A mega rare CD only released in Australia in limited quantity.
ADRIAN'S WALL was Adrian Campbell's child, a studio project with local professional musicians.
Campbell, a session vocalist himself, has recorded and arranged backing vocals in countless albums in the land of Oz.
Around 1976, was the lead singer and stable member of AVALANCHE, a hard rock band whose debut album had moderate success, opening live shows for major international bands.
In the 80's, Adrian has recorded an album with the band DE ARROW (pre - ROXUS), sadly still unreleased, from which only 4 demo tracks are floating around, a great keyboard oriented melodic rock / AOR stuff.
As said, ADRIAN'S WALL was his own project, not strictly AOR, mixing many genres, but encompassing all the styles we like.
My favourite song here is "Finally Deciding", a good resume of the overall sound.
Featuring the great BRETT GARSED [NELSON, SOLO] on guitars (before his international stardom in the USA), this CD is a delightful listen, something different from the usual on this site.
A recommended addition to your collection, good music and very, very rare, hard to find album.
