Profile This excellent 11 track album by J.J. PANTESCO “What’s Real” was released on a tiny indie label of the USA back in 1992. This can definitely be classified as one of the truly obscure, yet high quality AOR indies from the early 90’s.

What you get is clever melodic AOR song writing with memorable flowing melodies both uptempo and catchy tunes. Lively keyboards and smooth vocals round out an enjoyable listening experience with some very good guitar work too.

If you dig that late 80’s style and sound, similar to Scott Stephens, Rick Rock (Canadian artist), Theode Scott, Lance Powers and TEed Poley, then this is a must have for your collection.
