Synopsis

Album Description
2009 reissue of this AOR classic. Originally release in 1984, the debut and only album from the curiously named Oakland-based Billy Satellite may not have set the charts on fire but it did register high on the AOR Richter scale of melodic Rock fans the world over. Led by the supremely talented Monty Byrom (later to front successful country rockers Big House) and featuring Danny Chauncey (later to join .38 Special) on guitar the band enjoyed a brief moment in the spotlight when tracks such as 'Satisfy Me' and 'I Wanna Go Back' (later made a sizeable hit by Eddie Money) achieved wide spread airplay. Although the band's initial success was severely frustrated, over the years, their legacy has continued to grow with many AOR fans citing this album as one of the greatest records of its kind that failed to achieve, at the time, major recognition. Rock Candy.
 

CD Reviews

One of the best Rock albums of all time.

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I saw this band in a small club in Houston, Texas right when this album came out. They were a great band, whom have moved on to other projects. For that moment in time, I thought they were going to be huge. Even though I only had this on vinyl, I would dust off the ole turn table now and then and give it a listen over the last 25 years. Now that I have it on disc and I-tunes, I listen to it on a regular basis. Just like Boston, I never get tired of the awesome tunes on this record. Give it a listen! You will not be disappointed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
