British singer / songwriter TOMMY MORRISON started his career in the seventies as part of several bands, and then in 1979 was signed to Real Records recording a solo album co-produced by Paul Rogers (Bad Company, Free).
Years after he formed the TOMMY MORRISON BAND and the small label Otis Records was interested in the material of the group. Ed Stasium - known for his work with The Ramones and later Living Colour, arrived from New York to produce the debut album from the band; "Cry To The Sky".
Released in 1985, this obscure LP has little in common with the mid-Eighties sound. This is mostly first half of the decade melodic rock with a pinch of Brit-pop in it: quite good riff driven rockers such as "Simone", "Local Station", the catchy "Breaking Promises" and the more modern "Easy Street", mixed with slow numbers like "Just Lately" and the sweet ballad "That's Where I Go Wrong".
"Cry To The Sky" is not the seventh wonder, but it's extremely hard to find and was steadily requested by many readers on this blog. Audio restored by me.
