I just thought that Cutting Crew were an AOR band that just happened to have UK chart success!

I think it was released a year after "Face Value" came out, so Phil was definitely well known as a successful solo artist by then.

Not watching that! The fact that she can do something like that at 9 years old, and I spent all those years of practice and guitar tuition money to turn out a really poor version of 'Smoke on the Water', just goes to show the uncaring nature of the universe, quite frankly!

I only know "Driven By You" from this album. Why didn't I get this at the time?

I think he 'cleared the decks' for a while with the soundtrack work, so he could concentrate on ARW. I imagine he'll be taking more on again now, as he clearly enjoys it.

I suppose if people keep asking him to score soundtracks though, he can't really say no :-)

Also, I didn't realise that ARW had been active for nearly a decade. All that time, and only one demo produced! ARW - Fragile

It's Steve Howe's band now, and from the comments in his autobiography about Rick Wakeman, it sounds like he holds grudges. I think Jon was better off with ARW for the past few years, so it's a pity that's ended... From Wikipedia: QuoteIn March 2019, lead singer Jon Anderson announced that the band had no plans for further touring or recording, citing "mismanagement" of the ban

Saw them at the Royal Albert Hall for the Ladder tour, and bumped into Alan White at a restaurant just after the record signing that afternoon :-) The Ladder was a really good album - much better than 1997's 'Open Your Eyes', and Bruce Fairbairn did a really good job on it. There are a couple of tracks I'd swap out for the best tracks on the follow-up semi-orchestral album, "Magnificat

Every time I play 'The Lace', I just feel sad that it was the only solo album we got from him.

RUBBISH! You can't listen to "Gates of Delirium/Soon" or "Close to the Edge" and say that!

'Silent Scream' is my favourite Shooting Star album, but yes, the production could be better.

I absolutely adore Jon's voice, although some of the directions his solo albums goes in is a bit questionable. His best non-Yes stuff are the Jon & Vangelis material, but I did like most of "In The City Of Angels" (I bought it on release in '88, and Mike Read played it to death on Radio 1). "Top of the World" is definitely the best track for me, along with "Hurry H

There's the famous Ray Parker Jr "Ghostbusters" v Huey Lewis "I Want A New Drug" court case, and that WAS proved to be a rip off.

'Don't Shoot Shotgun', followed by 'Gods of War'. Although I really loved 'Animal' when it first came out.

Fantastic album, and the first to be recorded direct to hard disc instead of tape apparently. For me, it's always Yes if it has Jon on vocals. Standout tracks for me, along with "Walls" are, "I Am Waiting", and 'Endless Dream"

I liked that. I'd only heard "Tron Thomi" and "Zone of O" from the follow-up album, "Coming Home", and only then 'cos they were on the "Yes, Friends & Relatives" comiplation album..... Zone of O Tron Thomi

I'm waiting for someone to say, "Well, it's better than 90% of the generic (melodic rock/ scandi/ AOR/ Frontiers projects) that most people on this Noticeboard rave about" Usually happens every 2 months.

I prefer the 1987 version of the 'Urgent' track 'Running Back' (from the album 'Thinking Out Loud') to the version on their earlier album, 'Cast the First Stone'.... Running Back (1987) Running Back (1985) I'm also thinking of the Paul Janz track, 'I Go To Pieces'. Don't know if I prefer the original from the album, High Strung', or his re-recorded version from the album, 'Electricit

Cassettes were horrible. What was the frequency range? Something like 80Hz - 12KHz? The only format I really miss were minidiscs. I used to love the little blighters. I could easily make digital copies that slipped into my little clamshell player, and just as easy to make discs of me hopelessly jamming along with my guitar to tracks. They were big in Europe and Japan - but they didn't reall

Stereotomy was my first CD too! 1986 - bought it straight after my first Marantz CD player from Laskys. It was a good CD test to compare with the vinyl version - as it was a DDD recording (always felt a bit ripped-off when buying older ADD recordings on CD that were the same price....)
