Jay Gruska – Maxus (Warner Brothers Records)
Songwriters – Jay and various
This band had a relatively short life but has somehow endured for a couple of decades with a small but loyal international fanbase. Band members were:Robbie Buchanan-Keyboards / Michael Landau-Guitars / Doane Perry-Drums / Mark Leonard-Bass and I played keyboards and sang Lead Vocals. I had, and continue to have great respect and admiration for these guys and appreciate the great time we had making this record. Interestingly, we had to make this record twice. We did an entire version with Stewart Levine producing for a subsidiary of A&M records, when that record company was having some problems we got a deal with Warner Brothers Records and I found myself re-teamed with Michael Omartian who had produced my first solo album several years prior.
RECORD SALES WERE IN THE ‘DOZENS AND DOZENS’–ALTHOUGH IT HAS JUST BEEN REISSUED ON iTUNES… SO SALES COULD GO INTO THE…….UM….HUNDREDS?
