Million Dollar Legs (album)

From Allan Holdsworth Information Center

This album is a major letdown from “Believe It”, with string sections and vocals, and precious little of the raw energy of its predecessor. Someone called this album “I Don’t Believe It”! There are a few notable guitar moments, but this album is a letdown overall.

Williams and Holdsworth went together to check out Newton on a big-band gig at Carnegie Hall. The pianist in the group happened to be Alan Pasqua, who made a favorable impression on both of them. Williams called a rehearsal at S.I.R. Studios in Manhattan, and a band was born. “We started rehearsing new tunes and then a few weeks later we were playing at the Bottom Line,” says Holdsworth. “Shortly after, we did Believe It, then did a couple of tours and followed up with Million Dollar Legs.”
