Now reduced to a three-piece (John Murphy
, Jeff Murphy
, and Gary Klebe), the band recorded their fifth album independently in their home studio in Illinois. A pleasant though unexceptional album, Silhouette
is a softer, more keyboard-dominated effort. Without an American outlet (they left Elektra prior to recording), this album was only available in Europe until the band's own label, Black Vinyl Records, reissued it in the late '80s.
