Bi-Coastal

[bahy-kohs-tl]

Bi-Coastal is an album released in 1980 by Australian singer and songwriter Peter Allen. The album is Allen's most successful and was produced by David Foster who also wrote many of it's songs. The hit "Fly Away", originally by Japanese artist Mariya Takeuchi, was co-written by Foster and Carole Bayer Sager. The title tune co-written by Foster and Tom Keane is said to be about Allen's sexuality but actually referred to the fact that he divided his time between the two coasts of the United States.

"Fly Away" peaked at #55 on the Billboard 200 charts and was his only North American hit as a singer. The album has become a classic with lovers of west coast pop music not because of the songs but for the use of musicians like Toto, Steve Lukather, Jay Graydon and others.
