Profile Observant AOR collectors might have seen a rare 4-track CD by NASH! wich contains two vocal tracks and two instrumental versions of these songs. NASH! is of course a vocalist / keyboarder / songwriter from the Netherlands and he released this fabulous piece of Hi-Tech AOR in 1990. 

Besides the two tracks from the single CD “Take Me High” is a great Hi-tech AOR track with swirling keys, tasty guitars and a great chorus à la Clif Magnfess / Chris Irvine mixed with Chris Sutton and “Gimme That Feeling” which is a wonderful midtempo track with awesome arrangements that, with its atmospheric keyboards, great harmonies and another catchy refrain sounds very close to Metro or Six to Nine there are eight additional Hi-Tech AOR rockers and ballads on offer which are exact same high quality.

Just a few examples: “So They Say” is an incredibly catchy uptempo track with a punchy Hi-Tech arrangment and fantastic backing vocals. This completely reminds of Thowsen, vintage Jack Wagner or John Marshall. “Price Of Love” is an ultra emotional tune with slick keyboard arrangements and a very cool guitar solo. NASH!’s ultra passionate vocals which more than once remind of Thowsen, Chris Sutton or Chris Irvine are just stunning here.Pure uptempo AOR in the best Jeffrey Ross or Andy Baum tradition is what you get on “No Matter Where The Wind Blows”. Another brilliant guitar solo and backing vocals make this an absolute joy to listen to.

The production on all ten tracks is excellent (not only for an Indie pressing) and I’m absolutely sure that all Hi-Tech AOR fans out there will dig this little hidden secret.
