One of you asked for the Frontiers Music special tribute album for the late JIMI JAMISON and FERGIE FREDERIKSEN entitled “TORCH : The Music Remembers Jimi Jamison & Fergie Frederiksen“, conceived by iconic Grammy Award winner and founding member of Survivor and Pride of Lions, Jim Peterik, featuring an impressive array of guest musicians.
“Torch: The Music Remembers Jimi Jamison and Fergie Frederiksen”, was sold exclusively at the Frontiers Rock Festival II in Milan, Italy, last April.
Limited to 500 copies, now it’s sold out.

Just as the musical influence of Dennis “Fergie” Frederiksen (of Le Roux, Angel, Toto, Frederiksen /Phillips, Mecca) and Jimi Jamison (of Target, Cobra and Survivor) reverberated inside the melodic rock community, news of their passing within months of one another in 2014 sent waves of disbelief and sorrow throughout the brotherhood of singers, songwriters and musicians who had been touched by their talent and their spirit.
The loss so profoundly impacted Peterik’s core that it was difficult at first to imagine a universe in which their lights no longer shined. After filtering his grief through the cathartic process of songwriting, Jim found solace by gathering a group of mutual friends to commemorate their departed comrades the only way they knew how – with music.

Peterik recently produced and co-wrote the debut album Risk Everything to introduce the world to the stunning, 5-octave tenor of singer Marc Scherer, who appeared onstage with headliners Pride of Lions at the Frontiers Rock Festival II.
Scherer is a featured performer on ‘Torch: The Music Remembers Jimi Jamison and Fergie Frederiksen’, along with stars like Lars Säfsund and Robert Säll of Work of Art, Kelly Keagy of Night Ranger, Bill Champlin of Chicago, David Pack from Ambrosia, Mike Reno of Loverboy, Bobby Kimball of Toto, Bruce Gaitsch of Chicago, Alessandro Del Vecchio of Hardline, Ricky Phillips of Styx.

The album is comprised of 4 new songs and 6 rare, alternate or previously unreleased versions of existing songs (some never before heard in Europe), along with 6 classics distilled from Jimi and Fergie’s most recent releases on the Frontiers label.

All the songs are awesome pieces of AOR / Melodic Rock, but the four new, especially “The Music Remembers”, featuring Lars Säfsund and Robert Säll of Work of Art, and “Heaven Passes the Torch” featuring Marc Scherer, Mike Reno, Bobby Kimball, Bill Champlin and Jim Peterik, are must haves. And only will be available here.
A real pity that the album was not put on sale at regular retailers… the 500 flew the first day.
A MUST HAVE.
