Notes: David Paich and Steve Porcaro had helped out on Lodgic's Nomadic Sands album, and it appears that Billy Sherwood returned the favor here. Not too surprisingly, I find Sherwood's track to be the highlight of this album. (Ray Riethmeier)

Jeff Porcaro died in August 1992, aged 38, of a heart attack caused by an allergic reaction to a pesticide he had sprayed in his yard. Kingdom of Desire is dedicated to his memory. (HP, 23 Jul 2005)
