Starting with a very short series of posts of stuff that should be on here but isn’t – filling the gaps!
Pouting and with the words Idol obscuring his first name , reborn as a fully fledged rock God, William Michael Albert Broad hit mega stardom with this track. Here in it’s full phat “Extended Version” produced by Keith Forsey adding a bit more rock and synth to proceedings. A classic , nuff said!
Credit where credit is due he could perform live and delivers the goods on a rather sweary and punky “(Do Not) Stand In The Shadows.” Rock riffing abounds on the powerful “Blue Highway.”
Both recorded at The Hollywood Palladium, California in March 1984. Both tracks were written and produced with Steve Stevens (as well as the A-side) the true writing force behind Idol’s stuff.
