Robin George Angel Air Biog  2022

Angel Air are delighted to re-welcome Robin George to an extended period of contract to the label. Apart from the existing albums available on the label (and web site) Robin has brought with him a further batch of albums that will be available soon on all digital stores and a brand new album, Dangerous Daze that will be released on CD later this year. 

Robin George has worked with many more artists and projects than most realise, and during the ‘80s he built up a name for himself as a guitar player, musician, producer, songwriter and solo artist. Robin’s recent projects include producing the sharing project, LovePower and Peace, which features over sixty artists from the worlds of Rock, Blues, Soul and Pop who all donated their time and talents. 100% of all profits go directly to three worthwhile charities. The project features, amongst others, members of Alice Cooper, AC/DC, UFO, Asia, Diamond Head, Motorhead, Uriah Heep, Duran Duran, Mott the Hoople, Marshall Law, the Climax Blues Band as well as solo artists Ruby Turner, Arthur Brown, Jaki Graham, Charlie George, Freya Copeland and Vix Fuzzbox.

Robin had teamed up with Pete Haycock and the core members of the LovePower and Peace sharing album to reform a true supergroup. The band also features Mel Collins (The Rolling Stones/ Eric Clapton), Charlie Morgan (Elton John/ Kate Bush), Jacquie Williams (Sister Sledge/ M People) and Charlie Charlesworth (Dangerous Music). The superb album, Broke Heart Blues was mixed by award winning sound engineer, Klaus Bohlmann, the beginning of a long term partnership with Robin which continues to this day. Klaus has since mixed and mastered 9 albums for Robin.


Dangerous Music 2 was also released on Angel Air. Produced by Gus Dudgeon, Robin and Daniel, it features Pino Palladino, Daniel Boone, Charlie Morgan and Chris Thompson.

For another side of Robin George, look and listen no further than Heartlines. A collection of stripped back numbers, Heartlines featuresRobin George in solo/ acoustic mode, with the additional textures of second acoustic or electric guitar and those trademark multi-layered backing & harmony vocals.

Opening with the Dangerous Music brace of 'Heartline' and 'Spy,' Robin George goes on to deliver another twelve acoustic (and electrically backed) numbers including rock and roll lullaby number 'Dark and Stormy', the alt-country blues of 'Moonlight Honey' and fun little looking back number, 'Early Daze.' 

There's also room on Heartlines for a more delicate, acoustic mix of Phil Lynott’s 'Kings Call,' which originally featured in more electric-folk guise on 2001 tribute album The Spirit of the Black Rose.

The only thing you need to have, or hear, from Robin George is the 12" of 'Heartline' and Dangerous Music?
Do me a favour. 
Actually, do yourself a favour and acoustically engage with Heartlines.

Robin George – Feed the Wolf / Surreal Six String
 
Robin George may not have gotten all the plaudits or breaks he deserved across his career but the man who gave us Dangerous Music back in the 80s and later decades should certainly be garnering applause as the musician who made the most of lockdown (by some long, album issuing way).

Hot on the heels of earlier 2021 releases Wilderness and Heartlines come the dovetailing pairing of Feed the Wolf and Surreal Six String; the former is the latest full length studio album from Robin George while the latter is his first fully instrumental offering (much as Heartlines was his first all acoustic release).

That his distinct and individualistic Dangerous Music sound and style is still alive and well is evident from tracks such as opener 'Momma Sister Daughter' (Bolan vocality meets guitar-edged Robin George rock and roll), the muscly and, again, Bolan-esque (an oft-cited and valid comparison) title track and 'Savage Song,' a gritty, fast-paced number on which Mr George isn’t exactly hanging about.
'Savage Song' also highlights a major Robin George trait, that of reinventing & rerecording some of his older songs to suit his current state of musical mind (some may recall 'Savage Song' as a highlight of Damage Control, a supergroup of sorts featuring George, raspy-throated Quireboys front man Spike, Chris Slade and the late Pete Way).

Other Feed The Wolf highlights include 'Funky Rock Groove' (which does exactly what it says on the tin), the bluesy sway of 'Love is Blind' (featuring some tasty guitar licks from Robin George), the edgy but melodic 'Castles in the Sky' (whose origins go back to the History of the Wolverhampton born musician) and the quirkier 'Painful Kiss,' originally from the album of the same name.

The album ends on the similarly quirky and very catchy 'Early Daze,' a looking-back and ‘If I knew then’ styled nod to more carefree and innocent times (a shorter acoustic version also sits on Heartlines).

 
Surreal Six String is a collection of primarily reworked numbers from across Robin George’s career and catalogue, instrumental-ised with the lyric-melody line played on guitar in effective and, on some of the tracks, quite expressive style.

Opener 'Go Down Fighting' was Robin George’s first major single release in 1983 but here is based on his later rocked up version; it therefore works well as a feisty instrumental.

It's also nice to see a place for the atmospheric, tempo shifting instrumental 'Charlotte Starlight,' which goes back to the History album, and 'Love Power & Peace' (featuring Hammond fills from the late Ken Hensley and melodic guitar play from Robin George) from the all-star charity album of that name.

You’ll also find instrumental versions of Wolf numbers 'Painful Kiss' and 'Love is Blind' as well as re-workings of the more rock and roll styled 'Dancing Shoes' (from the Rogue Angels album) and a shorter take of the blues swaggering 'Freedom,' from last year’s BitterSweet HeartBeat album.

Other highlights include 'Brandy Bottle Blues' (another with a self-explanatory title), which features a couple of bars of blues blasting sax from Mel Collins, and album closer 'Oxygen.'
Originally a love song, 'Oxygen' works equally well as an expressive guitar workout in instrumental clothing.     
So another brace of 2021 releases from a man who clearly wasn’t twiddling thumbs during lockdown/s.
Further proof of that ever-busy schedule?
Robin George has also released a fully remastered version of the Asia 2 Marquee gig from 1986 (of which he was an integral part), a Robin George & Dangerous Music Euro Tour Live CD, a RoxStar Legends compilation and a remastered retooling of the Love Power & Peace album as Rocking LovePower.
He is now looking at reissuing some Damage Control music and achieving an official release for the album he recorded with Glenn Hughes in 1989 (previously issued under decidedly dodgy and awful audio quality circumstances). 

No wonder he lives in Spain – he clearly needs, and deserves, the siestas.
