|Mr. MISTER - Welcome To The Real World [Rock Candy remaster]|
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.
"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 '80s rock & pop band, they
eventually scored two worldwide hit singles, their sound showcasing
technical ability far beyond the level of musical proficiency normally
Indeed, there is an argument that elevates Mr. MISTER into that rarefied
breed of highly respected AOR acts such as Toto, Chicago and Steely
Dan. Based in Los Angeles, the band was originally formed by Steve
George and Richard Page (later adding über drummer Pat Mastelotto and
guitarist Steve Farris).
Page and George initially recorded unsuccessfully as 'Pages' before
changing members and switching their name to Mr. MISTER, they were then
signed to RCA Records by Paul Atkinson, a former member of revered
British psychedelic outfit the Zombies.
"Welcome To The Real World", was the band’s second album and saw them
facing a make or break situation. Fortunately it was a happy ending,
with the album producing two #1 hit singles, in "‘Broken Wings" and
"Kyrie" (plus "Is It Love" peaking at #8) and going on to sell in excess
of two million copies.
Co-produced by former Yes soundman Paul De Villiers, the album showcases
a collection of highly polished tracks, fusing lyrics, melody and
showmanship into one glorious clutch of tracks that actually owe as much
to progressive rock and light AOR as they do to catchy FM rock &
The Rock Candy release of "Welcome To The Real World" is a true 'Special
Deluxe Collector’s Edition' as they say, not only for the fully 24bit
remastered sound, but also 6 great bonus tracks.
Additionally the 16 page full colour booklet is excellent featuring rare
Mr. MISTER photos from the era, new interviews with members of the band
and the story of the recording.
A MUST HAVE.
