Gary Myrick & The Figures - Self Titled (1980)

You can't help but have a soft spot for this gem.  Zero dud songs - just pure pop from beginning to end.  It really is a pop/rock classic.  This is his first release from Gary and he achieved minor success later with a song from the Valley Girl OST.  The last song 'Deep In The Heartland' oozes pure class and puts all rivals to shame.  Why this is not spoken about more is beyond me.  This release is the LP version but it has been re-released on ceedee with extra track.  Betcha you chase down all his other stuff!
