Great stuff.

With the arrival of Nelson's comeback album 'Lightning Strikes Twice' and an excellent performance at this years Firefest, the interest in brothers Matthew and Gunner seems to have reached fever pitch. And to stoke these fires even more, Frontiers have decided to release two (see Nelson live album review elsewhere in this mag) new, or should that be retro, Nelson albums, that will have any self respecting fan of the band almost overdosing on the boys music. 'Before The Rain' is an eighteen track demo CD that chronicles the music and songs of Nelson before (obviously) they became multi million selling recording artists. The two brothers you see wanted to hone their song writing skills and work on perfecting their music, so decided to take a musical odyssey around the world to accomplish this. Firstly they journeyed to New Jersey to work with Jack Ponti and some of their friends (who later became Skid Row), then off they flew to Australia to write with Graham Goble of the Little River Band, finally it was over to the UK to continue their song writing journey with Adrian Gurvitz and Russ Ballard. After they had returned to the US the brothers began recording the songs they had written on their musical travels, in a converted garage, with the then unknown producer Marc Tanner, and these songs are what can be found on 'Before The Rain'.

So what songs are on offer? Well you'll get in their raw forms most of the hits off the 'After The Rain album', plus many more that you won't have heard before and these are what makes this album a must have. Songs that let you see where the two Nelson Brothers came from and how they worked at their craft until that fateful day when John David Kalodner (no I'm not writing his name twice) came a knocking at their door, offering them the opportunity they had so long wanted and worked towards.

Fans of the band (and after Firefest there will be many more) can buy this album knowing that what they will hear is an album of tracks that will in equal measure make them smile, sing and appreciate all the hard work that these two men have put into their music over the last twenty years or so. This is also an album that will not let them down in any way at all. Great stuff.
