VIRGINIA WOLF – Push [remastered] (2010)
VIRGINIA WOLF’s self-titled album introduced rock audiences to the vocal talents of british AOR legend Chris Ousey (HEARTLAND.
Besides, its place in rock history is assured, since it features a young Jason Bonham (the son of Led Zeppelin legend John Bonham) on drums.
The band followed the debut with a second album, “Push” in 1987, recorded and produced in San Francisco, USA, by Kevin Elson (JOURNEY, EUROPE) with a lush, polished sound.
Just like the self-titled debut, “Push” remains as a classic in AOR history, featuring great vocal harmonies, punchy guitar / keyboard work and catchy song structures.
“Don’t Break Away”, “Standing On The Edge Of Time”, “Let It Go”, “You Don’t Know What You’ve Got”, “Can You Feel The Fire” are pure classy AOR ’80s AOR tunes in the vein of LOVERBOY, FOREIGNER an alikes.
Recently reissued with an excellent remastered job, it’s the new generations opportunity to discover an amazing classic, and to the old school rockers, to enjoy this refreshed version including 2 bonus tracks never released before on CD.
A Highly Recommended Classic.
