Melodic Hard Rock, AOR
Another revered piece of AOR is this southern tinged effort from Memphis rocker Jimmy Davis. Not a lot known about him prior to this release but he gets a bit of assistance from some well known names in the rock biz, including guitarist Joe Walsh (Jojo Gunne, Eagles etc), and ex Cobra man Jack Holder, who also handles the production duties in conjunction with Don Smith. Why is it revered you ask? Well, it's got hooks, exceptional melodies in the right places, and the keyboards and guitars compliment each other to perfection. Added to that the breathy vocal style of Davis over the top of it and you get a classic cocktail of AOR.
