C.T.P. / CHRISTIAN TOLLE PROJECT - The Real Thing [2022 reissue] full

Highly respected German guitarist Christian Tolle is ready to release a new album soon, meanwhile he is reissuing his CHRISTIAN TOLLE PROJECT first albums, long time out of print. If Tolle’s name is new to you, he was part of many celebrated AOR / Melodic Rock records as session musician including Chasing Violets, Reece, AOR, Universe, Tango Down, Cooper Inc., etc, and for his C.T.P. albums he always get collaborating some of the best cats in the business. Tolle has complete control of C.T.P., from songwriting to production & mix.

The Real Thing” is C.T.P. second album from 2005, featuring a stellar cast of musicians. We find the unique Steve Lukather (Toto) playing on two tracks, Doug Aldrich (ex-Whitesnake, The Dead Daisies), the exquisite Tim Pierce, bass monster Chuck Wright, while Praying Mantis’ John Cuijpers is on lead vocals, among others.
Of course, this is classic melodic Rock / AOR plenty of smooth melodies reminiscent of the glorious ’80s, a wide variety of timeless tunes from uptempo rocking tracks to catchy AOR anthems and Westcoast influences.
