Talisman was the self-titled first studio album by hard rock band Talisman, originally released in 1990 through Airplay/Vinylmania. It has been reissued three times: first in 1993 through Dino Music/Empire Records; followed by a remasteredition in 2003 through Rock Treasures, containing a bonus disc with demos and live recordings from 1990; and This "Deluxe Edition" was released on September 12, 2012, packaged in a Digipak with further bonus material and remastering. Talisman is a great example of why the late 80s melodic rock sound was so much fun. The album is just loaded with songs that should have been huge hit singles.
Fans of muscular progressive rock will love Solar Fire, a concept album loosely designed around cosmology. The album opens with the majestic "Father of Night, Father of Day," which has the drive and complexity of a prime King Crimson track…

By the time David Lindley made his move to a solo career, he was already a legend. Having toured and recorded with such names as Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, and Crosby & Nash, his reputation as a multi-instrumentalist (on almost any stringed instrument) was awesome. Lindley scored a contract with Elektra Records and put together an excellent band that was able to keep up with his eclectic vision. Combining blues, rock & roll, Cajun, Zydeco, Middle Eastern music, and other elements, his debut album is an absolute joy.
