"No Brakes" is a 1984 album by John Waite and was released in June 1984 the United States on the EMI America label. It features the number 1 hit single "Missing You." No Brakes was certified gold on September 4, 1984.
"Ignition" is the debut solo album from Rock singer-songwriter John Waite (ex-vocalist for The Babys). It was released on Chrysalis in late June 1982, and produced by Neil Giraldo (producer/guitarist for Pat Benatar, who was on the same label).
This collection spans Waite's career with The Babys and his solo work and includes 2 previously unreleased tracks: "Love Is A Rose To Me" and "World In A Bottle."
A 17-track career retrospective that not only spans the mid-'70s to the mid-'90s, but encompasses solo cuts and songs that John Waite recorded with the Babys in the '70s and Bad English in the '80s. For all that, it's remarkably inconsequential right-of-center mainstream commercial rock, whether he's playing guitar-based pop/rock with the Babys or doing the power ballad thing with Bad English. Includes his 1984 number one solo single "Missing You," the Bad English smashes "When I See You Smile" and "Price of Love," and several smaller hits.
This collection is really quite interesting. With a couple of unissued tracks, b-sides, soundtrack hits, unknown gems, this collection is a good place to go for those who only have his hits from prior compliations.
With his release of BAR DEL MATTATOIO, a challenging and irreverent fusion of jazz, classical, Tropicália, and experimental musics, SEIGEN ONO transports the listener to a place that is nearly tactile, sweaty, absolutely sensual, intellectually challenging, and maybe even a bit psychedelic, while maintaining a delicate humanity that is shadowed with melancholy. The music is bold, but never overbearing, humble without timidity, and presents an incredible trip through, what might seem a contradiction of musical terms, but is, instead, a cohesive, complex musical statement, bound together by a strong sense of rhythm and a wicked, if understated, sense of humor and good will. BAR DEL MATTATOIO is a bold and gorgeous work of music that, at times, shyly pretends to look in the other direction, but never loses focus.
