GRAHAM BONNET - REEL TO REAL: THE ARCHIVES (1987-1992 LIMITED REMASTERED 3CD BOX SET) 2018
JUNE 29TH, 2018 RELEASE: Europe IMPORT 3CD REMASTERED LIMITED BOX Set! Although this new collection of unreleased recordings only covers a small part of the Graham Bonnet story, few frontmen can claim to have had such a lengthy and diverse journey, first finding fame as part of The Marbles duo, who enjoyed a hit with the Bee Gees' 'Only One Woman' in 1968, followed by a solo career across the 1970s, again enjoying further success with the Bee Gees' disco flavoured 'Warm Ride'. Achieving what was possibly his greatest success in 1979 with Rainbow's "Down To Earth", worldwide hits followed with the singles 'All Night Long' and 'Since You Been Gone'. Further solo success beckoned with the song 'Night Games' from the "Line-Up" album in 1981, before Graham briefly joined The Michael Schenker Group for 1982's "Assault Attack". Graham then formed Alcatrazz with a then little known Swedish guitarist called Yngwie J. Malmsteen, who would be replaced by another legendary axe-slinger, Steve Vai, before the singer hooked up with Chris Impellitteri and the band Impellitteri, Graham has subsequently recorded with Forcefield, Japan's Anthem, the Taz Taylor Band and Blackthorne with Bob Kulick."Reel to Real: The Archives 1987-1992" focuses on a short, five year period, when the singer was partly based in Australia. Kicking off with three tracks recorded in Los Angeles in 1987, 'Tonite I Fly', 'Reel To Real' and 'The Dancer', they feature Alcatrazz guitarist Danny Johnson. 'Whiplash', 'Long Time Gone', covers of 'Summer In The City' and 'River Deep - Mountain High' plus 'Midnight Crossing' were recorded in Adelaide, Australia in 1989 during the period that Graham had relocated down under. The first disc is completed by 'Double Cross My Heart', 'Hearts Under Fire' and 'Dead Man Walking'.Before finding worldwide fame with Rainbow in 1979, Graham had enjoyed some of his biggest solo successes in Australia, which would explain the inclusion of covers of Bob Dylan's 'It's All Over Now, Baby Blue', and the aforementioned Bee Gees' disco staple 'Warm Ride' on the two 1989 solo concerts featured on discs 2 and 3, recorded in Melbourne and Adelaide respectively. Although slightly incongruous amongst the hard rock of Rainbow, MSG and Alcatrazz, the songs actually sit comfortably among Graham's solo versions of 'All Night Long', 'Since You Been Gone', 'Desert Song' and 'Island In The Sun'. Solo tracks such as Russ Ballard's 'S.O.S.' are included as well as Alcatrazz's 'God Blessed Video', a
