Even though the ALIEN debut is 31 years old now it has lost nothing of its magic. In particular the two anthems “Only One Woman” and “Tears Don’t Put Out The Fire” are still a wet dream for any AOR fan. This reissue contains the original Scandinavian version with Jim Jidhed on vocals as well as the later US-version with new singer Pete Sandberg on vocals on some songs. Furthermore the re-release contains the two bonus tracks “Feel My Love” and “Touch My Fire” which make this album even more essential.

Working Week combines the strong elements of contemporary jazz with Latin influences. They also add a touch of gospel for good measure. The only missing track that would have been the crowning jewel for this collection was Rodrigo Bay. This track can only be found on the 1986 motion picture soundtrack Absolute Beginners (movie, video-like musical about British or U.K. teens in the early 60's with musical and screen appearances by David Bowie and Sade). Rodrigo Bay would have shown just how seamlessly and vibrantly Working Week could mix Latin, jazz, and cha-cha rhythms for a tropical partying frenzy. Still, this collection offers the 10 minute Latin and jazz musical opus of Venceremos which includes vocal and musician contributions by Tracey Thorn (Everything But the Girl) and Stuart Matthewman (Sade). This compilation is guaranteed to stay fresh in anyone's eclectic music collection.

A reunion of West Coast studio pros, 1993's Airplay for the Planet found guitarist Jay Graydon bringing together many longtime friends for a smooth, laid-back production that evoked the classic soft rock and adult-contemporary pop of the '70s and '80s. A virtuoso guitarist who famously played the solo on Steely Dan's 1977 classic "Peg," Graydon had built up a deep list of performance, songwriting, and production credits by the early '90s. Working with close collaborators keyboardist David Foster and Chicago singer Bill Champlin, he had picked up a Grammy for penning Earth, Wind & Fire's 1979 hit "After the Love Has Gone," which he and Foster also included on their superb 1980 album Airplay.

After the success of Vision Divine, singer / songwriter Michele Luppi got the chance to record his solo album, and the Italian baptized the release as MICHELE LUPPI's HEAVEN, with the album's title “Strive“. This is a collection of songs where Luppi puts his heart out: this is the music he loves, and while musically is obviously influenced by '80s AOR what Luppi delivers in “Strive” is quite different, personal. This is the type of AOR albums which avoids common places: you have the catchy choruses, the keys, sure, but there's something 'extra', something 'special' about this album.

Jim Jidhed, the singer of the legendary AOR band ALIEN, is back in business with his 6th solo album which is entitled "Push On Through". This time Jim has the valuable help of Daniel Flores (The Murder Of My Sweet) who is doin' a damn fine job regarding the production making the final result a pleasant and very enjoyable ride all the way!!! The sound recalls to the ALIEN days but with an updated sound and in a more edgy way. The voice of Jim Jidhed sounds stronger than ever and his powerful and emotional performances are the cherry on top.

British AOR outfit has been away for quite some time but now guitar player Vince O’Reagan (BOB CATLEY, LEGION) starts a new version of the band including a new line-up. It’s a collection of re-recorded and freshly produced songs from earlier ESCAPE records and some of his solo stuff as well as two songs previously recorded by BOB CATLEY but written by O’Reagan (“Blinded By A Lie“ and “Walk On Water“). Everything is typical British AOR with lots of majestic keyboards but also with balls or in other words, sharp guitars. If you dig the likes of TEN, NEWMAN or SERPENTINE, you can’t go wrong here.

A unique band, Carmen combined flamenco music with progressive rock. Adding to their distinctiveness was the fact that during long instrumental passages, members of the band would dance on-stage, adding those sounds to the instrumental mix. Composed of Roberto Amaral (vocals, castanets), David Allen (guitar), his sister Angela Allen (keyboards), John Glascock (bass) – who later worked with Jethro Tull – and Paul Fenton (drums), Carmen's sound was focused on up-beat flamenco guitar with a strong rhythm section and subtle keyboards. Their first album, Dancing on a Cold Wind, was released in 1973 and featured the 23-minute epic "Remembrances (Recuerdos de Espana)." It was followed by Fandangos in Space in 1974. The quintet's final album was The Gypsies, released in 1975, a more restrained effort than previous releases.
