“Life In The City” is the first and final LP by sextet Split Image released in ’88 and also available on CD on the tiny Cali label Bentley Records.
On the musical point you’ll easily distinguish that the band was influenced by various styles including rap, pop and soul obviously. It’s quite synthy in spite of its late year of release.
Most of you might already know “Toss It Up” as the main single of the LP, including an outstanding instrumental version on the flip…but have you ever listened to “I Need You to Be Here“? If not just play the soundclip right away and you’ll know what we’re talking about!
