Profile “Hollywood Rain” is the only album of the band released only in Japan from Alfa International in 1992. Not much seems to be known about them but it is flawless 80’s AOR. Their style of AOR makes you feel so good. The songs do vary which is a good thing because each AOR track makes you want to play it again. Influences range from Ian Thomas, Stan Meissner, Roman Grey, Thowsen and Steel Breeze. It’s a shame this band never made it big while most avid collectors have no idea what this sounds like.
