TORINO - Customized (1988)



Another brillant AOR / rock band from britain.

Strong rockers with incisive keyboards, soaring vocals and pretty good production.
Never released on CD (a shame), this album became a hard hunt in underground AOR circles. No fillers, just killers.
I've decided to post this album here after the rip-off from different sites of my original upload to other blog some time ago.
Decent transfer to digital, enough to enjoy this gem.

1. Out Of The Fire
2. Steal My Thunder
3. Somewhere
4. Can't Let Go
5. Boys Go Wild
6. Call Of The Wild
7. Take My Heart Away
8. Dance Crazy
9. Never Surrender

Stuart Fox Vocals
Paul Diamond Bass
Brian Dixon Drums
Barry McKeown Guitar

I used to play guitar for this band, but not on this album, although I musically wrote. Out of The Fire, Somewhere, and Take My Heart Away. I joined the band which had a different line up and where called Strangeheart, I suggested we call the band Gran Torino, which was later shortened to Torino after I left the band. Great days. I am actually thinking of re-recording instrumental guitar versions of the three songs I co wrote with Stuart. It's nice to know people still like the music all these years on. Keep Rockin'.

Would you consider this, subject to your free time ? ;)
