DONNIE IRIS - King Cool [Rock Candy remastered +1] (2021) *0dayrox Exclusive* full

Rock Candy Records has just remastered & reloaded DONNIE IRIS‘ the most celebrated Eighties albums with a pristine sound quality, and for many his best album is 1981’s “King Cool“, in this reissue including a bonus track.
Squeezing out a sound somewhere between The Cars and Foreigner with a dash of radio-friendly AOR, Iris and his kindred spirit, producer, keyboard player & songwriter Mark Avsec formed Donnie Iris And The Cruisers in the late Seventies, releasing a successful debut followed by this one a year after.
”King Cool” is rammed with potential hit singles that were presented in a luscious style with hints of classic old-school radio-rock but blessed with a smooth AOR sheen.
