"Welcome to A Street Called Straight, where the sounds echo from a time so long ago...well, it was like another lifetime ago. The street on which Jeff Eubank lived was already slipping away when this album was released in 1983. Those golden-hued 'good vibes' from the 60s and 70s seemed much more finite in the early days of the 1980s, encroached upon by the creeping darkness of changing times. A Street Called Straight was a cry into the darkness -- man can live and flourish. A Street Called Straight is a beautiful slice of second-wave album-oriented rock, unfolding a series of peaceful, easy feelings, articulated with carefully crafted music and lyrics. How is it that a landlocked creature could come up with such beachy sounds, such cheerfully extraterrestrial visions? Jeff Eubank channeled the sunshine and moonlight of southern California via Kansas City, Missouri. He'd been playing music since the mid-70s and had finally gone out to L.A. and played music there before returning to lay his songs down in familiar lower-midwestern stomping grounds where studio rates were cheaper. You hear what you hear in the music. Some of the names that listeners have been so far reminded of include Fred Neil, Al Stewart, David Crosby, Kenny Rankin and a fellow traveler of the early 80s private press highway, Bobb Trimble."
