Notes (****): Banks set to work on his debut solo album while also recording the third Flash album Out of Our Hands. Flash bandmates Bennett and Hough guested, although Bennett subsequently said they never got paid for the sessions. Guests include John Wetton of King Crimson and Asia fame—they just spelled his name wrong on the album sleeve. (HP, 3 Dec 2005; thanks to Scott R Burrows and John Sowalsky for providing info)
