  1. If you are not familiar with Brian Island he is a fantastic AOR musician that got lost in the shuffle in 1989. He was a member of the band Prototype who had a handful of hit songs in the early 1980's. He also worked with QWest, White Wolf and early Boulevard, and Sting. I did a profile of his 1989 release on my podcast with a lot of people tuning in. It is a really interesting story. Self Produced, financed and promoted not a single label picked up the album. He sold the album directly to a record chain (Like HMV) called A&A records. The album was a huge success for an independent artist w

Most were destroyed since the band didnt like the final product. On Cd: Shanghai (1991) - Take another bite (Japanese pressing)- obscure hair metal band White heat (1989) - we never heard of you either Obscure AOR group from western canada - produced by gil moore of triumph - good group worrall (1991) - original pressing. produced by jim gaines (well known producer) from canada. aor mould. good group

  13. Hi Everyone, My name is Marcus and like everyone on here I also share the same passion like you for melodic AOR, hard rock and hair metal. My passion for this music extends across many albums, bands and songs into many obscure - limited exposure groups that I find in many places. I find there are many groups that have the talent, song writing and musicianship that whatever the cause of their limited exposure are always being discovered and shared by this fantastic community of music lovers. I have started my own podcast dedicated to promoting and talking about obscure groups you ma
