BB Gabor: BB Gabor (1980)
The story of BB Gabor is a tragic one. His career seemed to start off well enough, with this debut LP, which got quite a lot of airplay back in the day. The two biggest tracks were Metropolitan Life and Soviet Jewellery. His follow-up record from 1981, which I have never heard, tanked, apparently. In 1990, Gabor committed suicide in his Toronto apartment. That's a sad end.
