When Was The Last Time You Played This Album?

Sea Level “Cats on the Coast.”

Today’s Cool Album of the Day is Sea Level, “Cats on the Coast.”

This 1978 was Sea Level’s second of what would be, five studio albums.

Kind of an Allman Brothers spin off, but not really. They were a little a little more ‘jazzy fusiony’ than the brothers.

Three of the band members did play with the Allman Brothers at one time or another.

Main founding member, Chuck Leavell was on keyboards. Jai Johanny “Jaimoe” Johanson, drums. Lamar Williams, bass and Jimmy Nalls, guitar.

The most well known track on the album was ‘That’s Your Secret.’

Lamar Williams died of Agent Orange related cancer in 1983. Chuck Leavell has toured with the Rolling Stones for years.

‘That’s Your Secret’ peaked at #50 on the Billboard US Singles Chart.

‘Cats on the Coast’ peaked at #31 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart.
