  1. WHAT IF - What If (Japan CD, special edition)

    WHAT IF - What If (Japan CD, special edition)

    €18.50
    Incl. VAT, Excl. shipping

    In 1987 singer Tommy Funderburk founded the band What If together with Bob Wilson and Larry Williams. Their selftitled album is what we call nowadays an absolute classic gem. With the help of Mike Landau, Dann Huff, Paulinho DaCosta and Bill Champlin What If created nine westcoast highlights of the first degree Learn More
  2. VALENTI, JOHN - I Won’t Change (Japan CD, special edition)

    VALENTI, JOHN - I Won’t Change (Japan CD, special edition)

    €18.50
    Incl. VAT, Excl. shipping

    Fans of West Coast AOR were sorely deprived of this, as for 1980/81 Valenti ranked with the best male solo artists of the genre, think David Roberts or John O’ Banion, not to mention powerhouse acts at the time like Toto or Player. Digitally remastered re-issue. Learn More
  3. THE BOYS BAND - The Boys Band (JAP SHM CD, digitally remastered)

    THE BOYS BAND - The Boys Band (JAP SHM CD, digitally remastered)

    €20.50
    Incl. VAT, Excl. shipping

    Curiously though the tracks featured are almost by outside writers, incl. Greg Guidry, Tom Snow, Ian Thomas and Rafe VanHoy. the album is one of the best of the AOR tinged country albums of the period and finds itself firmly in the predictable field of what Poco/Firefall were doing in the 1980-82 years Learn More
  4. STRAIGHT LINES - Straight Lines (JAP CD, digitally remastered)

    STRAIGHT LINES - Straight Lines (JAP CD, digitally remastered)

    €17.50
    Incl. VAT, Excl. shipping

    There isn't a track going to waste here, although it is clear the band was a bit rough around the edges when compared to the far smoother 'Run For Cover'. This is actually a heavier record, cue the likes of 'Midnight Woman' and its raw 70's hard rock rhythms that mimic Player's 'Danger Zone' album at its hardest. A lovely debut here without a doubt, don't miss it. Learn More
  5. STRAIGHT LINES - Run For Cover (JAP CD, digitally remastered)

    STRAIGHT LINES - Run For Cover (JAP CD, digitally remastered)

    €17.50
    Incl. VAT, Excl. shipping

    Straight Lines were never over-heavy and the title track is a firm indication of where they were at musically. Nice melodic riffs and vital harmonies with smooth vocals from Sinclair. Great period AOR in the vein of PLAYER's "Spies Of Life". Just a pity that the band split after a lack of interest from overseas buyers. Bob Buckley and David Sinclair went on to form Body Electric with ex Ironhorse/Union man Frank Ludwig. Learn More
  6. SNOW, TOM - Hungry Nights (JAP CD, special edition, digitally remastered)

    SNOW, TOM - Hungry Nights (JAP CD, special edition, digitally remastered)

    €18.50
    Incl. VAT, Excl. shipping

    This album has become one of the most sought after “West Coast Sound” productions as it finds Snow in top notch form as a songwriter and features top notch players like Jeff Porcaro, Abe Laboriel, Tom Kelly, Lenny Castro, Mike Baird and much more. Digitally remastered re-issue. Learn More
  7. ROLIE, GREGG - Gregg Rolie (JAP CD, digitally remastered)

    ROLIE, GREGG - Gregg Rolie (JAP CD, digitally remastered)

    €17.50
    Incl. VAT, Excl. shipping

    If you like it the way VAN STEPHENSON or STEVE PERRY did, then you will also dig the solo debut of Gregg Rolie. “Young Love” is a fantastic opener, “Close My Eyes” a great midpaced songt, written by Paul Janz and “I Wanna Go Back” a great version of the well known Eddie Money song. A true AOR classic and utterly essential for for every serious AOR lover. Learn More
  8. ROBERTS, DAVID - The Missing Years +2

    ROBERTS, DAVID - The Missing Years +2

    €7.50
    Incl. VAT, Excl. shipping

    I guess these songs were recorded between the late 80’s and the mid-90’s or so. Sure, since these are demos you’ll hear a few performances that could have been done better – but believe me, these moments are not many. All the positive sides about this album easily over-weigh this. Learn More
  9. ROBERTS, DAVID - Better Late Than Never

    ROBERTS, DAVID - Better Late Than Never

    €7.50
    Incl. VAT, Excl. shipping

    Over the years David wrote some songs for other artists and now more than 25 years later he has his 2nd album on offer, which sounds like a wonderful trip back in time to the 80s, when AIRPLAY, MAXUS and co ruled the airwaves. Recorded with just top notch players like Abe Laboriel, Mike Baird, Michael Landau, Greg Mathieson and Luis Conte this is an utterly essential purchase for every serious west coast AOR lover ! Learn More
  10. ROBERTS, DAVID - All Dressed Up (digitally remastered)

    ROBERTS, DAVID - All Dressed Up (digitally remastered)

    €7.50
    Incl. VAT, Excl. shipping

    Featuring some major musicians like the TOTO guys, David Foster, Bill Champlin, Tom Kelly, Joe Chemay and others this album is everything Westcoast music is about. If you like TOTO, DWAYNE FORD, KEANE and JAY GRUSKA, then “All Dressed Up” is right up your alley… You’d better buy this reissue before it’s out of print again! Learn More
