Doraz – Tourist [1984]

Doraz, “Tourist” hyper rare and awesome Danish indie AOR from 1984 in the same vein like De 5, 2 Am, V6, Toto and Le Roux style. These guys will probably unfamiliar to most. No wonder as their only album was released in Denmark exclusively in 1984. Like their legendary fellow countrymen De 5 or V6 who released cult AOR albums around the same time Doraz are singing in their native language.

Musically they’re completely on par with aforementioned bands and follow a similar stylistic apporach as well. Maybe a tad more Hi-Tech oriented than V6 their brand of hook ladden AOR backed with swirling keys and classic AOR guitar work. Just check out songs like the fabulous opener “Endnu Engang” – that sounds 100% like DE 5, or the super catchy “I Denne By”, a mix of De 5 and 2 AM. Go on with the TOTO-influenced “Nar Det Bli R Nat” or the memorable “Barrikader” that reminds of Le Roux.

As can be expected with a name like Stig Kreutzfeldt (Rugsted and Kreutzfeldt) the production is absolutely flawless. This AOR gem was finally re-released in 1998 on CD (only in Denmark of course) and shortly after out of print again already.
