Description

Ashbury - Endless Skies CD. Reissue of classic early 80s hard rock private press record from Arizona! A real gem for fans of classic hard rock like Jethro Tull and even 70s metal heads into such obscurities as Legend (From the Fjords) or southern rockers into groups like The Outlaws. Hypnotic vocal hooks and a mystical atmosphere mixing acoustic and electric guitars lures you right into this group's unique hard rock sound. It's amazing how such talent can slip right under the radar.

Track Listing:

  1. The Warning
  2. Take Your Love Away
  3. Twilight
  4. Vengeance
  5. Madman
  6. Hard Fight
  7. No Mourning
  8. Mystery Man
  9. Endless Skies

“Hard rock ripper with progressive edge; been compared to Black Sabbath and Bill Nelson” - The Acid Archives

"Some people are just good at certain things, just rule at something. Tom Brady at playing quarterback in the NFL, for instance. Sidney Crosby in hockey, as an example. Dennis Bergeron at coming up with amazing obscure hard rock. I mean, let's face it, here's a guy who (along with his late partner, Phil Baker) turned me onto: Winterhawk, Slauter Xstroyes, Full Moon, Sorcery, Manilla Road's "Dreams Of Eschaton," do I need to go on? Well, Dennis has done it again, this time hitting me right between the eyes with a little album that came out of Oklahoma in 1983. Now I've heard that the wind goes sweeping down the plain in Oklahoma, but the guitars must have too, and a couple guys named Randy & Rob Davis must've been standing there, waiting to catch 'em. They did and then they started to play like madmen (well, there's a song on the album called "Madman," so...) and came up with this absolute beaut of a record. There is really very little I can say about how good this damn thing is, from beginning to end. The songs are so good, the playing (Randy Davis - lead guitar) & singing (Rob Davis) so spectacular that you're going back & hitting "repeat" to hear every single track again. So what does ASHBURY actually sound like? The best description I can think of is The Moody Blues songs & vocal melodies crossed with the hard rock riffs & leads of Full Moon (or for the obscure-challenged, Ritchie Blackmore, maybe). From the opening of "The Warning" through scorched-in-your-brain hook-laden jewels like "Twilight" & "Vengeance," this album stands up with anything from the '70's, including all the big boys. You then finish up with the 7+ minute epic title cut and your face-to-face with an opus that finds it's equal in Full Moon's "Winter City" & Winterhawk's "Period Of Change." This is the real deal, kids, & it's only a shame that ASHBURY never did a follow-up. Essential for any '70's hard rock fanatic!" - Chaos Realm

 

Ashbury played Reggies in Chicago in 2013 and tore the house down!

"This is my Favorite Band!!! Surely you have this album or you are getting it now, right? Superb songwriting-hypnotic vocals with outstanding harmony-etherial mood and lyrics-fantasy-searing melodic guitar leads-this one has it all! No wonder it is the #1 seller for this label in Hard Rock & Heavy Metal for so long!! Don't see their other album here though--"Something Funny Going On"--2004 release, every bit as good as this one!! Find it at www.ashburyonline.com--you can also get "Endless Skies" on original edition virgin vinyl for less than Rockadrome!! I saw the "Davis Brothers" (founding members of Ashbury) perform live in Tucson, AZ. in 1980--incredible!!! You gotta have this band in your collection!"
