Profile Russell Hitchcock is the self-titled debut album by Russell Hitchcock, best known as the lead singer of Air Supply, released in 1988. The album didn’t reach the charts, though singles “The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore” and “Where Did The Feeling Go?” had a minor recognition.

This would be the only album by Russell Hitchcock as a solo artist, although later on he released a number of singles, the most famous being “Swear to Your Heart” from the film Arachnophobia. Others include “Russell Hitchcock & Judith Durham from the I Am An Australian Album”, “De Todos Modos” (Russell Hitchcock and Ednita Nazario) – from the album Super Exitos 1991 and “Is It You (Russell Hitchcock & Rita Coolidge duet) – 1995”.

Of note also is the track “The River Cried”, which would also be featured on the debut solo disc from former Scandal vocalist/songwriter Patty Smyth (the version heard here is 12 seconds shorter). Definitely something you will not regret. The only grouse is that there are not enough songs by Hitchcock!
