~~ Steve Allen and Ron Flynt followed the power pop path blazed by fellow Tulsa natives Phil Seymour and Dwight Twilley when they moved in 1977 to Los Angeles, where they formed (with Mike Gallo) what has universally become one of the most highly-regarded power pop/new wave outfits of the era, 20/20. How highly-regarded? OK, this for most people unknown band, but their debut album is going somewhere! In the late 70's, LA was the headquarters for much of the country's punk influenced new wave and pop. From the Quick to the Last to the Plimsouls to 20/20, there was no shortage of great rocking pop coming from California. 20/20 was perhaps one of the best and nowhere did they shine brighter than on their debut.

Best Tracks:
"Yellow Pills", "Cheri" and "She's An Obsession" and yellow pills might be considered a classic of 70's power pop and new wave, and with good reason!
