-Extremely Poor Advertising Campaign
-Released In The Center Of The Disco Era
-Hardly Any Copies (It's never good when there's more promotional copies than public release copies)
-Eric's vocals slightly weakened the album
Even though the album failed and put a end to the careers of two wonderful men in the music (Craig surfacing 14 years later in Little Feat) it showed what the two were capable of, and had it been given a chance, my guesses are it would have been extremely well acclaimed.
