Pat Travers and Rainbow are/were popular in the US.

But didn't have albums certifying Gold in the US in the 70's.

    • Brian May - Back To The Light (2 CD Deluxe Edition) Release Date: 06 August 2021 From queenonlinestore.com: Back to the Light was Brian May’s first full solo album. Released in 1992, it made the top 10 in the UK charts of that year. While Brian played most of the instruments on the album, it features guest appearances by Cozy Powell and Deep Purple’s Don Airey, as well as Queen’s John Deacon. The album contains the hit singles Driven by You and Too Much Love Will Kill You, plus Resurrection and the instrumental Last Horizon, which became a perennial Queen live highlight. This acclaimed album has long been unavailable in any format. Its timely re-issue in a variety of formats has been supervised by Brian himself, along with co-producer Justin Shirley-Smith, and Kris Fredriksson, long-time Queen art designer Richard Gray, and Bob Ludwig, who has newly mastered the entire collection. Presented in a 6 panel digi pack with a 24-page booklet containing photos and album notes. The first CD is the original album Back to the Light newly re-mastered by Bob Ludwig from the original master tapes, personally overseen by Brian May. The second CD Out of the Light, contains alternative versions, B-Sides and live tracks.   Back To The Light 1 The Dark 2 Back To The Light 3 Love Token 4 Resurrection 5 Too Much Love Will Kill You 6 Driven By You 7 Nothin' But Blue 8 I'm Scared 9 Last Horizon 10 Let Your Heart Rule Your Head 11 Just One Life 12 Rollin' Over   Out Of The Light 1 Nothin' But Blue (Guitar Version) 2 Too Much Love Will Kill You (Guitar Version) 3 Just One Life (Guitar Version) 4 Driven By You Two 5 Driven By You (Ford Ad Version) 6 Tie Your Mother Down (Featuring Slash) - Live on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, 5th April 1993 7 Too Much Love Will Kill You - Live at the Palace Theatre, Los Angeles, 6th April 1993 8 ’39 / Let Your Heart Rule Your Head - Live at the Brixton Academy 15th June 1993 9 Last Horizon - Live at the Brixton Academy 15th June 1993 10 We Will Rock You - Live at the Brixton Academy 15th June 1993 11 Driven By You (Cozy and Neil Version ’93)

    • Yeah man, you'd assume that was written and recorded by Blue Tears somewhere between 1990-1992, recorded by Sweet in 1994 with a tweak here and there for a songwriting credit. But defo an original BT song.
