IAIN ASHLEY HERSEY: "Vintage Love - The Best Of"

Rating: 8/10

Label: Avenue Of Allies

Review by Martien Koolen

For people who are not familiar with the work of guitar picker Iain Ashley Hersey this is truly a great album as you can enjoy 15 mid tempo melodic hard rock tracks filled with lots of energetic guitar solos on this compilation.

Vintage Love contains 4 songs from the album Fallen Angel featuring singers Paul
Shortino, Dante Marchi and Mike Stone, 5 songs from his second album Holy Grail with vocalists David Montgomery, Graham Bonnet, Carsten Schulz and Randy Williams, and 5 songs from his third album Nomad featuring Carsten Schulz and Doogie White on vocals. The latter sings the Rainbow cover L.A.Connection.

There is only one new song on this album, namely Red Head Rampage, sung by Carsten Schulz. If you already possess the three albums of Hersey it will be really not worthwhile to purchase this best of album.

However, it is a great classic rock album and play it LOUD, please! My favs are: Blood Of The Kings and When Will My Love Fade.
