Head back 30 years and we find a British AOR band, A.O.K (as they were back then) on the cusp of something big. Prestige gigs with Danger Danger and Dare, record company showcases, open air festivals and all the best rock clubs, the bread and butter of touring for a young band fed their hunger for playing live. With songs like ‘Loving The Danger’, ‘Two Souls’, ‘Why Can’t Love Survive’ and more, it seemed certain that A.O.K would become one of the premium melodic rock acts in the UK.
I don’t care if you’re a fan of the band or not. I am and will always be an Anvil fan for life, so just deal with it. If you’re a fan of the band, then add this one to your collection. If you hate them, then move along, there’s nothing to see here. If you’re new to the band, then give them a shot.
Noting Winwood and Clapton on the same bill I couldn’t fail to appreciate the significance that the two performed in the same location, albeit in the same band – Blind Faith, nearly 50 years ago.
