Hi all. For me, it has to be Toto. I discovered their Mindfields cd about two months ago, and it set off a buying spree like I haven't experienced in quite a while. I picked up the Live In Amsterdam DVD and these cds: Livefields, Tambu, Kingdom of Desire, XX, Fahrenheit and Bobby Kimball's recording with the Classic Rock Orchestra. All in all, excellent work. I had some of the earlier cds (I

Let us know if you went. Boston is heading this way in August, and I'm thinking of going ... tix are $60+ though. A bit steep. But I bet it would be a great show. Also thinking about heading to Atlanta to catch the TOTO show with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. It's the only U.S. show I see right now ... anyone know why? Just rediscovered them after a long hiatus thanks to Wherehouse Music, w

Hi all. It sounds like I'm kinda like the rest of y'all. I have about 2,500 lps and around 1,100 cds. The one thing I haven't been able to do is sell my vinyl. I'm too attached to it to let it go for a fraction of its sentimental value. eBay has been a great thing for me. Like a lot of you, I buy on it. I also sell on it. Having learned a lot about AOR from this site and others, I've done pret

Phil, You bring up a good point not related to the the public drubbing of Geoff (which I will pass on) ... ... which is the acknowledgement that the LeRoux AOR Live disc isn't live at all. That pissed me off to no end. I was stunned that the band would release this. Leon Medica produced it, so I assume he knew what was going on. Only the Fergie tracks are truly live. The rest are studio recor

I'm with Troy on this. I always figure in shipping into the total price and bid accordingly. No one's mentioned this, but it's very common to start the auction really low, but have shipping a little higher to cover thy butt. Not my approach, but I see it done occasionally. I do what someone else mentioned ... $2.50 for shipping. It's not the actual cost (which is usually $1.29 or $1.09), but i

49 3/4 Cent, It's scary to see so many records on your list in my collection. I worked for a music store back then and when the melodic rock promo copies came up for grabs, I was the only one wanting them. It's great to see someone else acknowledge Fierce Heart. Always loved that record. Great driving beat, really good singer, crunchy guitars. Riggs, The B'zz (does anyone have the Boyzz record

Yeah, they were a band that was highly touted by Kerrang during the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal era. I saw their first album on vinyl years ago and passed on it. About two years ago, I got the urge to track it down via eBay. After I listened to it, I couldn't understand what the fuss was about. Not very good in my opinion. Of course, that could be said of a lot of the bands during that ti

Andy, I ordered Proterra when it came out from the fan club (along with the 4 AAA cds). I think it's great. Very modern sounding with Paul Mounsey's involvement. Still, Stamping Ground hit the sweet spot for me. Great songs. Great mixture of acoustic and electric. I have heard Wolfstone. I think it was one of the two you mentioned. I liked them, but not enough to pay import prices. One turns up

Hi all. I must confess. When I read all the rave reviews about Steelhouse Lane's Slaves Of The New World, I thought it was another example of mob mentality taking over. The reviews sounded too good to be true. Well.... I was wrong. Saw it at a great price on Amazon, so I grabbed it. What an incredible disc. Reminds me a lot of Giant's Last of the Runaways ... only better. Saw Keith Slack si

Andy wrote: "Runrig - In Search Of Angels" Andy, Great to see someone else write about Runrig. They could qualify for "underappreciated band." Found out about them about 2 years ago and have been hooked ever since. My fav: The Stamping Ground. Also agree with an earlier post about Riggs. Great record. Stuart

This a tough one. I definitely agree with Power. Love that cd. I liked Steve Morse more with Kansas than Deep Purple. His guitar sound and style just fits better to these ears. The first that came to mind for me was Rik Emmett's "Absolutely" cd. Great melodic songs. Excellent guitar playing, though not as in your face perhaps as Triumph was. And Rik's voice was in fine form. All in all

Phil, No sweat ... you didn't offend anyone. My response was just me trying to be a little sarcastic. As for the Higher Up Live CD, the sound quality isn't great ... but since I never saw the band live when UP was out, it was better than nothing to me. I find it better to play the cd on a boombox while I'm doing something else than to play it on the big stereo and sit down to listen. Turth be

Dull? Country feel? That hurts those of us from the Bayou State who grew up on those two records. (Granted, the second one was kind of bad.) Still, for this group, the first two probably aren' t the ones to get. "UP" is the best one to me ... I always liked Jeff Pollard's voice. Plus the songs are great melodic rock. "Last Safe Place" didn't rock as hard as UP, nor were the

1005. Zebra
Hi all. This past weekend, my family and I went to the end of Louisiana ... Grand Isle ... for a little fishing and not much else. It's kinda remote. Anyway, imagine my surprise as we drive onto the island and see a sign on the side of the road saying "Zebra! Saturday at The Beach House." Well, of course I went. Here are a couple of brief observations: 1. If you like the Zebra sound,

Hey all. My best of Wetton is: 1. UK -- UK Live : this is the first cd I ever heard him on ... and it's still my favorite. A touch more prog than AOR, but still damn good. Get it if you can. 2. Asia - Astra : Wetton's in fine form, and Mandy Meyer's guitar gives the record a nice adge to it. 3. Asia - Asia : A classic. I just never was too fond of Howe's tinny guitar sound. Which is probably

After seeing that thread about band's who have the most "best of" cds out, it made me think about what band had no reason releasing a "best of" collection. My vote: Stone Fury I was working in a record store when their stuff came out (all two albums worth, I think) and I don't recall a single hit. Who else falls into this category? Stuart

Hey all. Anyone have any opinions on the new Phil Lynott Live 1983 recording? Just saw it at Tower and was wondering how it is. Any comments are appreciated. Also, Norum in UFO should be interesting. I would have liked it if Chapman had played ... but we've already experienced that. Norum is a breath of fresh air ... something new in the UFO sound. I always liked his playing with Europe. Solo s

Varied list at the moment: Boston -- Corporate America (polished sound that Boston's known for combined with a few twists and turns) Shooting Star -- Hang On For Your Life (classic record) UFO -- Strangers In The Night (see Shooting Star comment; when Schenker is on, the results are incredible) Webb Wilder -- Doo Dad (if you don't have this one, by all means track it down; crunchy guitars, gr

Hey all. I have to admit, I was reluctant to pick up Boston's Corporate America after reading the comments about it here. But, when I saw it for $6.99 at a used cd store yesterday, I had to take the gamble. For what it's worth, I like the cd quite a bit. I've always been a fan of Brad Delp's and Fran Cosmo's voices. I also love the sound Tom Scholtz creates. Perhaps the only weakness are the
