All-Star Rock Supergroups are the focus of this week's edition of R4B's Lost Rock Tracks Of The Week.
BBM-Waiting In The Wings(1994)
BBM was essentially Cream minus Eric Clapton, adding the late Gary Moore to the mix. Believe me, they rocked every bit as well with Moore. Their CD, titled Around The Next Dream
was released in the Fall of 1994. If you are a fan of Cream and/or Gary Moore, it is well worth a listen. To my knowledge, this track was the only one to receive significant AOR airplay.

The Firm-Live In Peace(1986)
When you combine the collective talents of Paul Rodgers and Jimmy Page, what's not to like? Well, except the Firm's signature song "Radioactive." I never cared for that one **running very fast** but really liked "Satisfaction Guaranteed" and "All The Kings Horses."
But this, IMHO, masterpiece of a song tops them all, and is as fine of a performance by Rodgers as anything he was involved with, solo or with Bad Company. Also, Jimmy Page's guitar solo is as awesome as any he has performed since "Stairway To Heaven."
**Again, running very fast and dodging rotten tomatoes..
