JOHN NORUM - Another Destination [Rock Candy Remastered] (2020) *EXCLUSIVE* full

As part of the Rock Candy Records remastered reissue of Europe guitarist JOHN NORUM solo albums, here’s in exclusive his third, “Another Destination“.
Norum again shows exquisite taste in his choice of vocalist. Kelly Keeling, originally of Baton Rouge, then later with MSG, King Kobra, George Lynch and others came in for this one, and shared several writing credits with Norum.

A couple of collaborations between Norum, Keeling and Alan Lorber, the legendary NY arranger/producer/composer, ‘Inside’ and ‘Resurrection Time’ prime the album nicely… neatly setting up a rambunctious cover of Humble Pie’s ‘Strange Days’.

They find that opening trio a hard act to follow. That said, Keeling’s bluesy growl locks onto a primitively hypnotic Norum riff on ‘Spirit World’, and Norum’s showpiece instrumental, ‘Shimmering High’ boldly mixes the lyrical and the visceral, staying the pace long enough to allow some real depth to emerge.

The remastering here is almost breathtaking. From the first track, the band are in the room. Classy and classic. You don’t listen, you wade through it.
Highly Recommended
