Product Notes

Three disc (two CDs + NTSC/Region 0 DVD) set, the first all encompassing, career spanning retrospective from this highly respected singer and song writer, from his first hits of the late 1960s, right up to the Graham Bonnet Band in 2017. Few frontmen can claim to have had such a lengthy and far-reaching career, first finding fame as part of The Marbles duo, who enjoyed a hit with the Bee Gees' 'Only One Woman' in 1968, followed by a solo career across the 1970s, again enjoying further success with the Bee Gees on the disco flavored 'Warm Ride'. He achieved what was possibly his greatest success when he replaced Ronnie James Dio in 1979 for Down To Earth in Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow. Worldwide hits followed with the single 'All Night Long' and Russ Ballard's 'Since You Been Gone'. Solo success beckoned with the song 'Night Games', plus Russ Ballard's 'S. O. S. ', from the Line-Up album in 1981, backed-up by a stellar line-up that included Cozy Powell and Jon Lord, as well as guest appearances from Status Quo's Rossi and Parfitt. Graham briefly joined The Michael Schenker Group for 1982's Assault Attack. Recognizing that his greatest success to date was with the melodic hard rock of Rainbow, Graham formed Alcatrazz in a similar mold, with a then little known Swedish guitarist Yngwie J. Malmsteen, and the No Parole From Rock 'N' Roll LP. Sadly, this line-up only lasted one studio and one live in Japan album, where Alcatrazz had quickly built a huge following. Graham evidently had a knack for finding highly influential guitar talent, recording second Alcatrazz opus with Steve Vai and the Disturbing The Peace album. A third and final Alcatrazz record produced 'Blue Boar' from Dangerous Games before the singer hooked up with Chris Impellitteri and the band Impellitteri. Graham has subsequently recorded with Forcefield, Japan's Anthem, the Taz Taylor Band and the super group Blackthorne that he formed with guitarist Bob Kulick in 1993. Over the years, Graham has also found time to reunite with Impellitteri, and more recently for successful shows with Alcatrazz and The Michael Schenker Group. Now fronting the Graham Bonnet Band, represented here by an unreleased version of the Rainbow hit 'All Night Long', plus new songs 'My Kingdom Come' and 'Mirror Lies', this Anthology is completed by a DVD of many rare video clips taken from across Graham's career, and includes some track-by-track intros from Graham, filmed especially for this collection.
