INFINITY (Mitch Malloy / Reb Beach) - Infinity '87 (previously unreleased / remastered) - lossless full

As requested, here’s INFINITY self-titled album, the (not yet) all-star project that was recorded back in 1986/87 featuring stellar vocalist Mitch Malloy and Red Dawn / Rainbow / Yngwie keyboardist David Rosenthal. The rest of the line-up consists of various session guys, including one very young Reb Beach (Whitesnake, Winger) on guitars.
For one of the many reasons seen in the music industry, the record never was released at the time, but never it’s too late and decades later years “Infinity” finally saw the light of day.
The nine tracks that make up this lost, classic sounding recording are nothing short of blinding keyboard-driven ’80s melodic hard rock with soaring vocals. Some of these songs you might have already heard, although performed by other artists.
There’s “Secrets”, covered by Message in 1998 on their ‘Fine Line’ album, and some material has been recorded by Rosenthal’s classic band Red Dawn on their masterpiece ‘Never Say Surrender’ album.
The ‘unheard’ tracks are all good, a bit less keyboard-driven and more melodic hard rock, slightly less heavy than Red Dawn.

What’s special about this release is the fact that one track didn’t really exist until the release of this album started taking shape. The song “Liar” was never completed back in 1986, but resurrected from the original tape it was recorded on, repaired enough to become a true backing track, with Mitch Malloy adding a brand new lead vocal and drum track from his studio in Nashville.

Mitch Malloy comments: “Infinity was basically me and Dave (Rosenthal) and we used different guys to play on the tracks. It was 1986-87. I was a kid. So was Dave. I was singing in clubs in Jersey and making a name for myself and looking for a real band and Dave was looking for a singer. Rainbow had just broken up and he was wanting to be in his own band.
I was sick of playing the clubs and looking to step up and it worked out. We had some fun and wrote some songs and never got signed so we both moved on to different things.
It’s exciting for us that this 80s old music is finally going to be heard. We worked hard on it and were very proud of it. And for how old I was and for the time I am still very proud of it. It’s really my first real recording sessions ever.
Dave and I had a lot of laughs and a lot of fun and we worked very hard to make out music as good as we could possibly make it. And I think it shows.”

Yes, it really shows, indeed.
“Infinity” is a true gem, a real statement of the best years in AOR / Melodic Hard Rock history. The sound quality and production is surprisingly good for an indie recording. That’s not strange with Rosenthal at charge as the man is a perfectionist, and a superb songwriter, arranger and producer since his younger days.
Reb Beach offers some of his exquisite guitar play while Mitch Malloy is fabulous as ever.
