Profile Private release from 1985  by Lorin Rowan & The Edge, a San Francisco Bay Area band, titled “Supply & Demand”. Rowan and the guys play here that characteristic mid-Eighties American blend of melodic rock with radio friendly poppy melodies and some lite AOR touches. Despite its indie origin, “Supply & Demand” was recorded with a high production standard, featuring a layered multi-track technique. Opener “Waited Too Long” includes a varied kind of guitar sounds, synths, regular plus Simmons drums, and lots of singers performing harmony vocals in the chorus accompanying Rowan’s sweet vocals.

“Whatever I Got To Say” has more ‘clean’ and atmospheric guitar work and a lullaby melody akin Franke & The Knockouts, “War Games” is not far from Rick Springfield circa 1983, then :I Spy” could have been recorded by Preview. “Oh Girl” is poppy little ditty without major pretension, but things get back on track with “Tell Her You Love Her” with its strong guitars, ‘mysterious’ synth background and AORish vocals. A very enjoyable slice of mid 80s American rock music.
