HOLY WATER The Collected Sessions Perris (2009)

Holy Water

Holy Water have been resurrected from a late eighties backwater. This collection brings together several sessions - the band never actually released an album. "The Green Machine Sessions" from 1991-2 were produced by Foreigner keyboard player Al Greenwood and it is somewhat remiss that the opener 'I'm Not Worried Anymore' has so far escaped wider attention. A slice of radio-friendly rock, whilst 'If I Knew Then…' and 'Some Things Have To Happen' are perhaps unsurprisingly in the Foreigner/Bad Company mould from a band whose pedigree included sessions for artists like Doro, Quiet Riot and Widowmaker.

Elsewhere 'If I Knew Then...' is reprised for the 'Studio 1212 sessions' from 1989 with instrumental 'Monster Iff' further demonstrating the band's stadium rock pretensions and Thomas Jude's classy guitar shapes.

Two recent sessions give the band's take on Stevie Wonder's 'Living For The City' which in truth is fairly disposable, and there's a ballad 'All I Need' featuring The Lizard's Patrick Klein who also remastered this collection. Altogether…an excellent resume of a band that might have been.
