It was 1993 that James Studer (Key, Vo) and Wayne Nelson (B, Vo), known as L.A. Top Studio Session musicians released their own project album "Endless Summer" under the name of The LA COWBOYS only in Japan. The album's reputation had been spread all over the world but unfortunately the album has been out of print for a long time. Therefore, many AOR/West Coast Pop Music fans mainly in Europe have to find out its used CD copy but in many cases their effort were in vain because nobody wants to sell this album to the used CD dealer. Now, this CD is slotted to be reissuing by AOR Heaven, Germany based well-known CD retailer as a limited edition of 1,000 copies worldwide. Don't miss this chance.
