NANTUCKET – V [Retrospect Records remastered]
As requested, here’s the more AOR album from North Carolina’s best melodic rock export of the ’70s and ’80s; NANTUCKET. Starting activities in the second half of the Seventies, NANTUCKET released three pretty rocking albums signed to major label Epic and toured with big names from the industry.
Entering the Eighties the band released two albums, being this fifth effort tited “V” appeared in 1984, and of course, embracing the American AOR sound from the era.
“V” was originally released via a NC local recording label, hence the LP became quite hard to find over the years. It wasn’t until Retrospect Records remastered & reissued “V” on CD for the first time that most fans from all over the world were able to discover for the first time this classic Eighties US AOR record.
Great melodies, catchy songs, and the sound quality obtained with the remastering is very good.
