For those in the minority who have heard this rare GXV album, what's your favorite song?

Didja know... The studio musicians that played on Washes Whiter Than were hired for this recording?

Since the forum only allows for 10 poll options, if you'd like to vote for the other two:

11. Waiting for You
12. I Believe In You

...just post the name.

This is such a great album all around. I have a feeling that it could have been a big hit if it had gotten a wide release.

After listening to it for the first time it really sounds ok, but it sounds dated even for 1982; This sounds like something that should have come out between 1974-1976.

Either way it sounded very dated for 1982, it was clearly 70's rock & production quality.

I vote for track 12, "I Believe In You". I think this song could have been a huge radio hit, back in the day.

The chorus in "I Believe In You" sounds like it could have been used as a jingle in an AT&T long-distance commercial.
