In 80ies, many prominent rockers were so inspired by new wave aestethics in general and synth sounds in particular, that they recorded tracks very different from their regular catalogues.

here is my homemade compilation of some of those records, from proggers Peter Gabriel, Yes, Jethro Tull through hard rockers ZZ Top, Rainbow, Kiss, Uriah Heep, Ian Gillan to hell-bent-for-leather Judas Priest to pop-rockers Smokie and Queen.

Yes, I was made for lovin' you and Owner of a lonely heart are both here.

Hope you enjoy this,
Happy New Year to all of you,
Take On Me
