Name an obscure (ish) classic album!

Recommended Posts

It's on the main pages Jez : http://www.heavyharmonies.com/cgi-bin/glamcd.cgi?BandNum=3033&CDName=Facing+Destiny

 

Great album nevertheless! Is it true that one of these guys are blind ?! I think I read that somewhere.

 

My mistake. I was looking under 'N' the surname 'Norman'. Saves me a job ;)

Neil Norman/ Bobby Sexton - Facing Destiny 1990

 

gnp2198.jpg

 

If a bit of bombastic Pomp/ AOR is your thing, then look no further than this. This was only released on the small GNP Crescendo label back in 1990 and bar the odd mention here and there, seems to have sunk without trace - it's not even on the HH main pages, so I will add it over the next day or 2. If Arcangel/ Canatta/ Asia are your thing, then you could do a lot worse than check this out. There's loads of Keys and plenty of guitar moments and the songs are really very good indeed. I've only had a cd-r of this for donkeys years, and to be honest, until a couple of weeks ago, even I had virtually forgotten about it, until I flicked through a pile of cd-r's that were lying about. I snagged a nice shiny new copy on amazon fairly cheaply, so it should be fairly easy to get hold of and if the above mentioned bands are your 'Thang' then I strongly suggest you do, as it's a little beauty.

 

Purchased ! Thanks for the tip, Jez ? :P

silly_fools.jpg?et=f89xU%2CiRykyWlIbfTrxIug&nmid=

 

I have tried to not make this album a stranger to the forum and I have posted threads etc, but only a few of the brave took a leap on it. As far as I know, everyone who did take the leap did enjoy the album a lot. It does have a slight modern touch, but it's melodic hard rock at it's purest and simplest. The guitarist - when he lets rip a few times on the disc - is Pete Lesperence at his best-esque and quite simply brilliant. And the songs are just so simple and purely written (the band is from Thailand and English is not their forte), but deliciously emotive and heartfelt. Anyway, not much more I can say about this I haven't said in other threads... I just see this album as utterly essential to anyone.

Even though its a Geoff suggestion... this is one awesome disc!! just wish i could get it. Its some of my most played mp3s.

Im going to give this a go! It was hard deciding where to start..

430.jpg

Nouveaux ~ Beginnings

 

Year: 1994

 

Label: Liberty

 

Personnel

Paul Alan lead and backing vocals, keyboards

Kurt Lehman bass, backing vocals

Brad Angus drums

K.C. Smothers lead guitar, backing vocals

Steve Ashley guitar, backing vocals

 

Notable additional musicians:

John Lawry (Petra), David Zaffiro, Tony Palacios (Guardian)

Tracks

1. We Believe

2. United We Stand

3. Holding My Own

4. Bridge Across the Water

5. Red, White, Black and Blue

6. All That Glitters

7. Some Things Never Change

8. Hurt so Bad

9. A Time to Cry

10. Across the Miles

 

This has to be one of my favourite albums. You could sum this up as a Christian version of Def Leppards Adrenalize album, which is a good comparison, however its much more then just that. Huge harmonies, two lead vocalists, huge choruses, emotive singing... everything from party rock to soft moodier acoustic stuff, and darker tracks too.

Starting with the single "We believe" we have the most immediate hooky track on the album and the most simple. Simple, crunchy, with a bunch of "whoa yeh" vocals. "united we stand" is a great followup melodic rocker. We have two melodic rockers bordering on power ballads with "Holding my own" and "Hurt so bad". Vocalist Paul Alan sounds awesome and lets it all out. "Red White Black and BLue" is a bit funkier... maybe a tad Extreme. "All that glitters" is a huge song. Probably the heaviest on the album. I think its Steve Ashley whoi sings this one. "Bridge across the water", "Some things never change" and "a time to cry" are more melancholy acoustic ballads, not too dissimilar from their second album. And we finish with "Across the miles".. a song which manages to mix the softer numbers, with the melodic power of "holding my own" and "hurt so bad" and rounds out the album perfectly.

Dont be put off by the cover, and the boyband cross catholic boys choir clothes...this has an awesome huge production and is a very mature rock album with alot of depth.

 

Its easy to pick up very cheap also!

I just wish it had a few more heavier tracks. The softer tracks are great, but the ratio of heavy/moody is off. Add five more rockers and this album may not have been listed in this thread. Fantastic album, nonetheless.

Where to begin? I was initially going to start with a controversial album, as I've noticed that no one has made such a post, yet. Instead, I've decided to travel the road Geoff took. I may have mentioned these guys on this site before, but, with four albums under their belt (three full length and one acoustic EP), The Classic Crime still seem to fly under the radar.

 

I still remember the first time I heard The Classic Crime. I was sifting through the "Rock" section at one of the local music stores, in 2006, and, as usual, I was very unimpressed. I headed over to the wall where there were demo CDs for previewing. I recall skipping through a few unforgettably forgettable CDs, before I stumbled upon Albatross. It was something I hadn't heard in a while. What I heard was modern melodic hard rock with a late nineties punk edge. It was old, but it was new. That album received top airtime around my house, still no one knew who they were. In 2007, they released an acoustic EP of all original music, that further displayed their artistic abilities. The following year they dropped an album that, to this day, still gets played on a regular basis.

 

Nearly every playlist I make has a couple tracks from The Silver Chord. This third effort--second full length--is their strongest compilation, and most diverse. It's dark and heavy, yet light and gentle. It's an album that takes many different elements--melodic rockers, soft moody tunes, an instrumental, a little punk, and even some progressive elements--and seemlessly... er, seems... them... together. Seemlessly. At least one track could fit into a plethora of different mixes. I'm not really inclined to going through each track--hell--I don't even feel like listing any highlights, as that is all relevant, and the entire 55 minutes is true brilliance.

Well here is a Washington State band of youngsters called The Lonely H. Now this is not in any way shape or form a "hyper, super, mega rare indie band" that know one can find and the cd's will cost a mint. (The 3 cd's they've released are readily available through Amazon et al) I think the obscure factor for these kids is that know one knows who they are and thats a damn shame.

 

The albums:

lonelyh-concreteclass.jpglonelyh-kickupstairs.jpglonelyh-hair.jpg

 

The band:

lonelyh.jpglonelyh2.jpg

 

If you dig your tunes very soulful, with some killer jams ala the Allman Brothers, The Doors, The Black Crowes, The Eagles, Bad Company, Skynard, Free and any other 70's flavored West Coast band.

 

The crazy thing about these amazing albums and the style they are presented in is that the band is in and just out of high school! Thats right somewhere in the 16-18 year old range and they just kill.

 

Check them out!

Kenny Rogers - They Don't Make Them Like They Used To RCA 1986

 

rogersk_tdmtltut.jpg

 

 

Now then, please no giggling at the back please. THE Kenny Rogers you say, the king of Country and Western?. YES the very same, and I was as surprised when I heard this album back in the late 80's, as you are of me having the nerve to post it here ;). It's not an obscure album as such, as it went gold in the US, but I am damned sure that alot of people here who like their Westcoast/AOR, are not aware of some of the delights contained on this album. Full on Westcoast is the name of the game here,check out the list of people involved on this thing, Jay Graydon Peter Beckett, Steve Lukather, Dan Huff, Jonathan Cain, Michael Bolton, Tommy Funderburk, Bill Champlin, Richard Page, El DeBarge and Jason Scheff to name but a few. Anyone who is into their Westcoast stuff will recognise all of those names and will be aware of the projects Jay Graydon has been involved in in the past (Airplay, Airplay For The Planet, King Of Hearts, Dwayne Ford, Clif Mageness, David Roberts, Pages to name but a few). They will also know this bloke doesn't do rubbish, and this album is no different. Loads of great tracks including 'This Love We Share' which has Graydon's trademarks all over it, 'If I Could Hold On To Love' which is a Lukather Co-write aswell as featuring one of his trademark solos, aswell as Michael Bolton/Jonathan Cain penned 'Just The Thought Of Losing You' and Peter Beckett's 'After All This Time', both Westcoast/AOR gems. Of course, there are a couple of sappy ballads featured, but ignoring those, this is one classy album that will definitely surprise all the Westcoast fans here and they shouldn't be afraid of checking it out pronto.

The local station in So. Illinois played the crap out the song "Sullivan" back in 1997 when this was released and I've always loved the song as well as most on this album. I saw these guys live twice and they rocked both times and they always played some 80's metal in their encores as well. While they aren't you're standard HH type band and are maybe a little more alternative or grunge influenced hard rock I still thought these guys were great and Jimmy's Newquist was a good singer and lyricist.

Angie Aparo - The American

 

Angie_Aparo-The_American_3.jpg

 

I've had this album 10 years and it still gets played alllllll the time. I just never get bored of it and although it's fame may be a little more widespread in the U.S. (where it spawned the hit single Spaceship) it's completely unheard of over here.

Primarily Angie was a kind of U.S. folky rock kind of artist, not like U.K folk which is all about people dancing around tractors and haystacks and the like. Prior to this he released an album called Out of the Everywhere, which was good but The American was a GIANT leap in terms of songwriting and production. Now don't get me wrong the guy always writes great songs (even to this day) but with the backing of Arista and a great producer in Matt Seletic the quality shot thru the roof.

Dumb enough lots of his fans at the time of this release accused him of selling out, I guess they liked the exclusivity of keeping him to themselves as a little secret, nothing quite like shortsightedness. Either way Spaceship was a big hit (from what I believe) and the album is choc full of folky rock tinged with the old AORy tinges, Spaceship being the perfect example.

The earth anthem Green to Gold kicks it off and pretty much sets the tone for the album, acerbic lyric coupled with great songwriting, melodies and a nice guitars (not in your face but definitely not in the background) and then there's the soaring harmonies....great stuff. But seriously what sets this apart is the songwriting again, ever song has a message or a story, but never preachy, just regular tales of life and told with all the skill of a master storyteller.

 

But the fans got their way Arista dropped Angie (a phenomenally stupid mistake in my book - having said that have Arista ever had any kind of major success with a rock act?) and he kind of returned to the fringes of the scene - still plugging away and releasing the ocassion album. Primo Del Tres one of his albums being produced by Dan Huff in fact.

But it goes to show that Arista have no idea how to market decent music after Faith Hill had a huge hit with Cry, and her husband Tim McGraw covered Free Man. In fact there seems to be quite a few people covering his stuff. Crazy....the album does not have one bad track on it, and it was definitely head and shoulders above everything my fave album of 2000, and 10 years on it's still on of my firm fave albums.

 

Here's the song Spaceship.....luvvly!

Can I take me a whack at this?

 

Red Sea - BLOOD (Rugged Records, 1994)

0-----------_2008_5_00_31_Red%2520Sea%2520-%2520Blood.jpg

 

Red Sea was a "one and done" Christian hard rock project led by former Die Happy vocalist Robyn "Kyle" Basauri. Die Happy had started out as a traditional heavy metal project with a hint of thrash, but their VOLUME II album (1993) left a lot of that sound behind and instead shifted towards a more blues-based hard rock vibe, similar to that of Badlands. (Coincidentally, former Badlands bassist Greg Chaisson joined Die Happy just prior to the recording of VOLUME II.) Die Happy released a live-in-the-studio EP in late '93 before splitting up, and Basauri quickly regrouped with Chaisson, guitarist Chris Howell (of Fear Not) and drummer Jeff Martin (Chaisson's former Badlands bandmate) under the RED SEA banner. Their one and only album, BLOOD, was released on the fledgling Rugged Records label in 1994.

 

Quite simply, this disc blows away any of Basauri's work with Die Happy, and it is on par (or perhaps even BETTER) than that legendary first Badlands album when it comes to straight up, bluesy '70s style hard rock/metal. Must hear tracks include the opening "Soul Shaker," the moody "Wolves at the Door," the crunchy "Hellbound Train" and especially the amazing "Shades of Purple," a salute to Gillan, Blackmore & Co. that I swear sounds like a lost Deep Purple B-Side from the MACHINE HEAD era. Basauri's wailing his ass off ala Gillan while Howell rips out a wall of Ritchie inspired riffs and the Jon Lord style keyboardisms are in full effect, it's awesome!!!

 

Unfortunately BLOOD would be the one and only album from this promising band. Whether its failure was due to the hazards of being signed to a brand new, inexperienced record label, or simply the fact that this sort of music was hopelessly out of vogue in 1994 depends on who you ask, I guess. Either way, it's a fine hard rock album that still holds up well today and is worth seeking out.

YES, YES, YES!!! :bowdown:

 

I could not agree with you more Wes.. :tumbsup:

I seen these guys open for Sebastian Bach at the old BIRCH HILL here in Joisey..

Next day, I picked the album up..

Their second release is pretty good as well...

Just listened to this, again. Worth far more than $2.00, so if you don't already have it, get it!!

CMOOOOOOON PEOPLE! Even the annoying lil jerk of a rugrat agrees with me!!!

"lil jerk of a rugrat" Really? Are you running out of insults? I could give you a few, if you would like.
