1979 Baby’O – You’ve Got It

baby-o-1979Baby’O You’ve Got It is  a one-album assemblage of top musicians, based in L.A, produced by the founder of the discotheque Baby’O, in Acapulco, Rafael Villafane

According to Rafael: Steve Lukather played on the record but the solo (In The Forest) you mention was played by Kevin Clark. Kevin was an engineer on the record who also happened to play guitar. Lukather and others took solos but i didn’t like them so I asked Kevin to do a take , just for fun, and that was the one we ended up keeping. Ed Greene and Abe Laboriel played on the record as well. I hope this answers your questions satisfactorily.
