Profile Shamely this one is less consistent than their debut one but still pleasant, release in 1992 on Polydor Germany, recorded and mixed at the famed Wisseloord Studios in the Netherlands. Jürgen Beitel has left, leaving the quartet: Ricky, André, Marc and of course Roko. (Koen van Baal is credited with keyboards for this recording.) Singles from this release were “Is It Love”, “Heaven”, and the uplifting “All Your Love”. Open Invitation is full of fantastic riffs and memorable solos. There are some pretty ballads, too. “Hot Nights In Africa” and “Deadline” contain killer riffs, “All Your Love” and “You Are An Angel” are great examples of catchy AOR.
