Walter Rossi’s third studio album came a year later in the form of Diamonds for the Kid. With the singles "Down By The Waterfront," "High Stakes," and "Sniffin' The Breeze, Feelin' The Freeze," and other tracks like "Dear Mom" - the ode to his mother who'd passed away when he was a teen, and the haunting "Silent I Wait," the album was his third straight effort to go gold.
