"Manzarek formed a band called Nite City, a quintet which featured former Rare Earth guitarist Paul Warren and Blondie bassist-to-be Nigel Harrison. Their self-titled 1977 album generally consists of fairly typical mainstream rock songs, built around -- and distinguished by -- Manzarek's engaging keyboard-playing. The songs were co-written by Manzarek and vocalist Noah James, with Paul Warren and Danny Sugerman sharing credit on a few. Aside from a bit of Morrisonian poetry reading in the title track, you'd probably never know that Nite City was a Doors offshoot. This album was once considered a prototype of west coast new wave, but it's now hard to figure why. The album is listenable but hardly memorable; "Love Will Make You Mellow" and "Bitter Sky Blue" are the standout tracks. Rarebirds Review Page

Newspaper advert for Nite City debut album.
From a warehouse find, this is a new, unplayed Stereo/Mono promo copy , in its original factory sleeve. Here's an interesting 1970's rarity... this group was formed by Ray Manzarek, who was the keyboardist for the Doors. Also in the quintet were former Rare Earth guitarist Paul Warren and Blondie bassist-to-be Nigel Harrison. This track, from the group's first album, is a straight-ahead rocker.
