The Power Station ‎– The Power Station (1985)

The Power Station is the debut album by the namesake English/American supergroup, produced by Bernard Edwards and released in 1985 on Parlophone/Capitol. On this release, the band consists of vocalist Robert Palmer, guitarist Andy Taylor, bassist John Taylor, and drummer Tony Thompson.

Conceived as a side-project while the two Taylor’s were on break from Duran Duran, the album became a huge commercial success with two transatlantic hit singles. Before promotions had wrapped, Palmer departed and the project was viewed as a one-off until the nameplate was resurrected for one further album in 1996.

A1. “Some Like It Hot” (5:05)
A2. “Murderess” (4:17)
