I don't know how many of you out there own one or (even) two albums of Time Gallery, but I suspect not that many.
For the uninitiated, this Scandinavian band has released two studio albums: a self-titled one in 1989 and 'Kaleidoscope' in 1992.
Their style of music can be described as a catchy mix of hi-tech AOR, stylized Melodic Rock and European Westcoast.
Until recently one had to pay top dollars to get hold of a Time Gallery album, but that's behind us now,
because the debut album it's being re-issued, remastered and including and no less than four additional tracks.
The four additional bonus tracks include the band's first ever 7'' single "Carefree Days" from 1986, and its B-side "Hearts Of Hunger".
The single (vinyl only) was produced by Ulf Wahlberg & Time Gallery.
"Gentle Touch" was originally the B-side of their 1991 'Love Smash' single which was produced by Time Gallery, Keith Olsen & Nik Foss and written by Johan Stentorp,
Patric de Vee & Time Gallery.
"Give It Up", previously unreleased, is rare private cassette outtake from the early years.
This is what AOR is all about folks!! This is a fantastic cd. Talk about catchy hooks!! Plenty of killer keyboards and tasty guitars and vocal harmonies galore.
They also have a bit of eighties pop thrown in for good measure too, A-Ha, Go West.. that sort of thing. It's tight, infectious, and melodic.
All tracks have been carefully Digitally Remastered for this re-issue, strictly limited to 1000.
A must for any Westcoast / AOR fan.
