V.A. – Heard It On The Radio Vol.7 (2012)
At the end of the ’90s the now defunct Renaissance label edited a wonderful series of CD’s entitled ‘Heard It On The Radio’.
These series included lost ’80s AOR / Melodic Rock songs that once ruled the airwaves, not only well known artists, also rather obscure bands only known by collectors, but truly marvelous.
In those years, it wasn’t easy to find that music available on digital format (mostly never released on CD) in such good audio quality.
Now, an indie label is taking the flag, publishing new volumes and expanding the series. Some of these tracks are from albums finally released digitally nowadays, but many not, and probably that never happens.
So we have here a cool collection of ’80s tunes from an era when melody was the essential motto in music.
A collector’s item for any Classic AOR / Melodic Rock fan.
