The Power Station: The Power Station (Capitol)

Jeffrey Morgan, Creem, July 1985

BEFORE WE BEGIN, I'd like to take a few seconds to point out how you can tell if a band really lords it over their record company. The first indication can be found in the copyright and patent notice located in small print on the back of an album cover. If the C&P are in the name of the record company, then you know that the band isn't Boss. However, if the C&P info is credited to a name other than that of the record company, chances are that the group holds the C&P themselves and, pulling a lot of weight, lease it to the record company for distribution.
