Jeff Paris - Freak Flag


JC_AOR

Recommended Posts

I've never actually heard this album but being a Jeff Paris fan I have had this on my want list for a while. The original release was in smallish numbers and a Japan only release which is why a lot of people don't have this one. It does show up on E-Bay quite regularly but it is expensive.

 

Now it has been re-issued (I'm not sure which label) with one bonus track 'Hygiene' and is available at MusicBuyMail for EUR 14.50

A very good album, but don't go expecting 'Wired Up' or 'Lucky This Time' part 2 if you aren't familiar with it. It's got more in common with the previous 'Smack' disc (2 or 3 tracks are on both 'Smack' and 'FF', the excellent 'Edge Of A Broken Heart' worthy of special mention). Good to see a re-issue, as I have seen a few people asking about this one over the years.

Alot better than smack IMO. It was a while since I listened to it but for me it was up there with Lucky this time. I remember a fairly booring drum-machine sound but I can be wrong. I need to bring it out again since I liked it alot the last time I listened to it.

I have to admit, I recall this being much better than 'Smack' too. Great to see it re-issued as this had been on my want list for a long time.

    • Cool song. If ADV is strictly hired to play keys, it should be fine. 
    • Ooh, nice!  I'll have to revisit the first album. 
    • Ugh... I hate you so much. You know I hate you, right? ;} I've never seen either iteration. 
    • These are sounding pretty good.

A string of high quality releases have ensued throughout the last 20 years insuring a strong and loyal following. Highly respected by fans and fellow musicians alike, this new album will add to the bands great legacy and underline the reason why Newman are considered to be one of the UK’s top Melodic Rock artists.

    • Imagine a world where Andrew Wood didn’t die and Mother Love Bone was still creating awesome music!
    • “My Icarian Flight” featuring the one and only ADV 😜  
    • lol, this was my thought process too. What about Confess?! I like both bands, but not at the expense of one of them. 
    • I do have to give him credit for sounding exactly the same as he did in 1989...
