Great interview! Makes me appreciate (even more) just how difficult things are in the scene at the moment and the efforts you go to. The site was called the 'AOR & Hard Rock Hot Spot' when it first started, wasn't it? (Or am I thinking of a different one?) I remember reading that avidly during my first year at Uni in 1997!

Very strong album. Especially like the Martin Bros co-writes on that one. Maybe involve Robbie LaBlanc in the songwriting next time round to give it more of a personal feel?

I was going to wait to listen to the single in the context of the album, but finally caved in this morning and gave the video a click... Wow - fantastic stuff! You can really hear the Gary Hughes influence, right to the fore! Could easily be an unreleased TEN track! (Incidentally, did Gary use any old material for this album or was it all written from scratch?) Sometimes I think writing for ot

Great review, Andrew! (Marc said on Facebook they also did some other tracks which may appear at some point - Voices of the Heart and Landscapes, included).

Speaking of Whitesnake, I had completely forgotten until today that Journey's Jonathan Cain performed (additional) keyboards on a single version of 'Give Me All Your Love Tonight'. Nice bit of trivia there!

Not to mention his work as part of Big Big Train - seeing them in London in August - can't wait! Nick's great! He also played on Genesis' Calling All Stations album, toured with Circe de Soleil, and two Cosmograf albums, for the prog fans amongst you! I've got one of his solo albums somewhere, but haven't listened to it yet.

Great, thanks Mario! Ordered myself a copy, but on behalf of everyone who hasn't been able to get one, it would be awesome if you could see your way to a re-print and wider distribution. Obviously, it's a very emotive issue for those fans wanting to commemorate Jimi and Fergie. Keep up the good work!

Now that Frontiers Fest has come and gone, is there any news about the wider availability of the Jamison/Frederiksen tribute CD? Andrew, could you discreetly give the label a prod and see if there's any info? Thanks! Danny.

Hi Andrew, Just stumbled across one of the MRCD compilations I'd forgotten about and rediscovered the Jim Peterik track 'My War'. Any idea what happened to the (proposed) solo album it was written for? (I know 'Hearts Are Gonna Roll' was an outtake from the Crossroads Moment sessions). Thanks, - Danny.

CANNOT. WAIT. Span both Vital Signs and Jimi Jamison - Crossroads Moment today. Damn, I wish he and Jim had had a chance to do a sequel. That's a bloody great album and Jim's best work since Survivor, IMO (closely followed by POL's s/t).

One of my favourite live albums ever is Magnum - The Spirit (Live). Songs which, to me, sit flat on the albums, leap into live performed live. Plus, the live arrangements breathe fresh life into old staples like Kingdom of Madness. Check it out.

One of my favourite Survivor songs - never got the recognition it deserved at the time it was originally released and great to see H.E.A.T paying it its dues.

I like both bands and I don't personally object to backing tracks as long as all members of the band are playing their respective parts live as well. Most melodic rock stuff is SO densely layered and arranged, that it's simply impossible to recreate that wall of sound live with just 5 members, and I'd rather hear something that approaches the full sound of the album than something raw and str

Paul Hodson (Hard Rain, Magnum, Ten, Hodson) played on them with Pete, I believe. Have a feeling that John Parr might have been involved as well (they both appear on John's Man With a Vision album which I believe was recorded around the same time) but can't confirm this.
