PROFILE

805 was founded in the NY area in 1977 by vocalist and guitar player Dave Porter.  While playing covers in the clubs circuit, the band wrote and recorded original songs tirelessly, and eventually was signed by RCA. At the beginning of ’82, at the mansion and studio of Randy Bachman (Bachman Turner Overdrive) in Washington, 805 recorded their debut “Stand In Line”.

“Stand In Line” includes really good songs in a lite-prog AOR style, with a brilliant and crisp production. ”Young Boys” and “Fools Parade” are commercial tunes with a typical eighties ambience, the title track reminds you Genesis Phil Collins-era, while “Making It All Seem True” is a beautifully spiced AOR track (love the keys on this one). ”Defense” has radio potential with very cool synths in the vein of AOR progsters Saga, and “Going Nowhere At All” has magical arrangements sounding pretty British to my ears.

Never released on CD, “Stand In Line” is one of the best commercial proggy AOR albums of the beginning of the ’80s.
