Roadmaster - Sweet Music 1978 (Pomp Rock/AOR) US


SWEET MUSIC’ was Roadmaster’s second album, a record that was originally issued in 1978 on the Mercury label, and has regarded as arguably the high point of their career. Certainly, the album is amongst the top pomp rock albums of all time, rubbing shoulders with the likes of similar work by Styx, Starcastle, Kansas and Trillion; the epitome of melodic AOR, with a touch of progressive rock thrown in for good measure.
Formed in the comparatively laid back environs of Indianapolis and featuring Steven McNally’s totally unique vocals, Rick Benick’s blazing guitar work and Michael Read’s dazzling keyboard flourishes, ‘Sweet Music’ pushes the pomp rock boundaries to the outer limits of the solar system. One listen to tracks such as ‘It Doesn’t Mean A Thing’, Been Gone To Long’, ‘Higher Higher’ and the anthemic climax of the title track will have you hooked for life.
24-bit remastering from original source tapes, 3,500 word essay about the making of the album, band involvement and additional photos spread out over a 16 page full colour booklet.
