Brian's contribution is "Come Back Home". The sleeve notes say "It's good to see the talented singer/songwriter Brian Spence back with his follow up the debut album "Brothers", which garnered quite a bit of attention a couple of years ago upon it's release. No sophomore jinx here for the artist! "Come Back Home" is a driving and passionate song featuring the impressive vocals of Spence."

The contribution here is "Reputation". The sleeve notes say "Come Back Home" from singer/songwriter Brian Spence, was well received last fall when "Reputation" was released, but unfortunately got caught in the mad crunch of holiday releases. Segue to February 1989, and Polydor's Wynn Jackson relates, "We still feel very strongly that Brian Spence is a one-of-a kind songwriter, singer and rocker. "Reputation" should turn some heads when it hits the CD player."
