Wilco - Outtasite (Outta Mind) (1997)
Yet another band (more or less) relegated to AAA (Adult Album Alternative) radio today, much to my chagrin. As if I needed anymore proof that today's practice of splitting Rock Radio into sub formats really bites. Oh, well..I've never forgotten this one.
Corrosion Of Conformity - Albatross (1995)
This is the track that placed this Raleigh-based Hard Rock band on the National AOR radar.
The band, which is currently working on a new album, also has three other AOR hits - spanning from 1995 to late 2000 - to their credit, as well as the track "Big Problems" from the Clerks Movie Soundtrack
Sting & Jeff Beck - I Been Down So Long (1986)
Here is a rarity for you..
Not only is this a Closet Classic/lost AOR hit from the Spring of '86, it is nearly impossible to find; it was released on a (now) long out of print LP Various Artists: Live! For Life
, for Cancer research. In case you are curious, here is a link to the track listing.
This track also feature some other performers - some well known. Sting will introduce them as you listen to this track.
As always, Rock on, Redszone!
Adieu from R4Blue.
