Life By Night - Glass Walls


Recommended Posts




From Escape Music:

In the mid-eighties Life by Night recorded their debut album with Richie Zito behind the production desk. The songs were melodic AOR with poppy overtones and it was all set to be released when the label at the time just dropped them. It happened so quickly, and as a result this fine album from 1985 never saw the light of day.

Thankfully the debut album was eventually released earlier this year by Escape Music in the form of a numbered limited release (Life by Night ESM355). The band were originally formed by lead vocalist and bassist Tom Croucier, the brother of Ratt bassist Juan Croucier.

Having played in a variety of different groups through years, Tom has been a part of Roger Romeo’s group “Romeo” as well as A&M record’s Bobby Dazzler and Santana.

In 1981 Tom Played on the excellent “Down to the Bone” album in 1981 by Vic Vergat. Tom also played bass on the Scorpions “Blackout” album.

After Life by Night had originally disbanded in the late 80’s Tom Croucier and Gene Black partnered up and began writing new songs. Pat Regan joined and with the addition of Mark Nelson on drums the second Life by Night album “Glass Walls” started to take shape. This is a yet another beautiful example of song-writing and musicianship and worthy of your attention. A great way to end 2021.
