John Parr - The Minute I Saw You


Recommended Posts

Great song. Right up my alley. From the 'Three Men And A Baby' soundtrack.




From John Parr's FB:

There was a looming deadline for the release of Three Men and a Baby. So much so that a motor bike courier was waiting in the studio reception to take the 5.1 Dolby mix of the title track ‘The Minute I Saw You’ to be dubbed into the movie that very same day. The clock was ticking..., the mix was finished and off the bike sped. Before the engineer stripped the mix I made a quick stereo mix just to cassette.....well the rest is history, the movie became a blockbuster, but the title song ‘The Minute I Saw You’ through contractual issues with my label was never released.... Years later Disney have decided that the song deserved its release, but of course records are stereo and they only had the 5.1 Dolby mix. Only my cassette existed of the stereo mix. So for weeks the engineers at Disney have persevered trying to remix the film version to match my stereo mix,. Well they made it, and so after 32 years ‘The Minute I Saw You’ will be released on Friday 9th August for all to hear!

Speaking of John Parr... Does anyone know where to find the alternate version of ST. ELMO'S FIRE?

I heard it a couple years back on Sirius and it sounded like the studio version, but with dubbed-in audience "cheering" effects (to resemble a live recording).  

I cannot seem to find that version anywhere.  Help and thanks!

American Anthem obscure?  Not for those of us who were the target audience in 1986.  The Andy Taylor track alone makes this a 100% MUST OWN for any 80's rock fan.  I purchased the cassette tape on day one. 

Wayne Gretzky's wife. Really good movie. Love these kinds of movies. Cutting Edge, Vision Quest etc.

    • Another band ruined by frontiers.
    • Yeah, sad news. Even though she was a quiet achiever in that group with Stevie getting most of the attention, she sings Lead on two of my favourite "Fleetwood Mac" tracks. "Little Lies" is a Killer. R.I.P.      
    • For me, "Run-D.M.C." in '88 on their "Tougher Than Leather" tour when I was 16. A bit left field, but I loved these guys in my early teens. They weren't afraid to embrace Hard Rock guitars in their music.    
    • I was there too mate. You can't beat the atmosphere of a concert "in the round". I'm surprised it doesn't happen more often.
    • Keep a lid on it 
    • This one looks like a fun ride....  
    • I keep sticking with the band but my initial thoughts are that this is basically hookless. I sure hope this was just released as the first single cause it is loud and fast and isn't considered the best song on the upcoming album.
    • GENERATION LANDSLIDE (Cold Sweat / Lillian Axe members) – Ruling The Street Scene (2022) online sources · NOVEMBER 28, 2022     Comprising former members of both Cold Sweat and Lillian Axe, Las Vegas’ hard rockers GENERATION LANDSLIDE release their debut album ”Ruling The Street Scene”. Fronted by Anthony White, formerly of Cold Sweat and Cold Gin, GENERATION LANDSLIDE is a whirlwind of ’80s and early ’90s-influenced American-style melodic hard rock, complete with big hooks, singalong choruses and a feel-good vibe that continues throughout the entire ”Ruling The Street Scene”. Produced by White, the album kicks off with the ferocious ‘Little Miss Lonely’, then ‘Feel the Sensation’ follows with heavy gang vocals telling the story of finishing your day job and feeling the anticipation of going wild from seeing your favourite band in concert that night from a spiritual way. ‘Love and Pain’ relates the ups and downs in every relationship and the emptiness of being alone and ‘Are You Out There?’ is a tribute to the late Thin Lizzy bassist Phil Lynott. Highly Recommended   01 – Little Miss Lonely 02 – Feel the Sensation 03 – Nite Time Magic 04 – I’ll Keep Movin’ Along 05 – Love and Pain 06 – Are You out There 07 – Sweet Ellie May 08 – The City on the Edge of Forever 09 – Me in You 10 – Standing in the Rain Anthony White – lead vocals, lead guitar Sandy Stein – guitar Jonathon Swanson – bass Ken Koudelka – drums   BUY www.amazon.com/Ruling-Street-Scene-Generation-Landslide/dp/B0BFBV9HN2
