Profile Short lived melodic rock band from Toronto, Ontario, formed by Hughie Leggat after his departured from  A Foot In Cold Water in 1978. The album recorded at Master’s Workshop in Toronto and produced by Eddie Leonetti know for his work with bands like Angel, Skyhooks, Network and Karen Lawrence.

Private Eye is a quartet of bass, drums and two guitars reaching for a healthy rock sound with a touch of ballad-it is. Hughie Leggat’s vocals have matured to a point of raw finesse still clinging to the old “Hold On I’m Coming” and “Foxy Lady” phrasings of his yesterday. Not bad then, even better now. Somehow the production, clean but weak, hasn’t captured the total energy of the band. 

The band after some live gigs split up in 1981. Check this out if you like bands like A Foot in Coldwater, Leggat, The Mississippi Hippies, Lords of London, Nucleus.
