An essential purchase.

Paul Sabu's 'Call Of The Wild', the essential Sabu collection, featuring 16 remastered classics with an in depth history of one of AOR's true Gods, will be released on July 4th through Z Records. The emmy winning singer, song-writer and guitarist has, over the the last quarter-century, sharpened his talents as a producer, session guitarist and songwriter, releasing albums under Kidd Glove, Paul Sabu, Sabu & Only Child. His name is a familiar one to music industry veterans, most of whom know little or nothing about his early disco productions. His work with artists such as David Bowie, Alice Cooper, Little Caesar, Lee Aaron, Madonna, Malice, Robbie Neville, Motels, The Nelsons, Prince, John Waite, Tattoo Rodeo, Fatal Smile, and Shania Twain have earned him fourteen Platinum and eleven Gold records. He also has a lot of movie and tv series soundtrack credits, among which are Accused, American Drive-In, Assault Of The Killer Bimbos, Baywatch, Beverly Hill 90210, Diving In, Ghost Town, Goulies II, Hard Rock Zombies, Meatballs 4, Million Dollar Mystery, Sex And The City, To Die For, Trick Or Treat, Twin Sitters, Vice Versa, and many more. His own musical vehicles were Sabu and Only Child, bands with which he recorded albums that were described as big sounding, with lots of depth, fat keyboards, blistering guitars and vocals, combined with great choruses. No small wonder that he was the darling of several Melodic Rock magazines, who dubbed him an L.A. session king and AOR hero! 

So on to the record, and when the words 'Best Of' are uttered I wonder sometimes are these the best tracks that could possibly be offered up from an artist. Well in the case of 'Call Of The Wild' they are, as there are so many outstanding tracks on this release its truly mouth-watering. The album kicks off with the brilliant 'Angeline' from the 1985 classic 'Heartbreak' and vocally Sabu has the aura of David Coverdale and the looks of Kane Roberts, this is swiftly followed by the pounding rock anthem 'Just Ask' from one of my all time favourite albums, the'Only Child' debut from 1988. Next up is title track of the collection, 'Call Of The Wild', again from 'Heartbreak' and features some soaring choruses and great vocals, this is followed by, in my opinion, one of the greatest melodic rock songs ever released, the storming 'I Believe in You', again from the Only Child debut, and why this album never sold millions of copies is beyond me?

Sabu Tracks ''Cherie' and 'Arms Of A Hangman' are aired up next before we are treated to the awesome title track from 'Heartbreak' with its great hook and composition. 'Mad Dog' from the 2006 Sabu offering is followed by the sexy & sassy 'I Wanna Touch' from Only Child, before the 'Kidd Glove' classic ' Who Else Is Touching You'. Then the MTV hit 'Always' from 1988 with its great chorus and awesome guitar solo precludes the outrageous 'Scream Until You Like it' from Ghoulies II, as covered by W.A.S.P. The catchy 'Hot Flash' from 'Heartbreak' and another personal favourite of the mine, the brilliant 'Save A Place in Your Heart' from the Only Child debut, follow before Sabu tracks 'Bad Blood' and 'Spitfire' bring this magnificent collection of songs to a close.

So with an all new Paul Sabu studio album in the vein of the classics 'Heartbreak' and 'Only Child' due in early 2012, and his first UK live appearance at Z Rock later that year, things are on the up for Mr Sabu, and I for one can't wait. An essential purchase.
