    Happy 40th Anniversary to Randy Meisner (1978 )!! (a day late)

    After 17 years of performing and recording in bands, Randy set off on a solo career. The album didn’t sell well or place in the top 200 Billboard album chart (it peaked at #204), but the song “Bad Man” got some exposure when it was part of the soundtrack for the film, FM.

    This is one of my favorite tracks from this album; J.D. Souther sings backing vocals.

    I love this album; Randy’s vocals are sweet and soulful.

    Delilah, wasn’t this album released on June 1, or is that bad info...

    Hey girl, how are you?

    Wasn’t it Love Me or Leave Me Alone that was released June 1?

    ITA about Randy’s lovely vocals.

    I’m well, thank you. And you? Happy 4th of July!

    I was looking at the Wiki entry (notoriously unreliable, of course) for the 1978 album and it says the release date was June 1.

    I’m doing fine too, thanks. And Happy 4th of July!!

    You may be right about the June release date, NMB. I guess I got the July date from the first post of the thread. There is also this source, which is where I found out that the album peaked at #204. See the 1st post at the link.

    A lot of times there's contradictory info out there. I wonder if there is some mention of the release in the Billboard magazine archives or something?

    Regardless, I will say...

    HAPPY 40th birthday!!!

    Always in our hearts, Never forgotten

    Delilah will find it! She’s a wizard with research. I’m still impressed with the article she found on Randy’s 1982-83 tour that he did with no record company support. He was schlepping around in a station wagon.

    But I digress. How sad that the album only got to #204 on the charts. It deserved better.

    There are so many things we don’t know. Why were all but a handful of the 1978 tour dates canceled? I guess it will remain a mystery, like so many things about dear, enigmatic Randy.

    Yes, I bow to Deliliah's skills! I also thought I'd take a page out of Deliliah's book and post my favorite song from the album:

    Thank you, NMB and Soda, you are both too kind. I love “Daughter of the Sky”
