Can anyone tell me anything about this release which is listed on the HH's main site? I've been searching for ages and can't find a thing about them. Certainly looks interesting.

Melbourne band. Great keyboard laden AOR along the lines of their fellow AOR journeymen Avalon, Black China, Saffire, Risky Business.

There is only one F in Safire, Andre.

Keep your eyes out for a band called "Someones else life", they feature jason and Mik of Square One.

I owned this one once... think it went to Taki too. Like most these ones I found. :lol: Decent slab of AOR actually, not bad at all.

I really want this CD sooo bad. :) Just thought I'd share that in case anyone wants to give it to me. But seriously, if you see this one for sale somewhere, please please please give me a shout. I looked for it while doing some CD hunting in Melbourne recently but I was dreaming to think I'd actually find it.

F*ck the CDs, guys. How the hell is this guy supporting a life in the Kiribati Islands? I thought people only did that in movies. Is he older and retired and completely loaded, or is he still working from the Islands? And if so, what does he do? I want to be him. Teach me his secrets.

Thanks to Geoff for helping me out with this one. It's pretty laid back AOR, definitely on the softer side of the genre but still has some very nice songs on here.

Yeah, I spun it again the other night too. Nice vocals and a good production. The songs are all pretty cool without ever being too exciting, imo... but it's really not a bad disc at all.

Looks like there is an official re-issue of this much sought after disc.

Just trying to find out if it's silver pressed or cdr.

New artwork too apparently.

Seems like a very odd choice for a re-issue. Hard to believe actually. I thought this band was quite unknown except in these small AOR circles.

Still, great news if it's true. As long as its not a dodgy TimeWarp re-issue.

Keep us posted if you hear any more Lindsay.

I dont know why the band would like to reissue this as one of them is sitting on atleast a box of blue ruby cds :)

 

maybe thats why the band are re-issuing it....

not sure tho.

Wow, yeah, gotta agree with Justin. I'd be amazed to see this one get re-issued.

I belive the re-issue is cdr by one of the band members ...who is obviously then not the same one who has (and doesn't know the band member who has) a box of the originals.

afaik, only 3 of guys in the band sold the cds & I'm betting the one who's reissuing the cd may still be on non speaking terms with other members of the band.

I started this topic almost 8 years ago to the day and still don't own this CD. I have it in mp3 format but would still love to add this to my Aussie CD collection.

I wouldn't mind picking this one up as well. Any of the Aussie members on here have any extra one?
