Today’s Cool Album of the Day(#256 in the Series) is The Babys, Broken Heart.

Broken Heart was the second album by The Babys. It was released in 1977 and contained one of the bands biggest hits, ‘Isn’t It Time.’

It was produced by Ron Nevison. We’ve heard from him quite a few times.  Dave Mason, UFO, Joe Cocker etc.

It peaked at #34 on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart. Tw singles also charted. The previously mentioned ‘Isn’t It Time’ made it to 13. The follow up was ‘Silver Dreams.’ Unfortunately, ‘Silver Dreams’ only made it to #53.

The main Baby was John Waite.  His solo career was even more popular than his Baby’s career.  He would have some big hits. But they wouldn’t be as good.
