just to add to (and correct) some of Sam's post:

 

Its not James Neal but his replacement Mark Weitz that is featured on several tracks on one of the Americade releases. Mark also sang with Malmsteen and is VERY reminiscent of Jeff Scott Soto.

 

Sam also forgot to mention ORPHANN "Up For Adoption" -- classic melodic rock with pomp and AOR overtones from 1977 is due out shortly.

 

Also THUNDERBOX will be out at the same time. This is superb pomp rock / AOR that features David Mikael of MPG and DAVID.

 

New releases (on my end) for the new year will include:

ILLUSTRATOR -- III: Effect Of The Boomerang -- featuring 15 fantastic songs from the final and unreleased album from this superb Christian Westcoast AOR band. Some of these songs are surprisingly heavier than whats on their previous albums.

 

CRYSTAL PROJECT -- also known as CRYSTAL PISTOL but changed their name due to confusion with the Canadian band. This will be a 2 CD set of all their material recorded in the late 80's / early 90's. This New York based band are simply unreal. One of the best AOR releases on Retrospect to date. Wait til you hear this one!!

 

KABLAMACHUNK -- this strangely named band from New York just gave me all their material to release as a double-disc set. Recorded in the late 80's / early 90's. Produced in part by Blue Oyster Cult's Albert Bouchard -- this band mixes elements of AOR, melodic rock, prog rock and powerpop with superb results.

 

TRACER FOX -- Yes, its been in the works for a while now but the drummer keeps finding more and more material!!

We'll probably end up with 2 Tracer Fox releases - one being produced by John and Dino Elefante -- but this IS secular music, not Christian. Most of these songs have never seen the light of day (including the Elefante produced material). Killer 80's classic metal / melodic hard rock!

 

Other releases I am working my ass off to get out early 2011 include:

GENOCIDE (early 80's metal)

HENDRICKSON (solo project from Genocide's lead singer/lead guitarist)

18 NAMES "Armed and Ready" (featuring Karla Goldman -- with bonus tracks and live DVD)

SURRENDER -- all 3 releases to be reissued "No Boundaries", "Ship With No Sails" , "Full Circle"

ONE EIGHTY "Turning Point" -- Christian California AOR band

PARAGON -- featuring ALL the material recorded by this killer California based AOR / melodic rock band.

 

plus all the releases that revered New York guitarist ROY COSTON was a part of throughout the 80's and 90's including:

BANDIT, FLM, ARDENT, DC STRUT, LOVEBONE

 

I am probably missing a few but that should keep you going! LOL!

your comments are appreciated!

ROCK ON!

Aaron

Mark also sang on the EYES Full Moon disc and you're correct in saying is very close in sound to JSS.

MArk Weitz also sang on the Ramos cd years back although I was quite disappointed with that release. Eyes - Full Moon has some great tracks and vocals on it from Mark. What Americade release does he sing on? I also never new he sang for Malmsteen, the onnly Mark I thought did that was Boals???
