MARK SPIRO is perhaps one of the most gifted songwriters and performers on the AOR / Melodic Rock circuit from the last 30 years. His name is often named in the same breath as the likes of Desmond Child or Diane Warren.
A majority have known him only has a songwriter, a talented such.
Heart, Bad English, Lita Ford and Giant, where he actually where meant to be lead vocalist, are just some of the artists that has been blessed with his compositions.
Despite the fact that he has had success as a songwriter, and still do, he doesn't come near as solo artist.
His first 'American' album (Mark recorded his debut in Germany in the mid-eighties) "Care Of My Soul", was a beautiful compendium of his sensibility writing fabulous melodies.
Now, Spiro will re-release "Care Of My Soul" remastered and with a couple of bonus tracks.
More than that, he will release together "Care Of My Soul Vol.2", the sequel, including all new compositions.
At the moment, Mark is working in Julian Lennon's new album, writing and playing, so the date of release of both discs is uncertain.
But as appetizer, here we have an exclusive promotional CD (not for sale), not only including some of the new tracks from "Care Of My Soul Vol.2", but also many unreleased songs from his vaults that probably never will be released.
Also present is one of the bonuses to be featured in the reissue of the 1996 album.
A must have for Mark Spiro and Melodic Rock / AOR fans in general.
