HOME OF THE BRAVE!!!! Killer tune and probably my fave of theirs. When I last saw them back in 2010 with J.W. this was the closing track of their set list... and boy did they nail it!!

Maybe just coincidence but the spotlights could be a reference to their 2008 Live CD "Rockin'Shibuya 2007" while it could be argued the red lights (lower right) stand for "Live In Japan" (1990) :-) Would be interesting to hear what the guy who did the artwork (someone in the band?) says...

Thanks Andrew! Unfortunately it seems there's just the D/L version available on his site Www.bjarnelanghoff.com I thought there was an extra site for the CD maybe as the news items says "CDs can be purchased from www.langhoff.us". Strange, that nobody else seems to be interested... no comments whatsoever.

Have been looking forward to finally hearing his CD for quite some time now. And I have to say I'm really impressed. Great mix of vintage Westcoast and Pop Rock all wrapped up in a fresh production. Even reminds me of Mr Mister a bit. Unfortunately the purchase link for the physical CD doesn't work. Typo? Andrew, could you please check this? Cheers Ralfster

I'm also sure pretty I've heard that voice before but can't pinpoint it. Judging by the accent I would bet my left arm (well even my right) that it's a Swedish guy. Song has a bit of a Tommy Denander production vibe... and I mean that in a very positive way :-)) Great AOR!

Great stuff indeed! Could it be this is only available as download or is there there a physical CD available elsewhere to buy?

Hi guys, Need your recommendations on CD shops in London. I'll be there for a short business trip over the weekend. Especially would like to know if there's still any shops around specializing in AOR / Melodic Rock. Also 2nd hand shops with a good selection are of interest of course. Cheers Ralfster

These have always struck me. Can't be coincidence. Just not sure who ripped off whom as both were released in 1990... Both cool CDs in their own right, although I personally prefer the NUMBER NINE. What a shame they went the cover band route later on!

Thanks Granicus, I'm actually staying at a hotel in Notting Hill so that Record & Tape Exchange shop will be definitely on my list :-) I'm also pretty sure you left some stuff for me as I'm not solely interested in rock but also Pop, Prog, Westcoast...you name it. Is it at Notting Hill Gate? If so I just drove by one hour ago. It had a yellow sign but was seeling books and other stuff as well

Hi guys, I'm off to London for a business trip tomorrow morning and if time allows in between appointments I'd like to look around for CDs. I'm sure you guys on here could recommend some cool (2nd hand) CD shops in the greater London area. Preferably those with a real good assortment. I read somewhere recently that it might even be worth stepping into HMV as they have a good bargain bin se

Scott, which version of "Freedom Rock" does sound "a little better"? I'm assuming it isn't the European version, right? I know that the Asian version does have two bonus track but heard that the European version sounds better? Is there yet another version available? Cheers Ralf

Always loved the SOLEIL MOON CD! Awesome Westcoast AOR somewhere between BRIDGE 2 FAR, MICHAEL W. SMITH and CHICAGO.

No, you're perfectly right! Guess they were a French band (with English names printed on the cover though). Mixed by Armand Volker (FREIHEIT producer) in Munich back in 1986. I wonder if more as of yet unreleased songs were produced back then... I mean, this sounds really good! Maybe one of the specialist Re-issue labels would like to investigate futher. Cheers Ralfster

I'm pretty sure that's not their real names printed on the cover. Most probably it's a French band you thought their full blown AOR image would only be complete with English names... Just a guess of course. The only name I'm familiar with is mixing engineer Armand Volker, a german producer who did all the popular (M√úNCHNER) FREIHEIT albums in the 80's. Producer J.M. Hauser must be Jean-Mar

Does anybody know where I could possibly get issues 1 and 2 of that mag? I just bought the latest issue while being on a business trip to London last week and I'd love to get those back issues somehow. The official online ordering option that was featured on the frontpage a couple days ago just features issues 3 and 4 unfortunately. I've just ordered #3 there (for £ 8.99 incl. postage to Germany

Thanks a lot mate, exactly what I was looking for! :-) I won't have too much time anyway so I'll probably go to Tottenham Court Road and check out the Music And Video Exchange first and Sister Ray afterwards. Cheers Ralf

Hi guys, I'll be on a business trip in Bromley/ London next weekend and if time allows I'd like to check out some 2nd hand stores and / or flea markets. I'm sure you guys can recommend a few shops which are open on Sunday (have to work all Saturday unfortunately). I'll stay in Bromley but I'm pretty sure there's nothing in sort of CD shops out there so London downtown recommendations are perfe

Leon, I'm sure all they every released officially are these two singles (both available on CD but very hard to find). A pity really as all tracks on these singles are high quality AOR. There is a offical band tribute site somewhere on the net where a few other unreleased tracks are mentioned. I can't find it right now but I'm sure a google search will lead you there. Cheers Ralf
