Scrolls of the Prophet is the first single-disc Tosh best-of to contain tracks from his Columbia, Rolling Stones, and EMI albums. Since the set originates with Columbia, the material from the other two labels is limited; there are five tracks from Equal Rights and four from Legalize It, with two from Bush Doctor and one from Wanted Dread & Alive, plus three rare or previously unreleased tracks.
1991's Recycled is the third and final album by the melodic hard rock band Prophet. Like its predecessor (Cycle of the Moon), Recycled featured former Surgin' main man Russell Arcara on vocals. Appropriately, Recycled follows the same formula as Cycle of the Moon. The album is a straightforward melodic hard rock release, with big guitar hooks, prominent keyboards and of course a couple of ballads.
After having released the first album, Fasano and Poley left the band. Poley joined the group Danger Danger as its lead vocalist and bandleader. Prophet then invited Russell Arcara (vocals) and Michael Sterlacci (drums & vocals) to join. During this period the band was managed by Noel Monk, who previously managed Van Halen. This lineup recorded the band's second album Cycle of the Moon for Megaforce/Atlantic. This album is considered the most important by the group and peaked at 137 on the Billboard 200.
The Best AOR / Pomp album of all times? For many people, PROPHET's self-titled debut it is. A fusion of '80s AOR and Melodic Rock with late Seventies bright progressive / pomp rock, this album is pure gold from start to finish. As in most albums of those mentioned styles, keyboards / synths play a fundamental role adding to the complexity of the song structures. Vocal duties are handled by no less than three of the band's members, and one of them is Ted Poley (who of course would later front Danger Danger), who actually is the drummer of the band here.
In 1969 – some three years before his self-titled debut solidified his stature as a pre-eminent string bender – Roy Buchanan (guitar/vocals) signed with Polydor Records and began work on his first full-length platter. In 2004, three-and-a-half decades later, the audio archivists at Hip-O Select finally issued The Prophet: The Unreleased First Polydor Album (2004)…
