City Kids is one of Spyro Gyra's best cd's that they have ever released. It was released back in 1983. The 80's, in my opinion, were the height of Spyro Gyra's career so far. A lot of their best and most memorable music took place in this decade, especially the early 1980's. City Kids is no exception. All of the 8 tracks on this cd are near perfection and are played with extreme talent. Every player contributes something to a song to make it sound very good. This album was recorded when Spyro Gyra was just getting on their way, and their sound hadn't changed much. Anyway, this is a great recording.
