In our second of three episodes talking about Sheriff and its splinter groups, we turned our focus this week on the 40% of the band that formed Frozen Ghost. More successful in Canada, the duo of Arnold Lanni and Wolf Hassel scored a U.S. hit with "Should I See" from their 1987 debut album. Expect to hear that, "Beware The Masque," "Dream Come True" and a low-quality bootleg version of "Promises" recorded in Ottawa in '91 or '92. They are quite possibly the one band you never heard of but really should have. Who says history can't be fun?
Chat room was busy again for the first half of the show. It seems that some were getting disconnected from the room. This means that our technical issue last week probably wasn't just our issue as they were tinkering with things. Otherwise, all went well. Then again, a higher quality recording of "Promises" would have been nice but you have to work with what you have and every subsequent audio compression only kills the clarity (not that there was much to start with.) So much to do and lots of projects coming.
