Terry, from Wikipedia: "The original mix features Max Bacon on lead vocals and John Payne on backing vocals. The version with Max Bacon does not appear on the European releases of the Islands album, due to Bacon still being under contract to Arista Records at the time. However, Bacon's vocals do appear on the US album version, which was not released until 1988 in an attempt to capitalize

"Black & White" from Bite the Bullet is a superb album.

Look forward to seeing them on the road again, but I wish they'd reconsider and bring back a keyboard player for live shows.

Rip John. Wasn't 'Music' such a brilliant song? And I loved his 80s AOR album, "Transition". Such a great vocalist on The Alan Parsons Project albums too.

That's true Terry. The title track from "Can't Look Away" channels the moodier songs from "Big Generator", like "Shoot High, Aim Low".

Yeah, "Wired For Sound" and "We Don't Talk Anymore" are the ones that stick with me, and that's probably more for the Alan Tarney/ Trevor Spencer connection (best known for producing "Take On Me" for A-ha, but for me their highlight was the Kevin Peek album, "Life & Other Games")

I really liked "Double Trouble" but don't remember much else about the album.

To me, they were one of the best bands the UK produced, and totally unknown here. Played pubs in London, and arenas everywhere else.

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

'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.
