Terry Brock - Your Man Again. Demo on one of the Union compilations is much better than the final version on Back to Eden. Dare - When. Prefer the rockier, more uptempo demo than the version on Arc of the Dawn. Metal Philharmonic - A Kiss is a Terrible Thing to Waste (feat. Kyle Gordon and Brian May) Vs Meat Loaf’s studio version.

A few decent tracks on Blind Before I Stop but Meat claimed Frank Farian ruined that album.

As I recall, the US and Ozzie releases have slightly different mixes. I remember listening to the Mushroom Records version and missing the backing vocal callback “reaching out to you in the night” on Waiting for the Heartache. Last Frontier is my favourite too. Fantastic piano playing by Cain.

Dead Ringer is overlooked too. All Jim Steinman songs but a bit more personal and darker than Bat 1. Admittedly, it’s not really AOR like Bad Attitude or Welcome to the Neighbourhood.

I’m very fond of ‘Go’ as well! (Far superior to Triumph’s Running in the Night, IMO!)

Interesting to read in Peterik’s biography that Marcie was considered for the lead vocalist spot in Survivor in 1993 before they got Dave back. Not sure if she was just a name on a list or whether auditions took place. I believe that Brett Walker (and possibly Mitch Malloy, although I may be misremembering that) were also considered.

Really like that! Bodes well for the new album.

Yeah, I’d say Jim is pretty much essential to Survivor. Just listen to his post-Survivor output and you can hear how integral his contribution was.

Nice! I had a bit of a vocal synthwave kick last year (loved The Midnight’s Heroes album) but didn’t know of these guys. I’d also be interested in a CD release but couldn’t find anything on their official site or bandcamp.

My favourite Cutting Crew track (apart from THAT one, which is still brilliant!) Everything But My Pride: https://youtu.be/_UHSAB7islY?si=DERSdMGTM20Y4qcK The Scattering lacks those 3 huge standout tracks of the debut perhaps, but it’s a lot more consistent to my ears. Plenty for an AOR/ Hi-Tech fan to enjoy (and a great Cherry Red reissue with bonus tracks a few years back).

Very fond of the Mark Spiro co-write ‘Wasteland’ - one of the standout tracks for me. Also enjoy the follow up with Soleil Moon’s Larry King on vocals.

I think the issue with the John Mitchell It Bites is that there’s one band member who doesn’t want to record, and I’m not sure (legally) the rest of the band can go ahead without him.

Good track. I’m hearing some Pride of Lions in the verses. I see it’s a Michael Palace co-write with ADV?

For me, Magnum are one of those bands who sounded better live than on the album (certainly during that period). They do some great things with the arrangements on The Spirit - Live release, making it one of my favourite live albums. And that version of Back to Earth on the 88 concert blows the studio version away!

Terrible news. Strangely, I’d been on a Magnum binge over the last few days and just last night I watched an album rankings video. Loved that run of albums from Chase the Dragon to Rock Art. Deepest condolences to Tony’s family, friends and the rest of the band.

Here’s what I was bought, bought myself, or picked up in my local second hand record shop’s post-Christmas sale. Filling some gaps in my collection! Thoughts welcome!

I gave this one its annual spin today… Every time I do, I’m reminded what immaculate songwriting, performances and production it has. I don’t know what the budget was, but it sounds like a million bucks. Yes, it’s glossy and polished and drenched in reverb, but I personally love that sound. Chris sounds great in that smokey, raspy, Eric Martin way… glorious layered backing vocals inc

LeBrock are great too. One of my favourite albums last year (and I only really like vocal synthwave) was Heroes by The Midnight.

Liking this! It’s been a long time coming but surely worth the wait. My favourite is Lover’s End - that’s a “wrapping Christmas presents” album for me, despite the rather bleak lyrics!
