The Adventures - Theodore And Friends (1985)

“Organized in London by vocalist Terry Sharpe and guitarist Pat Gribben (formerly of Belfast's Starjets), the Adventures also comprised vocalist Eileen Gribben, guitarist Gerard "Spud" Murphy, bassist Tony Ayre and drummer Pat Crowder. The group signed to Chrysalis and released their self-titled debut album in 1984 (Theodore & Friends was a re-packaged version for the U.S. market), but didn't find success until four years later, after moving to Elektra Records. The 1988 album Sea of Love contained the modest hit "Broken Land" but failed to move much beyond that. After another album the following year, Trading Secrets with the Moon, the Adventures drifted into obscurity.” (From AllMusicGuide).
Released back in 1985,'Theodore and Friends' is an album that proves The Adventures were one of the most underrated bands around at that time. Feel The Raindrops is absolutely gorgeous, but all the album is filled with quality tunes . This album is really a hidden gem from the 80’s.
