Released in 1977, Topaz’s single self-titled CBS Documents album is principally kept in mind for the resumés of its presented players and assisting cast. Bassist/vocalist Rob Stoner experienced made an appearance on Bob Dylan’s 1975-1976 Rolling Thunder Revue tour; he, subsequently, created Topaz with guitarist Billy Mix and vocalist Jasper Hutchison. Several notable titles popped up in the credits: percussionist Luther Rix and drummer/pianist Howard Wyeth experienced performed, respectively, on Bob Dylan’s Desire and Hard Rainfall albums; and Journey’s Aynsley Dunbar offered additional percussive muscle mass. Mick Ronson, previously of David Bowie’s music group, also made an appearance on piano (not really acoustic guitar). These mixed efforts led to an album filled with Crazy West-fueled recommendations to cowboys, bettors, and outlaws which also produced no industrial splash. That remaining Mix and Stoner absolve to work once again with Dylan on his 1978 globe tour, while Hutchison graced John Cipoliina’s Raven recording (1980).
