Released in 2003, The Journey Goes On is the band's seventh studio album for metal act featuring dual vocalists, Dougie White (Rainbow/Malmsteen) & John Sloman (Lone Star/Gary Moore), the followup to 2000's 'Nowhere To Hide'. Includes guitarist Dennis Stratton (Iron Maiden) & founding members Chris & Tino Troy. The Journey Goes On is a first rate melodic rock album, and should especially appeal to fans of Demon, Ten, Cornerstone, Magnum, and John Payne-era Asia. If you're expecting a NWOBHM revival album though, you're going to be disappointed.

With her mind-blowing mix of heavy metal guitar prowess and bluesy, soulful vocals, Orianthi will draw some justifiably well-earned comparisons to such giants of rock guitar as Jimi Hendrix and her own idol, Carlos Santana, on her 2009 sophomore album, Believe – re-released in 2010 as Believe (II) with four different songs than the original version, including a cover of John Waite's "Missing You." That said, her style hews closer to the more finger-frenetic pyrotechnics of such '70s and '80s icons as Eddie Van Halen and Steve Vai…

"Jam" is the third studio album by British rock band Little Angels. It peaked at number one in the UK Albums Chart in 1993. It set a record for the shortest chart stay by a chart-topping album, climbing to the top and dropping off the bottom in just five weeks. The album features the band's biggest hit, "Womankind", which peaked at no. 12 during a five-week stay in the UK charts. The single "Too Much Too Young" features Canadian singer Bryan Adams on backup vocals, and also became a significant hit for the group, reaching no. 22. "Soap Box" and "Sail Away" were lesser hits, peaking at no. 33 and no. 45 respectively.

he album is a continuation of Bush's multi-layered and multiple musical pursuits and interests. If not her strongest work – a number of songs sound okay without being particularly stellar, especially given Bush's past heights – Red Shoes is still an enjoyable listen with a number of diversions…

This is a double CD of unreleased songs that the Troy brothers had. It also includes demos of not only Praying Mantis but also Escape (Stratus). A band the Troys started with ex-Iron Maiden drummer Clive Burr and ex-Grand Prix vocalist Bernie Shaw. You can't expect much of the sound production as these are demos. This album will be a treasure for Praying Mantis fans.

Chick Corea's Elektric Band II found bassist John Patitucci, drummer Dave Weckl and guitarist Frank Gambale going out on their own and being replaced by Jimmy Earl, Gary Novak and Mike Miller. Saxophonist Eric Marienthal was the only sideman from the first Elektric Band to stick with Corea. Although the new members are not as distinctive as their predecessors, the high-quality material played on this release (which includes Jimmy Heath's "CTA," "Blue Miles" and a variety of Corea originals) is very jazz-oriented and occasionally there are straightahead sections. This set is recommended even to listeners who have not yet acquired a taste for fusion.

Bruce Cockburn - Bruce Cockburn (1970) Japanese Mini-LP 2007  Music

Bruce Cockburn's self-titled debut's blend of diversity, enthusiasm, and innocence never quite resurfaced again in his work, especially in his more clinical, politically inclined tracts of later decades. The opening number, "Going to the Country," still evokes that hippie-esque, back-to-the-earth movement as well as any song ever recorded, complete with a sly wink that keeps it fresh to this day. And since this was 1970, the album also comes equipped with some of those quaint excesses of the period; try the nasal tone poem gracing "The Bicycle Trip." "Musical Friends" remains a lively, happy-go-lucky classic with piano signature lifted from Paul McCartney's playbook; it's difficult to picture the dour Cockburn of more recent years ever having this much fun. In contrast, "Thoughts on a Rainy Afternoon" offers a trance-like, introspective atmosphere reminiscent of British folkie legend Nick Drake.
