SAFIRE - Safire (1995)

SAFIRE - Safire (1995)

Australia never was a prolific land for AOR bands, but some good outfits come out from the land of Oz.
Safire is one of 'em, they play an infectious melodic hard rock / AOR music.
This 6 track only CD keep you interested from start to finnish, with catchy songs.
Great production for an indie release, now out of print and very hard to find original.
Give this a listen, you will love it.

1. Now You've Gone 3:35
2. Love Conquers All 4:30
3. After the Rain 4:39
4. In Your Eyes 4:34
5. Set You Free 4:10
6. White at Night 4:53

EXPORT - Living In The Fear Of The Private Eye (1986)

Export was an UK band in the same ligue as STRANGEWAYS, RIO and similar.
AOR at its best, with great choruses and keys here and there.
The guitar-man is the monster Steve Morris (HEARTLAND, SHADOWMAN, NEWMAN, GRAND ILLUSION, etc).
All songs are fantastic IMHO, very well played and produced.
1986=What a year!
Incredibly, this little gem never was released on CD, but no problem, this vinyl-rip sounds million bucks, you must hear this pristine rip!
Myself made artwork included.
Highly recommended.
