COSMO-SMITH - The Lost Demos [unreleased] (1985)

COSMO-SMITH - The Lost Demos [unreleased] (1985)
Amongst the many requests in REQUEST & FILL CORNER section, there's some that deserve to be full-filled here on the main blog to be enjoyed by all of you. This is the case with COSMO-SMITH "Lost Demos"
Singer Fran Cosmo and Bruce Smith (bass, guitar, vocals) both were part of Orion The Hunter, whom released the self-titled LP in 1984, essential in any AOR / Melodic Rock collection.

Orion The Hunter was a short lived band and after they broke up Cosmo & Smith continued writing and recording material together.
The songs from COSMO-SMITH remain unreleased and it's a shame, because these are shining melodic tunes even more mid-eighties AOR oriented than the duo previous band.
Only four tracks, but all are pure AOR delight, professionally recorded and with an excellent sound quality.
Enjoy & Collect!

1 - Highway In Your Eyes
2 - Sad Affair
3 - You're The One
4 - Is It Love

Fran Cosmo: vocals, backing vocals, guitars
Bruce Smith: guitars, bass, keyboards, backing vocals
Bruce Kulick: guitars
John Schuler: drum programming

These are the best aor tracks i've ever listened in 10/15 years i's a shame that in AOR world few people know about this project.

Pedazo de EP, calidad total, AOR con sentimiento, ese que nunca volverá, melodías mágicas e inolvidables.

Es la primera vez que escribo en su blog Camelblue, y quiero expresarle que en mi opinión es usted el maestro absoluto del Hard Rock AOR, lo que usted ha compartido y sigue compartiendo con nosotros, nadie mas lo hubiese hecho y mucho menos con ese afán y perfección. Le estoy eternamente agradecido, gracias a ti, el AOR vivirá por siempre en nuestros corazones.
