Thanks for the replies so far. I've got Glen Burtnick, Marc Jordan, Device and '90125'. In fact, 90125 was the album that first got me into AOR, but what an album to do it. I think I've had it on cassette, vinyl, CD, remastered CD, VHS and DVD over the years! There doesn't seem to be much around at the moment, but I really like the Ivory Tower Project track - thanks Shade!

First bass player I saw that used his Rickenbacker as the lead instrument in a song. Really nice bloke to chat with too - hoping for the best for him.

Probably the most "mid-80's" style of AOR, characterised by big keyboards and mega production. The song I most think sums this up is: Mr. Mister - Uniform of Youth Which bands of today do you think are carrying the torch for this type of melodic rock?

Well, it's been the first thing I look at when I switch my PC on (at work!) each morning for over 10 years now - and I haven't been sacked yet! I can't thank Andrew enough for all the work he's put into the site over the years, and all the music I've discovered and bought because of it. He's a miracle I tells ya! Darren

First Eric Woolfson, and now Chris Rainbow. http://ultimateclassicrock.com/chris-rainbow-dies/ Sad - I grew up listening to his amazing vocals on tracks like "Turn of a Friendly Card', and "Days Are Numbers". Days Are Numbers - Alan Parsons Project

Just been listening to "Queen of the Ocean", the only CD I own by Lana Lane, for the first time in years, and forgot what a varied, interesting album it is. Bits of AOR, prog, soft ballads with soaring finales....great stuff. She seems to have quite a back catalogue - can anyone please give me any recommendations? Having looked at my last bank statement I'm going to have to be a bit

Well, HRH AOR put Tesla on the bill, so apparently that makes them AOR

Just wondering if people are starting to put their 2015 gigs into their new diaries yet? No Firefest of course, sadly, but these are the ones I've got planned - I'd be interested to see other people's suggestions, so I can add to my list :-) Feb 1 - JEFFERSON STARSHIP (Exeter) Mar 12-15 - HRH AOR (Wales) Mar 18 - ALAN PARSONS PROJECT (London) May 1 - FM/ ROMEO'S (Bristol) May 2 -

Can't wait for this, and it'd be great to see them over in the UK live (HRH AOR maybe?)

However that does mean flying Ryanscare which I vowed I'd never do again after my last experience, and also because I think their CEO is a complete wazzock of the highest order

Andrew has a really nice voice on that track. I guessed it was the record company who suggested a new frontman, but I don't know.

What do you think of the 1984 version of "Rainy Day in London"? Completely different, but I like it just as much as the ITS version, if not more..... Boulevard - Rainy Day in London (1984)

Vital Signs is brilliant - although if "Backstreet Love Affair" made it on to there as well, it'd be nigh on perfect.

Great stuff!! As you say - would fit nicely into any 1982-1985 AOR compilation mixtape! Makes a change from all the MHR releases lately.

Sounds like you're looking for hi-tech AOR with lots of synths? Munich's Hardest Hits play a lot of the genre, and I'm guessing you'll like the 'True Blue' album from Shell and the Ocean. Mr. Mister's first CD of course.... Others off the top of my head.... The Fixx - One Thing Leads To Another Wang Chung - Dance Hall Days The Arrows - Meet Me In The Middle, and Say It Isn't True Urge

I logged on to the BBC News website this morning and saw the news. BBC News At first it just didn't register - it felt so surreal. Now that it's had time to sink in, I just feel truly saddened that we've lost him. An immense talent, with a 1-in-a million voice, and he came across as a hugely likeable but humble man as well. RIP Jimi :-(
