Frank Vestry is one of the greatest vocalists in the melodic rock/AOR-genre, I wrote positive things about him when I wrote about the Laneslide album Flying High in 2013. And I wrote positive things about the album as well, some tracks are from that album and others are from other projects where Vestry have been involved. It is his collection from his decades of singing and features a legion of great musicians – some of the tracks are remastered and they are a whole dozen if you count them all.

It is a dozen tracks ad they are of the AOR kind; the remastering is expertly done so it doesn’t really feel like tracks compiled from several different projects, they fit well together as a strong unity. Quite the coherent album despite the songs coming from different projects, and well produced, with great vocals, and strong variation as well as decent depth. It is a well-rounded collection of songs, and a plus also for keeping it pretty short and not having too many songs like there are on some compilations.

This is a great album with great songs and brilliant vocals, it is hits all the way through and no weak tracks. I would have liked the cover song Self Cotrol from the Laneslide album, but it is far from a deal breaker as there are other great tracks from that mentioned album, like my favourite of this one Dancing Girls. But picking that favourite isn’t easy and if you were to ask me to listen and pick a favourite late in the year it might be another one, all the songs are great.

I think you should check this album out; it is great and well worth giving a moment of your time. If you do you will get to know a great collection of songs by one of the finest vocalists in the AOR/Melodic rock genre, you shouldn’t miss this one.
