Profile One of the most sought-after Norwegian AOR-releases ever, this item is as close to perfect as it can get! Avenue Talk were a revelation when they made their debut 25 years ago, with sensational hi-tech AOR in the same mould as 2 Brave, Creation, Secret Wish, Small Affairs and Guys & Disquise. The band formed in 1987 and was the support act for A-ha on their Norway tour at the same year. In 1988 they released their one and only album titled “Cry For Mercy” via Slagerfabrikken label and then vanished… “Full Reaction”,”I Still Love You” (also released as a video),”Russian Roulette”,”Tomorrow” are the best tracks. The bonus track doesn’t benefit the album at all coz is way too techno “The World”(even though it makes you stomp your feet!). An album that is good to listen while you are drinking some red wine with your couple…
