I was a bit cranky last week, waiting for various things to happen with the website transition. God it's good to be back. Didn't Gary Glitter sing a song like that? dogrun

Miles Long - 1986 Fasten Your Seatbelts (EP)

ARTIST: Miles Long
ALBUM: Fasten Your Seatbelts (EP)
LABEL: Miles Long Music
YEAR: 1986


LINEUP: Tony Ray - vocals * Tim Peregrina, Larry Hightshoe - guitars, backing vocals * Russ Allen-Smith - piano, keyboards, synths, backing vocals * Jimmy Jet Spalding - bass * Dean Rhode - drums, linn drums, percussion, backing vocals

TRACK LISTING: 01 Love Light * 02 I Need Love * 03 Nighttime Hunter * 04 Give It All Up

Miles Long released a private LP pressing back in 1986, and it's a goodie! I would compare this 4-track EP to some of the best indie based AOR ever to be heard during this timeframe. These guys were very professional sounding, and with nearly the entire band providing backing vocals, you can imagine the harmonies are right up there. From San Francisco, I'm hearing some comparisons to Fortune, Journey (especially the first track 'Love Light' and singer Tony Ray's Steve Perry comparison), whereas 'Nighttime Hunter' reminds me of material on Van Stephenson's 'Suspicious Heart', while 'Give It All Up' could be straight out of the Sugarcreek hand-book. I only recently re-acquainted myself with this fileshare after doing some tidy up in my audio library. I've had it for years (it might have come from my DC Plus years), but I really need to get a high quality fileshare, as this one is really worth it.

I think you should bring this to the downloads section George Smile

Apparently the song 'Nighttime Hunter' was based on the Zodiac Killer, who was all the rage back in the mid 80's.

I first heard about this obscure gem when I trolling YouTube for obscure AOR many years ago. Luckily, very shortly after I was able to acquire the vinyl. The opener 'Love Light' has a huge bright chorus. The aggressive guitar work and keyboard pomp is what shines through on the burning 'I Need Love'. They ratchet it up with the hard rocker 'Nighttime Hunter' and keep that momentum on the last song. All four songs are top notch and display solid production values. Can't recommend this enough, great post.

Your review is spot on George! I too am lucky enough to possess a brand new copy of this rare gem purchased years ago. I even burned it to CD back when I had a CR recorder back in the day (do these even exist anymore?!). If I can lay my hands on it, I'll try and arrange a file share if this helps?
