Reggie Knighton Band 9 Years, 12 Months ago Karma: 2
Has anybody listened to this album that Rock Candy recently reissued? I must admit I'd never heard of him, and the only member of his band I had was Brian Ray, whose solo album I reviewed ages ago and has recently been in Paul McCartney's band. Anyway, it was getting all kinds of good things said about it, so I checked it out and was seriously impressed. It's a weird record, lyrically off the wall and humourous, and sounds like a lot of things while not really sounding like anybody if you know what I mean. Quirky, awesome production in the Queen style with huge drums like John Bonham, all for a bunch of upbeat power pop rockers. Rock Candy don't reissue much in the way of dead wood, and this must rank as one of my favourite things they've put out. Anyone else heard it / rediscovered it?

Had this one on tape for years and always found it a very interesting if quirky hard rock release. And while I'm sure a lot of people just won't get what Reggie is all about, if you take the time this album will work it's magic over you.

Also for me this is the kind of stuff Rock Candy should be re-releasing, the more obscure yet brilliant AOR.melodic rock that few people have heard. Now where's the Teri De Sario, Moscara, and NRG CD's ?.

Indeed - they put out Cobra and Montrose, both of which are obviously essential albums, but I already had them both on CD in the first place. It's great that they dusted off this record and made it available on CD. I'd seen a lot of good reports about it when they put it back out there and I'd love them to do the same with other albums that never got a shot on CD, if they're as good as this!
