All the things that used to mean a lot to me

Daryl Hall & John Oates - Album cover
Daryl Hall & John Oates is the self titled album from 1975. Their fourth album and the first to be released by RCA. It also titled the Silver Album by fans. They managed to crsystalize their well-know philadelphia soul sound as we used to know from them after a disappointing album produced by Todd Rundgren which tried to move them into a sort of rock. A style that doesn't fit them.
Sara Smile - single
 This album is produced by Christopher Bond who will produce more albums for them throughout their career. Besides their emotional soul songs like "Nothing At All" which is one of my favourites from them we also got "Gino (The Manager)" (about their manager Tommy Mottola) and the closer "Soldering," a cover of Stanley Beckford's reggae hit. The hit single "Sara Smile" about Daryl's girlfriend Sara Allen.
