DALBELLO – She [UK Reissue / Repress]

DALBELLO - She [UK Reissue / Repress] full

This request doesn’t exactly match the music featured at 0dayrox, but it’s a pleasure to fulfill, simply because it’s pure ’80s: DALBELLO‘s fifth 1987 album “She“. The LP never was remastered, however this reissue sounds way better (and bigger) after the comparison with the original Eighties CD press.
This talented Canadian musician Lisa Dalbello graced countless albums / recordings with his back-up vocals / songwriting skills, but had a strong solo career as well.
“She” is pure ’80s, from songwriting to production; hi-tech / synth-pop, yet with substance.

Bryan Adams, Alice Cooper, Nena, Mötley Crüe, etc, have connected through a musical collaboration with Dalbello. Queensrÿche covered ‘Gonna Get Close To You’, and Heart recorded ‘Wait For An Answer’.

I must admit that at the time when “She” was originally released I was into more AOR / hard rock stuff, however the name Lisa Dalbello resonated of reading it into many album’s credits.
Additionally, QUEENSRYCHE covered her song ‘Gonna Get Close To You’ on their classic LP ‘Rage For Order’ [1986], and it blow me away.
So immediately I went on a hunt some Lisa Dalbello music, and oh, yeah, that’s right, we didn’t have Internet, social media and definitely no Wikipedia. Anyway, when I finally got my hands on ‘Whomanfoursays’ via my local record store and heard DALBELLO’s original recording, I knew she was a keeper.

“She” is much more commercial and if you want, danceable, however there’s ‘something’ on this record that leaves you the sensation of something more meaty than just ‘synth-pop’. Some lyrics are almost ‘poetic’.
Heck, David Gilmour agreed to drop a guitar solo on one song here.
