BRIAN McDONALD GROUP - Desperate Business (1987)

BRIAN McDONALD GROUP - Desperate Business
Requested in "Request & Fill Corner" section...

Need to write a review? Not at all...
Any serious AOR / Melodic Rock fan MUST have this one.
'80s AOR gem, catchy rhythm songs, superb choruses, tons of keys, fantastic melodies.
Majestically produced by Beau Hill, with a guest appearance of Winger's REB BEACH on guitar solos, and FIONA singing backing vocals on 'These are the good times'.

As requested, the CD reissue ripped at maximum quality.
An absolute classic.

Not an essential release at all imho although it is considered a classic by most.
(Same as with Urgent (US) - Cast The First Stone for instance.)
Brian McDonald Project is about 20 times better in my book.)
Tried to find my copy of the CD when i read the request, but again my complete and utter lack of a workable archiving system for my sad excuse for a collection rendered my efforts as futile as resisting the Borg.
Glad to see at least someone could be of help.

Thanks a bunch. Hard to find this cd at a fair price. Should have been reissued by now.

@ troynew :
I have to disagree with you this time my friend.
Maybe extremely cheesy lyrics, but at least tracks 10, 9 & 1 are classic tunes.

Thanks for the link. I bought the vinyl short after the download. I must say I cannot listen to another album. Best discovery this year.
