AOR – Next Stop L.A. [official reissue Remastered] (2020) *EXCLUSIVE*

Recorded in the 80s & 90s, ”Next Stop L.A.” was Frédéric Slama’s 2nd AOR album released in 2001. Most songs on this album were only demos, re-recorded with different singers years later for the more ‘professional’ AOR releases.
However, these early versions – many taped in 1985 with the help of Michael Thompson, Carlos Vega, Richard Page – have their own charm, and the singers featured, while unknown, are very good.
”Next Stop L.A.” contains the blueprint of many songs that would become AOR (the band)classics later on. All tracks are completely different from the ones with the same name in more recent CD’s from the band.
Long time out of print, it’s now available again almost 20 years later, remastered.

AOR – Return To L.A. [Perris Records official reissue Remastered] (2020) *EXCLUSIVE*

In 2015 Frederic Slama released one of his best AOR albums called “Return To L.A”. This CD was a private pressing quickly sold out. I’m sure if you check your AOR album collection “Return To L.A” is missing for most of you. Additionally, the album / CD was pressed with a very low sound signal.
Now “Return To L.A” is being officially reissued / remastered with a proper sound quality by Parry Records.
If you are one of the thinkers that all AOR albums sound the same, you better check “Return To L.A”: this is one of the most rocking and consistent – if not the best – of all, featuring the likes of Jesse Damon (Silent Rage, Kiss), Tommy Funderburk (King Of Hearts, Airplay), Paul Sabu (Only Child, Kidd Glove), Rick Riso, Bob Harris (Axe, Steve Vai), Erika Norberg (Yngwie Malmsteen), Sarah & Mélissa Fontaine (Chasing Violets), and of course Tommy Denander who co- produced the album.
