Label: Mustard Records
Catalog#: M 1003
Format: Vinyl, LP Album
Released: 1980
Country: Canada
Genre: AOR / Blue Eyed Soul
Duration: 00:36:17

• Formed in 1979, this Edmonton band came out of the cabaret dance scene as evidenced by their groove-oriented, hook-laden recordings. Footloose released one album and several singles, which were recorded at Damon Studios for independent Mustard Records (distributed by RCA in Canada). The group scored a Top10 hit in Canada with the ballad «Leaving For Maui». Follow-up singles kept the band busy but Feehan left to pursue a solo career in 1982 and Footloose eventually split up that year. Tim Feehan would go on to a successful three albums solo career and is now a producer for the likes of 1980’s teen idol, Tiffany, in Los Angeles. (jam.canoe.ca).
