Finally!!!

It's about time this prog rock classic became available! Now if Apple can only sign Tool. Not holding my breath though.

Outstanding!

Outstanding! It's great to have this gem on download. My vinyl of this was getting worn and it lacked the bonus content. While Steve Howe's outing with Asia received more acclaim, I think GTR was the better band(no disrespect intended to Asia).

As the bonus material attests, they were a great live band. I saw them in a very small venue in Austin, Texas and they played with such heart and energy.

A definite must for prog rock fans.

Exceptional Album with amazing additions

The original GTR Album was masterful. It bridged the classic style of 70s and early 80s progressive rock with a radio friendly sound and with powerful singing, plus two amazing guitar players. (Steve Hackett of Genesis and Steve Howe of Yes and Asia). There are some killer songs on the original album (which is probably a 4 out of 5), but this re-release contains some gems from 1986 concerts that include Genesis songs and some other classics. Plus, GTR adds a few unreleased songs from their would-be second studio album. Max Bacon is at his best on the collection of songs both live and studio and this album is a fantastic snapshot of how classic and progressive rock had a re-birth and hit the charts massively in the mid-80s. This relic of the 80s still feels fun and powerful today, a bit dated, but worthy of praise. ASIA, Yes, Genesis, Journey, Styx, REO, Police, Foreigner fans unite. GTR has touches of them all.
