STREET TALK – Transition [MelodicRock Records reissue +7]
One of the finest Swedish AOR acts – STREET TALK – featuring among others stellar vocalist Göran Edman, got their most celebrated albums reissued by MelodicRock Records with exclusive all new artwork and each including several bonus tracks. This expanded reissue includes 3 albums limited to just 500 units each.
All three albums are long out of print, highly sought after and when listed, fetch high prices on Ebay.
Let’s go with “Transition“.
Street Talk is the brainchild of Swedish keyboardist/songwriter Fredrik Bergh. After their really well received debut in the late Nineties, second album “Transition” was released in 2000 featuring Edman again on a set of smooth AOR tunes.
“Transition” it’s an album that really defines the Street Talk sound and one that showcases just how versatile a singer Goran Edman really is: sounds like he was born to sing straight-up AOR.
Backed by sublime melodies and impeccable production, Edman really shines here.
MelodicRock Records reissue of “Transition” features new cover artwork, the Japanese bonus track “I’ll Always Remember You” and six additional bonus demo tracks.
Appeared last year, it has become pretty exhausted right now, so if you see a copy buy it with eyes closed, not only it’s a great AOR album, but also a collector’s piece.
