"Waste of Time" is taken from Al Corley's 2nd album, "Riot of Color" on Mercury Records in 1986.
Riot of Color was produced by, Helmut Zerlett & also features players...guitarist, Louie Lepore & bassist, Rosko Gee.
The Riot of Color album is much less synth & drum machine oriented etc... as Al Corley's 1st album, "Square Rooms" & this time on Riot of Color,the groove is much more acoustic with a very tight & top notch band.
Like with Al Corley's 1st album, Square Rooms, the Riot of Color album was a world wide smash in 1986 except in the U.S.A.
As with the Al's 1st album, Mercury Records in the States again, chose to release the "Riot of Color" album with a total different album cover than the rest of the world. A rare instance of a European improvement on the album cover over the American album cover. The Riot of Color album is worse in the States than the European cover.
Mercury Records didnt really promote Al Corley's "Square Rooms" album at all in the USA nor Al's 2nd album on Mercury called, "Riot Of Color" & never even released Al's 3rd album in the USA.
What's interesting is that Al Corley was a musician way before he was an actor,but I guess Mercury Records forgot that & thought he was just another TV actor trying to be a musician....
