THE ARROWS were an AOR band formed in 1981 in Toronto, Canada. Their first release was an EP called ‘Misunderstood’.
After a couple of line-up changes, singer Dean McTaggart recruited guitar player Doug McAskill (Deja Vu, The Stampeders, Moxy), bassist Peter Bleakney
and drummer Gary Craig, and signed a deal with A&M Records.
Their debut album ‘Stand Back’ was produced and co-written by David Tyson (who co-wrote Alannah Myles’ #1 hit ‘Black Velvet’) and who also took over the keyboards on this record.
The song ‘Meet Me In The Middle’ became a hit single in 1984 and charted in various countries world-wide.
After a couple of more line-up changes and one more album release......THE ARROWS split up in 1986.
Dean McTaggart later on worked as song-writer and producer for Tina Arena and Amanda Marshall, and released three solo albums.
I love this Pop AOR Kind Of style!. Smooth AOR with a very GLASS TIGER,SPANDAU BALLET Kind Of Sound.
Soft Pop-rockers like the amazing "Say It Isn´t True" (maybe their best song!) or beautiful balladas and mid tempos, make this album something really really good.
I recomend this album for those who are very into Lite AOR, guys you won´t be dissapointed at all!!
‘Stand Back’ has been long time out of print and become a rare collector’s item. With the help of Universal Music Germany,
YesterRock remastered all songs and is now re-releasing this sought after album.
