"Permanent Mark" is the second studio album by John West. This time John opted for a more melodic and song oriented approach and the resulting record is a mixture of the several Hard Rock influences - between Cozy Powell and Glenn Hughes. A musically intense and passionate work with a very satisfying production which makes the record very accessible and listenable thanks to the great performances by the musicians and artists involved.
John West was formerly the lead vocalist of the Danish metal band Royal Hunt. He has also released several solo albums and before the Royal Hunt fame he has achieved some fame as the singer of Artension. "Mind Journey" - first solo album from this vocalist. Very solid and consistent album.
Barclay James Harvest had streamlined their sound considerably after leaving the Harvest label, culminating (so many felt) in the mellifluous music of Gone to Earth. Their pretensions to progressive rock all but abandoned, BJH here invites comparison to contemporaries like Supertramp, REO Speedwagon, and Fleetwood Mac (some of whom were similarly tagged with the prog rock label early on)…
Elton John's Classic Album Selection (1970-73) box set is comprised of five of the music legend's most influential and critical acclaimed albums: Elton John, Tumbleweed Connection, Madman Across The Water, Honky Chateau, and Don’t Shoot Me I’m Only The Piano Player. These albums (now including selected bonus tracks) provided the backbone of Elton’s early career and were the source of a series of breakthrough hits which would propel him to become one of the most successful British artists of all time.
