The Essential Series - 2018 Purist AOR (Volume 1) by Gdazegod
I could sit here and discuss the merits of our favourite sub-genre of music AOR until I'm blue in the face. So I won't. Read on.
Shelly T - 1987 Out Of Control
This is a melodic hard rock band with Christian leanings. They originated from the Santa Rosa area north of San Francisco, and released this rare hard-to-find LP back in 1987.
Merryweather Stark - 2018 Carved In Rock
As to be expected, this is a big boisterous slab of heavy rock with a slight bluesy tinge. The album lives in a 70's fat bottomed groove with tough riffs and funky rhythms for friends.
Mott The Hoople - 2004 Live (30th Anniversary Edition)
There are some truly great live albums out there, mainly from the 70's, 'KISS Alive', 'Frampton Comes Alive', UFO's 'Strangers In The Night' etc, but strangely this one gets forgotten about. This album is right up there with those classics.

Broughton, Edgar (Band) - 1970 Sing Brother Sing
This album was released at a time when pretty much anything went. EBB are without doubt an acquired taste and they are not without a certain charm.

Thomson, Steve - 1989 Steve Thomson
Overall, these songs are reasonably good. The familiar Bob Marlette touches come to the fore on several tunes, but not overly so.
Blizzen - 2016 Genesis Reversed
With an EP recorded in 2015 and put into their stockpile, 'Genesis Reversed' is Blizzen's first full-length affair, and is a reasonable effort, if not for a couple of issues.

Electric Light Orchestra - 1977 Out Of The Blue
Who can forget the big spaceship design on the album cover? It really was a stand-out back in 1977 upon release, and was sure-fire way to sell a record.

Electric Light Orchestra - 1976 A New World Record
Unlike their previous release 'Eldorado', 'A New World Record' changed course markedly, as radio appeal and their requirement for shorter songs meant that ELO had to adapt, which they did successfully.

Adellaide - 2017 Flying High
As a full album this is solid representation of AOR coming out of Brazil. Good to see a more melodic side coming out of that country.
