al Riggs has (so far) put out three of my favorite albums of 2016; it's rare for someone to be both so prolific and so utterly talented. On record his arrangements are often complicated, but even in a solo setting, the songs carry all the weight that needs to be carried.
Weren't these three all on different sides of the great rock/pop wars of the 80s? Desperate times make for strange bedfellows, I guess -- which might also explain what Rick Springfield was doing playing a fundraiser/party at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. And he's Australian!
