STEPHEN CRANE – Kicks [AOR Heaven Digitally Remastered reissue] (2021) *EXCLUSIVE*

AOR Heaven Records just put out a remastered reissue of STEPHEN CRANE‘s 1984 album “Kicks“, a pretty unknown recording for AOR / Melodic Rock fans of the genre, but one that will delight your ears with that Eighties unique sound & style.
Crane was member / songwriter for a band called Baby at the end of the Seventies, and his opportunity as solo artist arrived in 1984 by the hand of major label MCA. “Kicks” was co-produced by Jai Winding (Le Roux) who also played keys, and no-other than the great Steve Lukather. In fact, all TOTO guys were involved in the recording including groove master Jeff Porcaro on drums.
We also find Richard Page (Mr. Mister, Pages) and AOR master Tom Kelly (I-Ten, Van Stephenson, Survivor) doing backing vocals, together with brilliant session guitar players such as Duane Sciacqua, Joey Brasler and Ray Pannell…

RINGO STARR All Starr Band – Zoom In (2021)

Former Beatles drummer RINGO STARR recorded “Zoom In“, his quarantine album of new songs co-penned with LA songwriter Diane Warren featuring, among others, Steve Lukather, Nathan East, Sheryl Crow, Lenny Kravitz, Joe Walsh, Dave Grohl and Sir Paul McCartney.
Very few people can generate the goodwill and love that Ringo Starr does globally. Sure, when you’ve been a member of the biggest band ever, you’re bound to have some support, but he just keeps putting out strong material during the five decades since the Fab Four went their separate ways.
He’s always been an icon but his primary focus has always been the music and that…

STEVE LUKATHER – I Found The Sun Again (2021)

Over the course of five decades STEVE LUKATHER has placed an indelible stamp on rock&pop culture.

He continues to be Toto’s band leader, a member of Ringo’s All-Starr Band, and a solo artist performing with multiple ensembles.
His 2021 album ‘I Found the Sun Again‘ features five new original compositions and three covers; Traffic’s ‘Low Spark of High Heeled Boys’, Joe Walsh’s ‘Welcome to the Club’, and Robin Trower’s ‘Bridge of Sighs’, all with a new, fresh and the unmistakable ‘Lukather sound’. Starr and Joseph Williams guests on the original ‘Run To Me’.
Superb

Ranging from sessions for Michael Bolton or Boz Scaggs to Earth, Wind & Fire and The Tubes, here’s some pearls to discover for sure. As example, Luke’s work on Jon Anderson’s solo song ‘Top Of The World’ (this is the LP version, with extended guitar solo) is superb.

STEVE LUKATHER – Candyman [Music On CD reissue 2020] *EXCLUSIVE*

Long time out of print, ”Candyman” is STEVE LUKATHER‘s second solo album from 1994, now reissued by Music On CD with a fantastic sound quality. The recording is a collaboration of musicians who were mostly also in Lukather’s bands Los Lobotomys and TOTO, including drummer Simon Phillips and keyboardist David Paich.
Most of the album was co-written between Lukather and THE TUBES’ unique Fee Waybill and / or keyboard player David Garfield. One song is a Jimi Hendrix cover called ‘Freedom’ and is sung with FREE and BAD COMPANY front-man Paul Rodgers.
“Candyman” was out of print for many years – although a limited 5.1 version appeared some time ago – so this is a really welcome Music On CD Records reissue. The sound quality is crystal clear, much more vibrant than the original press.
Awesome stuff.

Many called this “Read My Lips” as a ‘missing Toto album’, as the overall sound & style here are in the vein of ‘Isolation’ or ‘Fahrenheit’.

STEVE LUKATHER – Lukather [Music On CD ‎reissue] (2019) *EXCLUSIVE*

Bringing to life ‘Classic Albums Available Again on CD’ as read on the sticker, specialized Dutch label Music On CD has been doing a great job reissuing long out of print CD’s. Such is the case with Toto’s guitarist STEVE LUKATHER and his debut solo record “Lukather“.
“Lukather” came about after Toto had been recording and playing for eleven years and the band consensus was to take a break. Since the guitarist had a number of songs written that did not appear on Toto albums, he decided to pursue a solo album.
His intention was to present a dimension of his musical work that fans would not be familiar with, and he collaborated with many notable musicians.
Among the people involved in “Lukather” were Eddie Van Halen, Steve Stevens, Richard Marx…
