~ our move went splendidly and we have now moved from the small island over to the big island of Vancouver Island. I’m a “valley girl” once again! The hi fi, speakers and records have a lovely new home in the living room, under the tv. Ready to rock. Now having organized the records back into the shelving unit I am reminded that I have about 5 months of records to listen to / review and decide to keep in only 3 months!! Any suggestions blog readers, as to how to go about it? double feature days? a day of 45s again?
Now to this country dude! ~ The album is country sadness but handsome fella. From wiki:

After the duo disbanded, Seals began a solo career in country music. Throughout the 1980s and into the early 1990s, he released 16 studio albumsand charted more than 20 singles on the country charts. Eleven of his singles reached Number One: “Meet Me in Montana” (with Marie Osmond), “Bop” (also a No. 42 pop hit), “Everything That Glitters (Is Not Gold)“, “You Still Move Me“, “I Will Be There“, “Three Time Loser“, “One Friend“, “Addicted“, “Big Wheels in the Moonlight“, “Love on Arrival“, and “Good Times“.
