...Julio and Ardian, "In the Precious Age" isn't a bad place to start for further investigation of Mari's talent. There's also a pretty good concert DVD from the same era where she pulls off key songs from these US recordings nicely with her Japanese live band.

That's Mari Hamada in sessions for her "In the Precious Age" album (1987). It features some cool songs. The mostly Japanese lyrics with occasional English phrases take some getting used to, though.

Thanks for posting this, Peter - this was new to me, as well. It's interesting to hear that the songs were actually quite different in terms of arrangements, lyrics as well as structure as late as this (late '87), so I'm assuming Dirk Steffens had significant input into both as producer of the debut album. Also, while I definitely recognize Freddy Laurence/Sherer and Math Shiverow, there's

I've yet to buy any of Music On CD's titles, but I'm under the impression that they don't remaster their releases. Can anyone confirm or correct me on this?

Hi, Ken! I believe I have a vinyl rip somewhere of the two songs that Mark sings on. If you PM me your email adress, I'd be happy to send you wave or MP3 files of those. Geir

As doggy points out, Rivera was in Tycoon and he sings lead vocals on two of the songs on the band's self-titled debut album. The vocals, both lead and harmonies, are excellent throughout on "Tycoon", but with "Mutt" Lange manning the board, that won't surprise anyone. :-)

Robert Sarzo's style was certainly often more noodly than Doug Aldrich's lead work on "Slave to the Thrill", but I can't say it bothered me much in general. Doug Aldrich, on the other hand, was never much better than he is on "Slave to the Thrill" in my humble opinion, although that's probably down to that particular LP being much more to musical tastes than Mr. Aldrich's late

While "Slave to the Thrill" is the more professional album in just about every sense, I thought Hurricane had more of an individual sound and the quirkier concept on "Over the Edge", so the latter remains my personal favourite. The lower secondary school band I was in was even named after the album and we played a cover of "I'm on to You", so that's highly I rated

Hi, and thanks for sharing this! It's a very nice interview and hardly even Ace Frehley can rival that cackle of Gilbert's - crazy! :-)

Here is Stargazer's fourth video from "The Sky Is the Limit". It's a slower, moodier song than the title track, but the Dokken influence certainly shows here, I think! There's also a fifth video out now. "Turn Me On Forever" is arguably more of a heavied up blues rock tune, but I guess the verses aren't a million miles away from those of "What Keeps Me Loving You"

I got the Japanese version of this, and its main selling point is that it features demo versions of all the first album tracks with the exception of "Emergency". While I wouldn't say that they outdo the later and properly produced album versions, the potential of the band must have been obvious to the A&R who heard this at the time - I certainly found it to be interesting listening.

...I can't point you to a specific source as such, but as I mentioned in my own post elsewhere on this thread, I've certainly read that part of the agreement with Vai stipulated something along those lines, yes.

I can confirm that the squeals were also very much in evidence when Sykes fronted Lizzy some 10+ years ago in my hometown of Trondheim, Norway. Like you, I could have done without most of 'em. I thought Sykes' vocals worked fairly good overall, although it should be said I'm no Thin Lizzy fanatic to start with. Thanks for reminding me of Bob Daisley's Gary Moore tribute album - I'll certainly

I haven't heard the latest deluxe version, but demo versions featuring Vandenberg's original guitar tracks is certainly an incentive to check it out as far as I'm concerned, so thanks for the heads up! As for Vandenberg's hand injury, I get the feeling from Olsen's statements in the Popoff book that he didn't consider Vandenberg the kind of studio grade player who could bring the precision he

Hi again, Dennis! Thanks for the update! The 12:06 clips you put up on YouTube sounded pretty good to me, and I'm glad to hear that working with Stan is a blast. You'd be fools to do anything but satisfy yourselves musically, anyway, so all the best of luck with the rest of the process! As for the "Fashion by Passion" reissue, the Firefest DVD certainly makes sense in a companion

Hi, Dennis! It's cool to see that classic White Sister tunes are getting covered with respect, and also that your 12:06 project with Stan Cotey appears to be nearing completion. (By the way, kudos to Stan for his obviously integral part in designing Fender's growing pedal range of recent years - they have some very clever features/designs by the look of it!) Anyway, since you're probably k

With the upcoming album right around the corner (11th October), Stargazer have now released their third video from it: "So Now You're Leaving". This is certainly the closest the band gets to sheer AOR on "The Sky Is the Limit" (the album), which is mostly more classic hard rock in nature than this particular track. The canyonscape of Jutulhogget again makes a spectacular ap

Hi, all! Count me in as a huge City Boy fan! I'd point to "The Day the Earth Caught Fire" as one of the band's masterpieces, "Dinner at the Ritz" and "Heads Are Rolling" in my estimation filling out the trio as such. Having said, I hugely enjoy the rest of the band's catalog, too. I find that there was somehow a singular wit and strong musical identity running thr

Hi, all! Friday saw the offical release of the second single from the upcoming Stargazer album, "The Sky's the Limit". The song is called "I'm the One" and this is the video for it. For the Norwegians on here that might know the place, this was shot in Jutulhogget near Alvdal in Nord-Oesterdalen.

Hi, Roar! Stargazer guitarist William's teacher at GIT was in fact Russ Parrish, these days more often known as Satchel, of course. It's no secret that William is a great fan of Doug Aldrich, though, so maybe that's where that misunderstanding comes from? I know William saw Hurricane live with Doug Aldrich at the Palace during his GIT year, too. As for Stargazer, the band feels that the up

Glad to hear you liked it, Carl. As far as I know, there are two further video singles in the pipeline, though they'll be unveiled nearer the album's release date. I'm also fairly certain you'll find more to like on the album!

Hi all! Haven't seen this mentioned on the main page yet, so hopefully it's okay to post it on the board: Here's the video for Stargazer's "The Sky Is the Limit", title track and lead single from an album that is due in October on Mighty Music. Mixed and mastered by Soren Andersen (Glenn Hughes) and featuring the rhythm section of Morten Skaget and Morten Skogstad/Kenneth Odin fro

UM, I agree that Winterkat Mk. II is the superior line-up of the band, although I must admit that I quite enjoy the first EP, too. With the original band minus Grell evolving into Nightwork, you kind of got the best of both worlds eventually. My speculations in the previous post regarding what might be reissued in the future were of course nothing more than just that: Not including the first E

David, I’ve read about Heyoka, but never actually heard any of their music. They had a CD released of their material from back in the day some years back, right? UM, I recall hearing a Mudpie track back around the time of the album’s release, finding it pretty good, although as you point out, it’s a whole other musical proposition to both Winterkat and Steelhouse Lane. “On Myself” c
