PAGES – Pages 3 [Japanese remaster SHM-CD] Out Of Print

Requested by many here, the last, self-titled album by PAGES in its Japanese remastered edition on SHM-CD is a must have. This was a Limited Release which turned out of print soon. Not to be confused with the ’78 self-titled debut – this ‘Pages’ is their 1981, final album.
“Pages” not only is a superb AOR album, but also the sound of this remastered reissue on SHM-CD is terrific.
Before achieving world-wide success with Mr. Mister, Richard Page founded Pages alongside keyboardist / vocalist Steve George in the late Seventies. The duo released 3 delicious albums, being this last “Pages”, a true representation of pure US AOR / FM music from the early ’80s, a showcase of the best L.A. session musicians on show.
We have here masters like Jay Graydon on guitar, Neil Stubenhaus & Abraham Laboriel…

Mr. MISTER – I Wear The Face [Japan AOR CITY 1000 series] (2016)

As requested by many, here’s the not easy to find reissue of Mr. MISTER‘s LP “I Wear The Face“, in this remastered reissue featuring the original artwork, released as part of the Sony Music Japan campaign titled AOR CITY 1000.
Originally out in 1984, “I Wear The Face” is the first album by Mr. Mister, the band lead by talented Richard Page who turned down the offer to be Toto’s frontman (!)
This first Mr. Mister effort may not be as AORish as their next monster hit album Welcome To The Real World, but it’s a great one in its own right.

Mr. MISTER – Welcome To The Real World +6 [Rock Candy remastered & reloaded]

The two most celebrated Mr. MISTER albums have been ‘Remastered & Reloaded‘ by Rock Candy Records, featuring a bunch of awesome bonus tracks and a very interesting essay about the recording process.
Welcome To The Real World” is the most famous of all, including the two classic, timeless singles “Broken Wings” and “Kyrie” both went to #1 on the US singles chart.
Although Mr. MISTER achieved colossal commercial success there has always been a vast under appreciation of their musical worth. Unfairly viewed by many as a faceless mid ‘8’s rock & pop band, they eventually scored two worldwide hit singles, their sound showcasing technical ability far beyond the level of musical proficiency normally expected.
Indeed, there is an argument that elevates Mr. MISTER into that rarefied breed of highly respected AOR acts such as Toto, Chicago…

Mr. MISTER – Go On… +4 [Rock Candy remastered & reloaded]

The two most celebrated Mr. MISTER albums have been ‘Remastered & Reloaded‘ by Rock Candy Records, featuring a bunch of awesome bonus tracks and a very interesting essay about the recording process.
Go On…” is the second, an underrated gem including terrific compositions.
When Mr. MISTER’S ‘Welcome To The Real World’ album eventually became a huge international seller, producing two massive hit singles in Kyrie and Broken Wings, the music business hailed them as all conquering heroes destined to take their place in the rock ‘n’ roll hall of fame.
So much attention was focused on this their follow-up album, the meticulously crafted “Go On…”, with many eyes and ears confidently predicting another massive success…

RICHARD PAGE – Peculiar Life (2010)

“The album title pretty much sums it up for me” Richard Page says with a wry smile.The veteran writer/artist is referring to both his second solo album, “Peculiar Life” and his bifurcated career, which belies F.
