Album Description
Available in:
Goodnight L.A. is the eighth studio album by British melodic rock band Magnum, released in 1990 by Polydor.
Polydor had plans to break Magnum in America and Goodnight L.A. was an attempt to refine Magnum's sound for the American market.[citation needed]
Most of the material was already written and arranged, at least in demo form, and was taken to Los Angeles and Vancouver to find an American producer. Keith Olsen was suggested because of the success of his work on Whitesnake's 1987. Tony Clarkin, the band's guitarist and usually the sole songwriter, then invited co-writers such as Russ Ballard, Jim Vallance and David Cassidy's wife Sue Shifrin to collaborate on songwriting duties. Other songs called "The Rock" and "On That Day" were retitled or dropped. "Come Back Running" was recorded as a demo version, but it was never released.
The rest of the band flew to Los Angeles in 1990 to record at Keith Olsen's studios, "Goodnight L.A." The album was originally titled Born to Be King but was eventually named after the studio.
Three singles were planned, "Rockin’ Chair" being the lead single, then "Heartbroke and Busted;" the third single, "No Way Out," was cancelled because Polydor was disappointed with the chart ranking of "Heartbroke and Busted."
