Dakota was born with the first release called "If It Takes All Night" . In 1984. "Runaway" (MCA-5502) was released, on the MCA/Full Moon label, engineered by Humberto Gatica, and produced by 'Hummy' and Danny Seraphine. And then, the 3 remaining members created a local release, "The Lost Tracks", several tracks from which got large amounts of airplay on local radio, particularly the pop ballad "All Through the Night". In March of 1994, They embarked on getting back on the scene from across Europe and eventually singed a deal with Escape Music to re-release "The Lost Tracks" album (slightly modified) as "Mr.Lucky"(ESM-005). The success of the new release led to the members to restart writing together again, and put together yet another version of the band. "The Last Standing Man" is the real brand-new album of this band. If you like early 80's Chicago tune such as the power pop sung by Bill Champlin, you will be fond of this album.

Andres Carlson is one of the young Swedish artists. His name can be found on Bill Champlin's solo album "He Started To Sing" as one of the co-writers, back vocalists and arrangers. He debuted as Andres with the album "The Real Thing" in the fall of 1996. Some of the songs on this album are a little bit too poppy such as the recent Swedish pop sounds. However, His melodies are very good on every tune. Some of the tunes have R&B tastes, the others are good acoustic tune. I recommend this disc because Japanese version has just been on sale with 3 bonus tracks at last.




Air Supply has just delivered us their brand-new album at the end of 1997 with plenty of good melodies.

If you want to buy this album, CD NOW would accept your international mail order.






Mark T. Williams is the Drummer for artists such as Don Henley, Cher, Air Supply, Eddie Money, Crosby Stills & Nash, Tina Tuner, Paul Rogers etc.Or I have to say he is the brother of Joseph Williams (ex TOTO lead singer).His music style is very similar as that of Joseph's, that is to say, very good Adult Oriented Rock / Adult Contemporary Music. If you would like Toto featuring Joseph, Mark T Williams must be one of your favourite artsits.
