MARC FERRARI ‘Lights, Camera, Action!’ (Z Records ZR1997079) (2003)

Marc Ferrari was the guitarist in two successful hard rock bands, Keel and Cold Sweat, plus he also famously appears as the guitarist in ‘Wayne World’s 2’! The CD is a collection of tunes that were recorded for film soundtracks, video games and so on. There is a strong line-up of singers including Autograph’s Steve Plunkett and Stan Bush.

The opening four songs all feature Bob Reynolds on vocals, who has style similar to Joe Lynn Turner. The lyrics can be a bit corny, but the hooklines and music are top notch, prime time melodic hard rock. Winger member Paul Taylor also appears on all these tracks adding depth to Marc Ferrari’s guitar runs. Pick of these tracks is ‘Run The Road’ and ‘Caution to the Wind’, both featuring a driving riff and strong vocals from Bob Reynolds.

Steve Plunkett makes ‘Too Hot To Stop’ sound unsurprisingly like a prime time Autograph song! ‘Capture the Dream’ is an AOR fans delight with Stan Bush on lead vocals, very much like mid-tempo Survivor. Album closer is a blues rock number ‘The Story of My Life’, with Jeff Wilson on vocals along with some great harmonica playing from Gary Allegretto.

If you like hard rock from classic acts like Keel, Y&T, Autograph et al, then this album will be right up your street! Well played and crafted rockers, featuring some great guitar.
