|Mr. MISTER - Go On... [Rock Candy remaster] (2015)|
The two more 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 story. Sadly, however, that was not
"Go On..." suffered at the hands of a record company corporate
reshuffle, one that saw it change hands and clean out its long time
staff. RCA had been sold to German media group BMG who set in motion a
restructuring of the company, a place where Mr. MISTER’s new music was
It was a disappointing state of affairs as the band had poured their
heart and soul into crafting an album that, in many respects, displayed a
far more confident and courageous sound.... but one that BMG were not
Utilising producer Kevin Killen who had previously crafted records by U2
and Peter Gabriel, "Go On..." elevates the band to another creative
The sound is perfectly pristine, boasting a brace of superb songs
including the all time great "Stand And Deliver" and the exquiste single
"Healing Waters" wrapped up in a progressive rock&pop sheen that,
even to this day, makes it entirely unfathomable as to why the record
label failed to see its potential.
In fact, if you ask me, although I love Mr. MISTER's previous album, I like "Go On..." even more.
The record retained the same themes, stylistics and quality of work of
‘Welcome To The Real World’, this time a bit more darker and moodier,
but more elegant at the same time. The sound production is awesome
crystal clear, and there's an adult AOR fragrance floating all over.
Rock Candy's remaster of Mr. MISTER "Go On..." handled by Jon Astley is
excellent, as are the hard to find 4 tracks addded as bonus, the great
16 page full colour booklet, the essay and interview, etc.
A MUST HAVE.
