This is one of those original disco oddities that's a trivia-lovers dream. Mascara were a one-shot, studio-only outfit put together by Ensign Records boss Chris Hill. Their members included Luther Vandross, back in the days when the golden-voiced crooner had yet to make it big on his own (or even with Change). The album largely sunk without trace on its original release in 1979, despite opening with a brilliant, soaring disco suite ("See You In L.A"/"Jet Plane Ride"). The album also includes a curious disco cover of Bowie's "Golden Years" (really) and a brilliant, full-throttle stomper in the shape of "Coming Home Baby". Oh, and the model on the cover is none other than Paula Yeates (she of Bob Geldof/The Tube fame).
