|STAN BUSH - ST [Rock Candy remaster] (2011) |
After the recent feature here of STAN BUSH & Barrage 2nd reissue, many of you asked for his first album remastered by Rock Candy Records and released in 2011. Well, seems this baby is out of print too, and will receive a second press as well very soon.
You still can find some copies of "Stan Bush Rock Candy Remastered & Reloaded" first edition on sites like eBay, but if you're a rabid collector I recommend to catch one pronto as the prices of the remaining copies are growing faster.
As previously said, Stan Bush self-titled debut garnered healthy critical acclaim and cemented Bush's reputation as top class songwriter.
With a crisp production by Kevin Beamish (REO Speedwagon, Y&T), some of the best session musicians from the L.A. scene like Alan Pasqua, Mike Baird or Leland Sklar and packed with terrific songs, this is one of best debut albums from the early '80s Melodic Rock / AOR period.
It should be noted that Bush & management could have hired top session six-string players as well, but Stan decided to record every guitar heard on this recording. Apart from his smooth vocals and excellent songwriting abilities, Stan Bush owns a distinctive guitar style as well.
From the irresistible opener "It's Hot", the glorious AOR of "Say The Word", "Keep Your Love Alive" and "Say The Word" to the supreme ballad "Can't Live Without Love", this disc represents the true first half of the '80s sound in this genre like few, still sounding fresh today.
All tracks are great, but my absolute favorite is the classic "Fire In My Heart", which alone is worth the price of this disc.
Bush co-wrote all the songs except "All American Boy" penned by another AOR myth; Van Stephenson, who later will record his own version. This track is slightly different sonically, produced by legend Andy Johns who also engineered the whole album.
Although Stan Bush's second album is the best of his career, this self-titled debut runs close sporting all the hooks, feeling and magic from the seminal US Melodic Rock AOR sounds.
A Must Have.
