  • ASIA - Phoenix 2LP Vinyl Set 26th May

    ASIA are a multi-platinum selling, English Rock band who formed in 1981 and celebrated their 40th Anniversary in 2021. ASIA announce the release of Phoenix for the first time as a 2 vinyl LP set on 26th May. Phoenix was originally released in 2008 and was their first studio album with the original line-up in a quarter century.

    In terms of sound this emotional, compelling comeback album sees Asia continue the very high standards from where they left off in 1985, as ever displaying suppleness when stretching out into multi-part suites while retaining a knack for big, arena pop hooks.

    Their 1982 self-titled debut album reached number one in several countries, including 9 weeks topping the US charts, with lead single ‘Heat Of The Moment’ making the top 40 in over a dozen, including US Blogs

    This is the second of four critically acclaimed ‘reunion’ releases (2007-2012) featuring vocalist John Wetton ex of King Crimson, guitarist Steve Howe and keyboard player Geoff Downes from Yes and drummer Carl Palmer from Emerson, Lake & Palmer.

    The sleeve comprise unique artwork by world famous rock music artist Roger Dean.

      It is a great/fantastic album!
      I play it often in my car.
      Been decades since I had a player with a stylus.

        I wonder if they're doing Omega and XXX... Live in Tokyo is out, I saw that in the store.

        I won't be getting these because I already got the boxset last year, and I also managed to find the reunion albums on their own used, for the booklets and art. These albums are pretty good.

          i Picked up Under The Bridge and Resonance couple years back when a nj vinyl haunt went out of business. Beautiful stuff from Roger.
