Profile There’s not much info about CHRIS ANDREW or his “Hit And Run” album recorded in L.A. around 1986 and released one year later through the indie label Roadside Records. The well known and always expressive Amy Holland is credited on backing vocals.

Andrew sings and play all the instruments helped in the production duties by Ross Pallone (Bryan Duncan, David Pack). As you would expect, this is a pure mid-eighties sounding album with glowing guitars, candy-floss synths and compressed drums.

Andrew’s vocals are good and polished for this style, which in many places reminds you Brian Spence, Billy Satellite, John Cafferty (Rocky IV soundtrack) and US Urgent. That’s say: rockin’ + poppy AOR with some hi-tech elements.

    great song Fantasy flip side is fantasy instrumental. Record look new, but found a crack in the record. 7″ record no way for me to play it. I’m thinking I may have got this in 1987 in Palm Springs Ca at the New Balloons night club where I worked.
