I remember when you played it during Nexx's set at Firefest too Fran! Great song, and you really did it justice :-)

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 :-(

I'm having the same problem with a song called "We Get All" by some band called Sale, after I heard it being played on Munich's Hardest Hits. Tried googling, tried Amazon, and I was amazed to find there's not a single reference to it on the whole of the Interweb!

I emailed the organiser's to say the same thing (if more people let them know, maybe they'll listen). Seeing Robin Beck sing on stage with a skull/portcullis backdrop was a weird sight! I always think of LA at night, or palm trees, convertibles and long desert highways when I think of AOR

Can't believe this :-( Always wanted to see The Outfield at Firefest, or at a gig SOMEWHERE in the UK, as they're London lads, and now I won't get the chance. I'm glad John had the chance to complete the Replay album, although it must have been tough for him. RIP John.

Yep, got it. Really like it - has a kind of Pink Floyd, "Wish You Were Here" feel to it.

"Funny" vocals, no keyboards, a bit angrier and less melodic ;-)

No, it dates from about 1979 - between the "Eve" and "Turn of a Friendly Card" albums. The title "Sicilian Defence" comes from a chess move, and relates to the renegotiation of their contract that APP were trying to resolve with Arista. They released Eve, and the Sicilian Defence was rushed out as a contractual obligation, so that APP could talk to other record comp

Ah yes, the mythical Sicilian Defense album. This is the album the guys made to get them out of their contract with Arista. I wonder what the exec's thought when they first heard it? :-)

Hi Ramsay - well my Mum & Dad live in Ellesmere Port, so the Echo Arena would be an idea, but at the minute it looks like the last date at Wembley with some workmates (and maybe Cardiff too if the finances work out!)

Thanks for this Ramsay. I've never seen Bryan Adams live before either, and the 30th anniversary of Reckless is the perfect time to put that right.

As a change from some of the threads below about new bands being championed which may or may NOT be AOR :-) I thought I'd ask if anyone's found any recent output from well-established popular artists that we reckon would fit into the melodic rock/AOR genre, but it's flown under the radar because it wasn't by a traditional AOR or new scandi band? For instance, Mike Oldfield has a new album out
