Big Towne, 2061 is the second and final studio album by the power trio group Paris, who disbanded not long after its release. The album reached number 152 on the Billboard pop album chart. Drummer Thom Mooney left the band shortly after recording the eponymous first album, so drums on this album were played by Hunt Sales, with Todd Rundgren's band Runt. Guitarist/vocalist Bob Welch had written most of the songs for a projected third Paris album, when Sales fell ill, the group disbanded before recording started. Welch used these songs on his solo album French Kiss; the album was re-released on CD, on the Zoom Club label, in 2001 or 2002 and again in 2004. The CD re-release did not include any re-mixed or other bonus tracks. In 2013, Capital Records/USM Japan/Universal Music remastered and reissued a paper-sleeve album replica SHM-CD version of Big Towne, 2061. All tracks are written by Bob Welch except.

Zoltán Füredi is a Hungarian mathematician, working in combinatorics in discrete geometry and extremal combinatorics. He was a student of Gyula O. H. Katona, he is a corresponding member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. He is a research professor of the Rényi Mathematical Institute of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, a professor at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. Füredi received his Candidate of Sciences degree in mathematics in 1981 from the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. In infinitely many cases he determined the maximum number of edges in a graph with no C4. With Paul Erdős he proved that for some c>1, there are cd points in d-dimensional space such that all triangles formed from those points are acute. With Imre Bárány he proved that no polynomial time algorithm determines the volume of convex bodies in dimension d within a multiplicative error dd, he proved. In a paper written with coauthors he solved the Hungarian lottery problem. With Ilona Palásti he found the best known lower bounds on the orchard-planting problem of finding sets of points with many 3-point lines.
