Clover - 1977 Unavailable
Clover presented some of the best Country rock with AOR tendencies you are likely to find and both of their final albums should fit nicely in any serious collection.

Huey Lewis (And The News) - 1986 Fore!
I'd forgotten over the years just how great this album is. Sure, I'd frequently hear the big hits still on radio, but there is very little dropoff between the number one hits and the rest of the songs. This album didn't have quite the sales success of 'Sports', even though it had more hit singles that went even higher on the charts. And I consider it to be even stronger overall than 'Sports', which is pretty high praise. But it still sold around four million copies. One of the best albums to emerge from the 80s.

Huey Lewis (And The News) - 1991 Hard At Play
'Hard At Play' was released at the start of 1991 and at this stage in his career, perhaps Lewis had decided in his own words 'Hell, I've made enough money, now I wanna have some fun!'. Certainly there's some infectious enthusiasm contained in the grooves of this album.

Huey Lewis And The News - 1980 Huey Lewis And The News
The album went unrecognised and is barely mentioned to this day. It's an angry debut half the time, the bands sound becoming smoother over the course of the next three years.

Huey Lewis And The News - 1982 Picture This
Before the ultra success of 1983's 'Sports' album, Huey Lewis And The News warmed up in fine fashion with an album possibly as deserving of such sales, 'Picture This'. It would be wrong to classify The News as strictly AOR, but they make a strong case here.

Huey Lewis And The News - 1983 Sports
Huey Lewis And The News seemed to be pigeonholed into a pop market corner, appealing to the average streamlined American consumer, but inevitably this must rank as one of the most successful AOR recordings in history, even though two decades plus later many are still not aware of it!
